Once upon a time, far in the East, Ali Baba stood before a sealed cave & shouted:
"Open sesame!"... & as the sesame fruit opens up to let the seed spill out like gold,
so the cave opened up & all the riches of the world were laid out before him.

These treasures, symbols of the beneficial properties of sesame for man's health, were safeguarded in the traditions of all ancient civilizations. The Indians considered sesame to be "the king of seeds". The  Assyrian gods would drink sesame wine before heading out to battle. Chinese & Japanese used it in remedies, Hippocrates & Galene used it as a medicine & in weddings in ancient Greece they offered a mixture of tahini & honey, a kind of halva. But what is it that makes sesame & its products so unique that ancient civilizations would praise them? Why is halva the ideal food during fasting, when our body is detoxified & requires pure food with high energy & major dietary value?

According to Food Science, both sesame & its products are foods with high protein value, particularly rich in certain aminoacids which are lacking in other vegetal foodsA combination of pulse & tahini (ie. hummus) increases the value of the total protein. Sesame oil is particularly rich in unsaturated fatty acids & at the same time, sesame is rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, zinc & selenium, elements which are necessary for the good function of the human body.

Halva is a traditional Greek food, that is made of around 60% tahini & a mixture of sugars with the addition of nuts & flavours. Thus, it contains all the ingredients of tahini at an equivalent percentage & is a good source of inorganic elements. "Macedonian Halva with Chios Mastic" from "Haitoglou Bros" is a healthy & delicious snack that is ideally combined with cinnamon & lemon juice drops.
