Artisanal Halva. Tahini. Sesame.

HOW LONG DOES TAHINI LAST? DOES IT NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED?

Tahini will easily last about 2 years out of the fridge. But, we recommend refrigerating your jar once it is open. This will keep it fresh and slow down the separation of natural oil in the sesame seeds, which may start to occur after a few months. If you notice that your tahini has a layer of oil at the top, all you need to do is stir it back in.  

HOW LONG DOES HALVA LAST? DOES IT NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED?

We sell two types of halva. One is vegan and the other type contains a small amount of clarified butter. 

Our vegan halva is best stored in a cool environment, such as a pantry cupboard that doesn’t get too hot. You could also put it in the fridge if you prefer, but that's not necessary. If your fridge temperature is too cold, it can damage the texture of the halva.

On the other hand, our dairy halva is best kept in the fridge.

Both types will last approximately 6 months, but we hope you eat it all before then! You should never freeze halva as it will damage the delicate, flaky texture.

Your halva will come packed in a specially designed wrapping paper that is oil resistant and impermeable. You can leave the halva in this paper or transfer it into an airtight container.

ALLERGY INFORMATION

If you have a sesame allergy, unfortunately you will need to stay away from all of our products. Every Seed + Mill product contains sesame seeds.

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS DAIRY FREE, GLUTEN FREE, VEGAN?

All of our tahini is 100% vegan, gluten free and dairy free.

All of our halva is gluten free. But some of our halva flavors contain clarified butter. Please check the product pages on our website or ask our staff at the kiosk which flavors are vegan and which are not. 

Our tahini ice-cream contains goat milk so it isn’t vegan, but it is gluten free.

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS KOSHER?

Our halva and some of our tahini is made in Israel. It is certified Badatz kosher when made in Israel and when it arrives packaged in our store. 

At our store, we freshly grind some of our tahini and we also slice, wrap and weigh our halva at the store.  We have a local kosher certification from United Kosher Supervision.

If you order a whole halva cake and we don’t need to slice it, the Badatz kosher certification will apply.
