Sesame King Tahini, one of America’s fastest growing health brands announced today they have received verification by the Non-GMO Project for their Roasted and Light Roasted Tahini pastes.

The Non-GMO Project is North America’s only independent verification organization for foods produced in accordance with its Standard for avoidance of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The organization uses a process that combines on-site facility audits, document-based review and product testing to verify compliance with the standard at every level of the supply chain, from manufacturing facilities to ingredient suppliers. The Non-GMO Project shares the belief that everyone deserves an informed choice about whether or not to consume genetically modified organisms.

"We are absolutely thrilled to have both our Roasted and Light Roasted Tahini Non-GMO Project Verified. As a leading manufacturer of tahini, our never ending goal is to produce tahini products that taste great and provide consumers with a healthy food choice. Healthy is good. Healthy and tasty is fantastic,” said Emile D. Maroun, Jr., General Manager of Sesame King Tahini.

Sesame King Tahini pastes are made from 100% pure ground sesame seeds. The sesame seeds are shipped directly from the farms to their facility and are sifted, hulled, roasted and ground to perfection. Each Sesame King Tahini is all-natural, with a subtle, delightful aroma, rich with texture and delicious taste. Sesame King’s parent company, Sunshine International Foods mechanically hulls its sesame seeds, meaning no chemicals or hulling agents are used during the manufacturing process.

Sesame King Tahini pastes provide consumers with a powerful nutritional food choice that packs a kaleidoscope of superior flavors and the following healthier inclusions:

  • Tahini is richer in protein than milk, yogurt, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, walnuts, soya, sunflower, wheat germ and pecan nuts.
  • Tahini contains natural lecithin which reduces blood fat levels and provides protection from environmental pollutants such as nicotine.
  • Tahini provides substantial amounts of many vitamins including Vitamin E, which slows the aging of body cells and helps maintain proper focusing of the eyes.
  • Tahini is also one of the best sources of Vitamin T (very few foods are). Vitamin T improves memory and concentration in combination with Phosphorous also present in Tahini, providing a potent brain and nerve food.

“We have seen an overwhelming response from retailers and consumers to the quality, superior taste and the health benefits that our tahini delivers. We are extremely excited that our Sesame King Tahini continues to grow nationwide,” said Maroun, Jr.
