Tahini and Silan Date Syrup are incredibly nutritious! They are especially great for those who are pregnant or postnatal moms.
Prenatal And Postnatal Tahini Nutrition
Soom Tahini is a wonderful plant-based and dairy-free source of protein, calcium, and iron. In addition, tahini is a source of vitamins and minerals that are essential to pre- and postnatal health. Tahini boasts copper, magnesium, phosphorus, thiamine, and manganese, which are all important nutrients for a baby’s proper development.
Tahini supports a healthy immune system because it contains zinc, iron, copper, and selenium. Tahini is a good source of healthy fats including mono- and polyunsaturated fats and omega-6 fatty acids, which are required for proper cell and nervous system health, in addition to a properly functioning immune system.
These healthy fats are vital in the prenatal period as they lead to the proper development of the milk glands, placenta, and uterus. Sesame seeds, the only ingredient in Soom Premium and Organic Tahini, contain B vitamins, zinc, and amino acids, all of which contribute to glowing skin and healthy hair.
Prenatal And Postnatal Silan Nutrition
Silan Date Syrup contains essential minerals including magnesium, copper, and manganese, which are all important nutrients for prenatal health. In particular, magnesium helps with the development of a baby’s bones and teeth.
Dates, the only ingredient in Soom Silan, provide a burst of energy without altering blood sugar levels. Soom Silan is lower on the Glycemic Index than maple syrup, honey, and molasses, making it a better sweetener alternative for those who may incur gestational diabetes. (Please check with your doctor before enjoying if you have any concerns over sugar consumption during pregnancy.) They’re also a good source of folic acid, which decreases the chance of brain and spinal cord-related birth defects.
Dates contain vitamin A, which is essential to vision; vitamin C, which helps promote skin elasticity, and vitamin D, which assists with bone strength and protecting one’s immune system.
