Sesame tahini is ground up sesame seeds. It is a traditional food of the Middle East that is rich in calcium, phosphorus and many other vitamins and minerals.
We now recommend that all adults eat 1 tablespoon of roasted (not raw) sesame tahini every day.
An alternative is to eat 2 tablespoons of hummus, a commonly available prepared food made of tahini and cooked chick peas or garbanzo beans.
Tahini can be eaten plain out of the jar, or it can be spread on a blue corn chip, or spread on top of cooked vegetables.
