  • Sesame Seeds/Tahini

    Is this ok to eat on the PB? I imagine it's a really good source of fat.

    A good source of fat, but very high in Omega-6, so I would use it sparingly.

    In 1 Tbs:
    Total Omega-3 fatty acids 59.8mg
    Total Omega-6 fatty acids 3400mg

      Holy Crap - thanks Annika. Gotta start looking more closely at nutritiondata.com.

        I usually just keep it to the sesame seed oil. Yeah, it's high in omega-6s, but you need such a small amount for flavor that if you are doing everything else right, you don't need to worry.

          Thanks - my husband is Israeli so we eat quite a bit of hummus and tahini. I am willing to forego the hummus, but love a few tbsp of tahini on Israeli salad as a dressing. I thought for sure it was primal :-)!
