De La Rosa to Feature New Line of Organic & Kosher Tahini

De La Rosa Tahini recently launched three Organic Tahinis; Whole Toasted Sesame Tahini, Toasted Hulled Sesame Tahini and Naturally Black Toasted. De La Rosa’s Tahini is made from organic, toasted, unbleached sesame seeds which are stone ground into a paste suitable for use in recipes, sauces and spreads. Tahini adds a rich nutty flavor and creaminess to Mediterranean- or Middle Eastern-inspired foods. Most popularly used as a sauce for falafel and Hummus, Tahini paste is also used in salad dressings and vegetable purees, Tahini is the main ingredient in halvah. De La Rosa’s Tahini is high in protein and calcium which makes it an advantageous addition to vegetarian and vegan diets. Compared to peanut butter Tahini has higher levels of fiber and calcium and lower levels of sugar and saturated fats. Tahini is also high in many minerals and is a good source of the healthy fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6. Kosher certified by the Chicago Rabbinical Council. A portion of profits are donated to “Rescue the Children Fund” to aid abused children through the Lev Avraham Foundation. For more information please visit:
