Halvah, sometimes called Halva, Halwa, is an irresistible old-world sesame confection originating from Mediterranean countries in the 13th century.  Made from over 50% crushed sesame seeds called Tahini and just a few simple ingredients, our Halvah is mixed by hand in traditional copper bowls into a smooth layered texture that melts in your mouth. With a sweet-savory taste, our halvah is nutrient dense, and naturally gluten free.

Tahini has Mediterranean roots and dates back thousands of years. Derived from the Arabic word “Tahana”, which means to grind, it is a paste made of 100% sesame seeds.  For over 100 years, we’ve crafted ours using a specially selected blend of sesame seeds that are roasted to perfection and milled into a beautifully silky-smooth purée.  Our Tahini is plant based, naturally Gluten Free, and Non-GMO Project Verified.

For Joyva Tahini, we carefully select our special blend of sesame seeds, roast them to perfection and then mill them into a silky-smooth purée, which yields Joyva’s signature flavor profile: a little roasty, a little nutty, creamy and delicious in both savory and sweet dishes.

Tahini makes a wonderful addition to salads, soups, roasted vegetables, oatmeal, and even ice cream! Use Tahini in hummus, smoothies, dressings and dips for depth and creaminess. Top off your toast or desserts with the smooth nuttiness of Tahini.  You can check out our recipes HERE

No, Joyva tahini does not use raw sesame seeds.  We roast our seeds prior to grinding.
