FAQs: Max Sesame Tahini
MAX Sesame - raw (unroasted) seeds

MAX Sesame — pre-sprouted sesame seeds
Since ancient times in China, pre-sprouted sesame seeds have been commonly used as a food and medicine. Max Sesame is made from pre-sprouted sesame seeds which have just begun to germinate but haven’t yet sprouted. This is the stage at which they contain the most nutrients and lead to MAXimum nutrient absorption.
What is the difference between pre-sprouted and sprouted sesame seeds?
Pre-sprouted sesame seeds possess a tremendously high amounts of vitamins, minerals, protein, enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, bioflavonoids and chemo-protectants - all the energy, vitamins and nutrients necessary for it to transform from a small seed into a mature plant. Seeds that have just started to sprout have much more nutrients that you can digest than seeds that haven’t yet sprouted.
During the pre-sprouted stage the calcium, iron, zinc*, magnesium, and other minerals in the sesame seeds bind with the proteins. The binding of the protein and the minerals causes the vitamins and minerals to be more easily and effectively absorbed by the body than any other tahini on the market!
** Only MAX provides a high amount of natural zinc in the hulls. Other hulled sesame seed tahinis do not provide this mineral. Zinc is essential in the digestion of Omega 3.
MAX Sesame - whole, unhulled seeds
MAX Sesame is made from whole, unhulled sesame seeds which contain more nutrients and soluble fiber than hulled sesame seeds. Foods which contain fiber eases digestion and help you maintain a healthy weight. Fiber also helps lower cholesterol, control sugar levels, keeps you feeling full and satisfied for a long time, and is good for your digestive health.
Fiber Eases Digestion
MAX Sesame is high in fiber, which eases digestion and helps you maintain a healthy weight.
MAX Sesame’s high fiber content helps relieve constipation and helps maintain bowel health, therefore MAX Sesame is recommended to people who have difficulty with their digestive system. It’s recommended to give MAX Sesame to patients undergoing chemotherapy to prevent the common side effect of constipation.
MAX Sesame Tahini For MAXimum Nutrition Absorption
For years, people have been trying to benefit from the nutrition available in raw sesame seeds without grinding them. Eating them this way is unpleasant and inefficient as pre-sprouted sesame seeds have a strong, bitter taste and because they can’t be digested and absorbed properly by the body.
Additionally, our teeth cannot grind the seeds sufficiently, so most of the sesame seeds are swallowed without being chewed and pass right through our digestive system, and are eliminated in the same form in which they were eaten. Therefore, a lot of their nutrients are not absorbed in the body.
People who are conscientious about eating healthy will love Max Sesame Tahini, the only raw, pre-sprouted, whole, unhulled, sesame seed butter. It’s extremely rich in nutrition which is easily absorbed by the body, easy to digest, and easy to eat as a spread, sauce, or in various recipes. Click here for delicious recipes.
Our Sesame Seeds Are Cleaned Without Chemicals
Before sesame seeds can be ground into tahini, they have to be properly sorted and washed in order to remove dirt and stones. Some tahini factories use a liquid chemical solution to wash the sesame seeds that causes the stones and dirt to separate from the sesame seeds. This kind of chemical solution also removes the hull of the sesame seeds, thereby removing valuable nutrition.
Field of Nuts Unique Machinery Produces the Most Nutritious Tahini
Mr. Roger Berman, the founder of Jerusalem Sesame Company, using his knowledge in engineering which he acquired from Cornell University, invented a machine which has a way to clean the sesame seeds without chemicals or human contact. The advantage of this machine is that it ensures that the nutritional value of the hulls of the sesame seeds remains intact. A large part of the nutritional value is found in the hull of the sesame seed. Therefore, MAX Sesame gives you the MAX in nutrition.
Mr. Berman also invented an exclusive machine for grinding large quantities of raw and unhulled sesame seeds at very low temperatures without roasting them, thereby preserving the raw, whole nutrition of the sesame seeds.
Most grinding machines can only grind sesame seeds once they’ve been roasted and are crunchy and easy to grind. Our patented machine is the only machine that can grind nuts and sesame seeds 100% raw without roasting them.

Catrine R., San Francisco, California
I come from the Middle East, where I was brought up eating tahini, which is a very popular and famous food in my country, along with hummus. When I first tasted MAX Sesame Tahini, to me the taste was rather strange and unfamiliar. I was used to white, hulled tahini. Over time, I got used to it and really grew to love the taste. I find that my body feels satisfied even with a small amount, and it makes me feel full for several hours. I feel my body really needs the goodness of MAX Sesame Tahini! MAX Sesame Tahini is a perfect food for body and soul!
Sarah J., Houston, Texas
In Israel, tahini is a specialty and a tradition. Traditionally the sesame seeds were crushed into tahini by hand, with the help of a stick especially carved from an olive tree. I have a friend back in Israel who has a herd of sheep and produces his own olive ois. The people who live in this region, the Galilee, are very in touch with nature, and my friend, of course, has a great appreciation for natural products.
When I told him about Jerusalem Sesame Co., he said, “Wow! There must be a lot of people working very hard for this company. It takes a great deal of strength to make so much tahini by hand!” He was amazed to hear that the founder of Jerusalem Sesame Co. had invented a patented, unique machine that does all the grinding. He was doubly impressed when he learned that the machine grinds the sesame seeds cold, which conserves all their nutritional value. He said, “It’s amazing that so many people will be able to eat good quality tahini - it’s the best food in Israel!”
