View Full Version : Maranatha Raw Tahini

I just read the bottle, it says hulled sesame seeds!!! I know the un hulled ones are the better ones as far as calcium but is there another reason that they are better? And does that make the Hulled ones BAD??? and why?? Hmm...does anyone make their own tahini and does it come out as good?

I dont make my own tahini, but as far as the hulled and un hulled sesame it is a taste and looks thing more than anything else.

I've heard it's really, really difficult to make your own Tahini. Maybe that is why the stuff in the jar was probably heated. I would think a coffee grinder or Magic Bullet would be the best bet.

ahhh..the jar does say raw!! minimally processed....hmm..but I thought there was more of a difference between hulled and unhulled.. guess its no biggie than.

I have been following another tread today (the one with the link to the CaPNaK chart on the eco eating site) and came across the following quote
" So if you want to have a source of fat that is alkaline rather than acidic
then the only one that I know of which is viable is unhulled tahini.
Now, unhulled tahini, which is made from unhulled sesame seeds, is above the centre of the CaPNaK Chart right up high in the alkaline area.
And in the opposite direction, down in the acid area, you'll find hulled
sesame seeds. So it's important to know that tahini made from hulled
sesame seeds is actually a very acidic food, whereas unhulled tahini is a
very alkaline food. "

Maranatha actually heats their so called "raw" nut butters. there site explains that the nut is not roasted but when making the actual butter, they heat above raw standards. I emailed them a while back and they apololgized but it's more economical for them.

This company offers a lot of "truly raw" nut butters and things. The link will go straight to the Sesame Tahini page. They also offer Black Sesame Tahini.
