SAMYTHOS is a new vertically integrated company producing homemade Greek superfoods.
We use the Evros variety of sesame seed and it grows exclusively on SAMYTHOS’ mountainous and organic farmland, which is within the Natura network region; one of the European Ecological Network of regions which are home to rare and threatened flora and fauna.
We harvest, sort, wash and dry the seeds by hand to minimize the risk of damaging the seed, which would compromise its quality.
We are the only company in this field with the aflatoxin, salmonella and gluten free labelling on all our packaging thanks to our strict controls at all stages of production.
The production of raw tahini is a rather difficult process. SAMYTHOS is the only company in Greece to develop the know-how to produce organic, uncooked tahini under 30ºC; cultivating organic sesame seeds of the Greek EVROS variety, a supreme variety at a global level.
We monitor the temperature throughout the production process in order to preserve the precious nutrients as temperatures above 40ºC are harmful.
No other product, using the same sesame seed variety and incorporates all of the above characteristics, exists in the Greek or the European market.
Its uniqueness has been recognised by leading chefs and dieticians.
It is the only tahini which retains 100% of the vitamins and trace elements from the raw sesame seed.
It is the only tahini from raw, uncooked sesame seeds on the Greek and European market, which we are in the process of patenting it.
It is the only tahini suitable for a RAW FOOD DIET.
Our customers tell us that the slightly bitter aftertaste of uncooked raw tahini combined with the intense freshness of the raw seed, creates a unique and unbeatable combination!
