Single-Sourced Origin Tahini Made with White Humera Sesame Seeds

Soom's Sesame Premium Tahini is only made with one ingredient: White Humera sesame seeds—no added oils or fillers, just 100% sesame seeds. This tahini captures the pure essence of the sesame seed. It's rich and silky with a lingering toasty nuttiness. 

Soom's tahini starts with single-sourced origin sesame seeds from Humera, a town in the northwestern Tigray Region of Ethiopia. At harvest, the sesame stalks are harvested by hand and the seeds are shaken out, collected and sent to Israel to be made into tahini. The seeds are roasted before they are pressed into tahini, which gives Soom Sesame Premium Tahini its deep nutty flavor.

How to use

Go beyond the hummus bowl—Soom Sesame Premium Tahini can be used for both savory and sweet preparations (though it does make for a creamy, dreamy hummus if we do say so ourselves). Tahini adds a rich, nutty depth to salad dressings, dips, sauces and soups.

Want to satisfy your sweet tooth? Tahini makes a beautiful addition to baked goods and desserts from shortbread cookies to buttercream frosting. 

Chefs love it too—Soom Sesame Tahini is the chosen tahini for chefs like Michael Solomonov of Zahav in Philadephia, Daniel Bowien of Mission Chinese in New York City and more.
