SoCo - Seeds of Collaboration - started through an Israeli-Palestinian partnership. We believe economic collaboration is a way to build bridges. We support MEET (Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow), a non-profit in full partnership with MIT that connects young Israeli and Palestinian students using the common language of technology and entrepreneurship.
Every SoCo product sold helps fund a student startup at MEET, seeding more partnerships like ours.
Once open how long will it last in the refrigerator?
Tahini can last in the fridge for about 6 months after opening.
Is this organic?
SoCo tahini products are organic but still in the process of getting the USDA organic certification. For reference, sesame seeds are very drought and insect resistant, so basically if they have the optimal temperature and soil there's no need to really use anything. We buy 100% Humera sesame seeds from Ethiopia, so the seeds are grown in the most optimal conditions.
Does this come with oil on top like natural peanut butter?
Yes, there will be some natural oil on the top of the jar. Give it a good shake before using so the oils can mix in with the rest of the tahini. The oil is completely natural and isn't added to the tahini. You will see oil like this on 100% sesame seed tahini like SoCo's.
