How much %SFA? PUFA?MUFA? is it cold pressed? Unrefined oil? I dunno about this butter. I generally stick with fish oil, coconut oil, milk butter and extra virgin oilive oil. That’s about it. I might need to add flax oil to up omega 3s in my diet though.

“Think peanut butter, only made with sesame seeds. To make tahini, sesame seeds are soaked in water for a day, then crushed to separate the bran from the kernels. The crushed seeds are put into salted water, where the bran sinks, but the kernels float and are skimmed off the surface. They are toasted, then ground to produce their oily paste. There are two types of tahini, light and dark, and the light ivory version is considered to have both the best flavor and texture.”
