Ancient tahini pairs with California medjool dates like a mom bonds with her children. Naturally. Endurance triathlete Sezin Kutlu made Datehini for her daughter Alisa, the pickiest of eaters. Sweet and savory, Datehini powers the whole family - whether mothers, active kids to seniors or marathon runners to bikers - with every swirl of healthy nutrition.
No sugar or vice, just all things nice
Made from only two ingredients, Datehini packs 100% certified organic energy into every date and sesame. The simple pairing of sesame tahini and medjool dates has no added sugars or artificial, GMO ingredients. The extras come standard. Sesame seeds are rich in vitamin B6, calcium, omega 3 fatty acids and essential minerals like magnesium, potassium, and iron. Dates bring antioxidants, flavonoids, carotenoids, and phenolic acid into the mix.
Datehini? You barely know me!
A Spoonful of Sepoli
"One spoon a day" of tahini and fruit spread is a morning ritual in the Mediterranean diet that inspired the creation of Sepoli. Datehini brings the two together in one spoonful to enrich the modern American diet with the ancient tradition of simple nourishment. Have it straight from the jar, spoon by spoon, knowing only dates and sesame are powering you daily.
Dip it, add it, spread it, bake it
Like it as you like it. Dip in with apple slices, banana chips, celery sticks, sweet potato crisps, pretzels, and crackers. Add it in shakes, smoothies, oatmeal, acai bowls, energy balls and no-bake bars. Spread it over toast, crepes, bagels, muffins, rice cakes, sweet potato skins, hard cheese, and crackers. Bake it in cookies, bread, and pancakes.
Not just a pretty taste
Ayfer GoekMom to Ela
"My daughter loves Datehini. That's half the battle of finding a quick snack the family loves without having the guilt of relying on chocolate spreads or nut butters. Ela likes it in a little cup to dip in vegetable sticks or pretzels. I also replaced peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with Datehini sandwiches. It's so easy for the lunch box. Even my husband puts it on his turkey sandwiches and cheese plates."

"I'm always striving to find just the right balance. Balance of flavors, balance of textures, and the balance of a delicious experience in the moment with the nutritious ingredients of a healthy lifestyle. This ancient Mediterranean combination blends the richness and strong flavors of sesame paste with the unctuously sweet dates to find that perfect balance. Working in a non-stop environment as chefs, we tend to neglect our own diets for whatever is convenient. I still reach for whatever is convenient, but with Datehini I don't have to compromise on that balance for myself."

"I follow a strict diet that supports the intensity of my training without loading my body with highly processed glucose in pre-packaged energy products. I need to keep focused while building strength, increasing endurance, and always striving to be faster. Datehini does that for me. Especially cinnamon Datehini! I have it over toast for breakfast, by the spoonful pre-workout, and as a reward during workout recovery."
TarynPlant-based endurance athlete
"As a plant-based endurance athlete training multiple hours per day swimming, biking, running, and lifting, incorporating proper fueling in between each workout is so important. Running ten miles is always challenging, so I was intrigued when I learned about Datehini. The combination of dates and tahini sounded delicious (and definitely nutritious). When my first jar arrived I knew it would exceed my expectations, and with the very first taste, it totally did! I now use Datehini as a spread on toast after swimming, before bike rides, and afternoon runs, as well as add it as a delectable drizzle over roasted parsnips and sweet potatoes for dinner."

"I recommend Datehini as a rich source of healthy fats, protein, fiber and antioxidants
without the added sugars found in most packaged foods. Beyond the vitamins and
minerals, which include B6, zinc, copper, and selenium, among many others, I suggest Datehini for its calcium to promote bone health and natural energy that
supports brain development. Personally, my family has one to two spoonsful daily
as an organic supplement."
