Made solely of sesame seeds: no preservatives, additives, or food coloring. At the same time, the product has a shelf life of an entire year, no refrigeration required. Each step in our chemical-free processing method is designed in a way that minimizes the amount of heat and friction underwent by the sesame seeds. The seeds are peeled, roasted, and cooled slowly, under the meticulous watch of our food engineers at each stage. Using a gentle salt-water bath rather than machine arms to separate husk from seed is just one example of the innovative factory design that preserves the aroma and sweetness of the seed, making for an unmistakably traditional, homemade taste.
