Little Seeds, Big Wins

Little Seeds, Big Wins

Growing up, I never thought much about the nutrients in what I ate. Rather, my generation was raised to clean our plates and to be grateful for what we had. Today, raising a daughter of my own and surrounded by so many food choices, l find myself researching what is good or bad for her almost every day. 

When I look back though, I realize that the foods I was given as a child did indeed had incredible health benefits, and feel lucky and grateful for the choices my parents made for me. Tahini was on our breakfast table every day, along with molasses. I would dip my bread in the bowl and head off to school without giving it much thought. Today, the more I read about the science and nutritional facts of tahini, the more Datehini becomes a daily ritual for myself and my daughter. 

Datehini packs 100% certified organic medjool dates and sesame tahini into every jar. This simple pairing has no added sugars or artificial, GMO ingredients. Tahini is an especially good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help to reduce inflammation. It is also an accessible source of vitamin B6, vitamin E, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and calcium. Dates are a great source of potassium and are low in glycemic acid, while also being full of antioxidants including flavonoids, carotenoids, and phenolic acid.

In creating Datehini, our purpose is to provide healthy nutrition and a perfect energy source to families. Enjoy every bite!
