Question on our Product

What is tahini?

Tahini, also called tahina or tahine is THE Middle Eastern staple food. The raw product is made with ground sesame seed that turn into a paste and it's naturally gluten-free. Tahini's taste is naturally slightly bitter, but when adding lemon juice, water and salt, as is the traditional way, the bitterness is removed, and you end up with a delicious, creamy sauce that tastes a bit like sour cream or yoghurt but is completely plant-based. By adding more or less water you can change the consistency from dressing to sauce or even as a delicious bread spread. Use tahini like you would normally use dairy products.

Does tahini have health benefits?

Tahini is a superfood and does indeed have a whole range of health benefits. It is a great source of non-dairy vegan calcium - in our opinion, the best! So it's good for your bone health. And it's also high in magnesium and iron, which makes it a great addition to a vegan diet. Tahini also has plenty of good fats that support brain function, heart health, and feeling fuller for longer. The fats in tahini boost the absorption of fat-soluble anti-ageing vitamins (vitamin A and vitamin E). It also contains zinc, a building block of the collagen to keep your skin elastic and supple. Not bad!

Are your dressings made in the UK?

Yes! We pride ourselves in manufacturing our dressings in the UK. Even the tahini paste we use in our delicious dressings is freshly ground from sesame seeds in England.

Why tahini dressings?

We wanted to make the amazing properties of tahini accessible to more people by coming up with vegan dressings that are plan-based, delicious, versatile and easy to use.

Are your dressings keto?

Yes, our dressings are keto and contain less than 2g of carbohydrates per 30g serving.

Are your dressings gluten-free?

All the ingredients that go into our dressings are gluten-free. We have yet to make them undergo tests to certify they are gluten-free for legal reasons and we are in the process of doing it.

Do your dressings contain protein?

Yes! Dressini is one of the few dressings that is nutritious and contain protein, so you won't just be eating empty calories. Check the product page of each dressing for full nutrition info.

Who is behind Dressini?

Dressini is the brainchild of vegan blogger Philipp Ertl. For years now he developed super easy and accessible vegan recipes and shares them on his popular blog exceedinglyvegan.com. You may have also seen him cooking on Veganuary's channel. Together with his business partners and advisors Stephanie, Chris and his brother Georg they founded Dressini tahini dressings. We got successfully founded on Kickstarter and from then on kept improving and perfecting our amazing products and are now available online and at selected retailers like Whole Foods Market, GreenBay and more.

Are your dressings made from natural ingredients?

Yes, our ingredients are all natural in theory. We only use clean-deck ingredients that are minimally processed and don't contain E numbers or other nasties. However, legally we can't call them natural ingredients because we added rapeseed oil for smoothness and taste, which is technically processed to get to the oil (even virgin olive oil wouldn't qualify). Other companies often bend the rules when it comes to marketing their products, but we prefer to go by the book, so officially we can't call our ingredients 'all natural'.

What else can I use Dressini for?

The beauty of our dressings is that they are so versatile. You can enjoy them not only in salads (mixed and potato salads) but also as dips or sauce. They work really well over roasted vegetables, with BBQs, as vegan mayonnaise replacement and even to refine soups (like you would with sour cream, add a splash to your soup before serving). So good!

Are your dressings environmentally friendly?

Environmental issues are very important to us. That's why our founder Philipp launched his vegan blog exceedinglyvegan.com. We try to reduce our C02 footprint as much as possible by producing in the UK. We only fill our dressings into glass bottles, sealed by metal caps and stick-on paper labels in order not to create any plastic waste. Our dressings are packed in cardboard boxes and don't use plastic wraps either. Even when shipping we encouraged our warehouse to pack the box with repurposed cardboard packing material instead of bubble wrap. We are always trying to improve our operations and have therefore also removed a plastic tamper seal that was used in our initial production runs and found ways to produce our dressings without it.

There is some oil separation at the bottom, is that normal?

Yes, that's totally normal. Often companies use ingredients like Xantham gum to decrease separation. We decided against it to keep our product as natural as possible. This means some separation is totally normal and you may have to shake the dressings from time to time before use.

Will the colour stay the same?

Because we don't use any colourings in our dressings the vibrancy of some of the dressings can reduce over time. This is nothing to worry about, just a cosmetic change and you can keep enjoying your tahini dressings.
