I have been living off of hummus for a few weeks now and I ordered some various tahinis (pureed' sesame seed), like sesame seed peanut butter..and one of them was Eden nuts' organic/chemical free Gucci went NUTS when she smelled it and I held out the spoon for her to lick it and she grabbed it and RAN off to devour it. That is SOOO unlike her, she flips her nose up at everything that a dog *should* like ..I'm talking about human foods/snacks, too.
I tried googling if sesame is okay for dogs and there really is nothing out there about it, does anyone have any experience feeding sesame?
If its okay, I may incorporate it into her diet because tahini is LOADED with good vitamins and minerals and I always prefer her to get those naturally through food over supplements.
What is really interesting to me......as I have changed my diet recently to gluten free/organic/ no chemicals/preservatives, etc. She is loving those type of foods. I honestly think she smells the bad crap and chemicals in our processed foods. I guess that should tell me something if she won't eat it then there is something bad in it, lol
Kara, I haven't heard anything about sesame seed. Must be tasty if she went so crazy for it. I'll watch this to see other input.
here's what Sabine says in a letter where I asked her about it...
"Yes, it's great as a treat, for example in a Kong!
IMO it's preferable to peanut butter"
Molly loves peanut butter , I get her the unsweatened ,unsalted though. Glad you brought this up. I might just get us some.
I am going to try this new treat. Phoebe gets so finicky when she is pregnant that I just about rip my hair out trying to get food into her. Forget the yogurt--at least for now. She won't have any of it!
I'm thrilled she likes it! Here are some of the benefits:
Sesame Seeds - The Facts
Sesame seeds are bursting with nutrients that are excellent for the health of your digestive and cardiovascular systems (amongst others). One hundred grams of Total Sesame contains:
11-13 times the amount of calcium that a proportionate serving of cheese contains
Approximately four times the amount of calcium of milk
Calcium is essential for the structure of our bones and teeth, enzyme secretion, and muscle contraction. Research also suggests that it prevents colon cancer.
Sesame seeds are naturally rich in the following vitamins, nutrients, and minerals:
Essential for metabolizing carbohydrates in the body
Boosts the immune system
1/4 cup of sesame seeds contain 74% of the recommended daily intake of copper.
Necessary for developing and maintaining many vital organs in the body, including your heart and brain

Made with care
This is the one I bought and it is tasty:
Not all tahini is equal. I've tasted some that are...:puke:, Like the Joyva kind taste chemically to me. I ordered a few different brands that should come in this week..I'll let you know how they are :) They are all organic.
At any rate, Its good for me...and just a bonus that its nutritious for them.
I was in the grocery the other day and every label has sugar, or so many chemicals it is irritating.. I did find Black Beans without all the additives and Chick Peas. But it was difficult to find canned tomatos without added sugar, etc...then I went to a friend's house who is on weight watchers and she was cooking some greens and she put a teaspoon of sugar in it. I remember my Mother doing that, sugar in things makes good country cooking :-} But if you are trying to stay off the sugar, watchout!!!
Lily and I love Tahini! Right now we are working our way through a jar of Artisana Raw Organic, but normally I buy this roasted brand, I forget the name but its cheaper and has a blue screw on cap. Its amazing on rice cakes with a little honey or with bananas and some dark chocolate shaved on top with a rasp. yum yum!
Our in home trainer suggested "alternative" butters rather than using peanut butter....such as almond, sesame/tahini and even suggested a very tiny amount to be used as a training tool/positive reinforcer. Tahini is a staple in the middle East and also Greece.
I make my own hummus from scratch and it is very yummy :)
