Fun facts

Health benefits of tahini:

* Tahini is full of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. In fact, just 1 tablespoon provides more than 10% of the daily value for some nutrients.

* Tahini contains antioxidants called lignans, which help prevent free radical damage to your body and can reduce your risk of disease. Free radicals are unstable compounds. If they are present in high levels in your body, they can damage tissues and contribute to diseases such as type II diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. The content of tahin is particularly high in the sesamine compound of lignan. For example, it can reduce the risk of cancer and protect the liver from free radical damage.

* Some compounds in tahini are highly anti-inflammatory. Although short-term inflammation is a healthy and normal response to injury, chronic inflammation can damage your health.

* Tahini contains compounds that can protect your liver and kidneys from damage. These organs are responsible for removing toxins and waste from the body.
