Tahini is made from sesame seeds. It’s a great source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, manganese, copper, calcium and protein.

Compared to peanut butter, tahini has higher levels of fiber and calcium and lower levels of sugar and saturated fats.

Carobs

Carobs are part of the pea family. The ripe, dried pods are often ground to carob powder. In Cyprus, carob syrup is known as Cyprus’s black gold, and is widely exported. It is used as a natural sweetener or as a medicine for sore throat and coughs. It contains three times more calcium than milk. It is also rich in iron, phosphorus, and natural fibers.
