Tahini is probably the most characteristic dip of the Levant, the Mediterranean region our Island lies in. Whole sesame seeds are ground raw and nothing else is added. Delicious and packed with protein, fibre and healthy fats, and other nutrients.
Tahini has been produced in Cyprus for more than 2500 years. At Mellona we continue this tradition by offering it in the most pure and unprocessed form.
Tahini is the main ingredient for other Mediterranean dips too, such as hummus and baba ghanoush. Use it as a dip to accompany your meal, as a dip for fresh vegetables, in salad dressings or as a spread on a toast or cracker.
About The Producer
On their blossoming farm on the south coast of Cyprus, Mellona crafts its totally natural products. Surrounded by citrus, olive groves and vineyards, the unique climate and soil characteristics of this land means Mellona is able to produce agricultural products of exceptional quality.
They believe that nature is the perfect food producer. Food, as made by nature, may not have the best shape or the most tempting colour or may not be able to keep for a long time. It surely has though the best flavour and it is perfect for its purpose: to give the body the nutrients it needs in the most effective way.
They also know that nature is nature-friendly. Keeping the production process as natural as possible results in a lower impact on the environment. So natural, organic, raw foods are not only good for you, but also for the planet.
Mellona strongly believe in the notable Mediterranean diet. For them, it’s not just a vague idea but a real guide for developing their products and recipes. In every Mellona jar or bottle, you will find food as close to what nature produced as possible. You’ll also find a bit of sun and Mediterranean aura.
