Are you looking to change up your peanut butter? You can start with sesame butter. Sesame butter is rich in nutrients and flavor. It can be used to spice up any dish. It is also an excellent alternative for people with nut allergies and is naturally gluten-free.
Sesame Butter and tahini (sesame paste) are often mistaken. Sesame seeds must be slow-roasted at the lowest temperature to release their nuts, then ground with a millstone to make sesame butter. You can also use sesame seed butter as a peanut butter substitute.
This produces a creamy, smooth sesame oil, sometimes called "raw tahini". However, you will need to mix sesame butter, water, lemon juice, and salt with parsley and other spices to make tahini.
A tablespoon of sesame oil has 104 calories, 4g protein, 10g fat, 1.5g carbs, and 1.5g fiber. It is also cholesterol- and sugar-free. Healthy unsaturated fats, including omega-3 help to lower inflammation and lower the risk of a heart attack. Sesame butter also contains copper, iron, and zinc as well as calcium and phosphorous.
Sesame butter's combination of protein, fiber, and fat is the perfect trio to curb hunger. These nutrients help to maintain blood sugar levels, which helps you feel fuller for longer. Without the fear of a crash, stable blood sugar levels can help keep your energy levels high without causing a crash.
