Creamy tahini with a kick

Mighty Sesame Co., maker of all-natural, squeeze-and-serve tahini, recently debuted Mighty Sesame Harissa Tahini, the company’s first harissa-flavored variety. Made from Ethiopian sesame seeds and served in convenient shake-and-squeeze bottles, the new flavor contains a blend of 100% natural harissa spices to create an aromatic, roasted-chile pepper profile.

Tahini continues to trend globally, offering numerous ways to add a kick to dressings, dips, meat, and vegetables. Like all tahini products from Mighty Sesame, the harissa variety is ready to use with a shake and a squeeze. A good source of protein, each serving contains 260 mg of calcium in a blend that is organic, vegan, kosher, halal, and free of gluten.

Mighty Sesame Harissa Tahini can be found at retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.99 for a 10.9-ounce bottle.

Sugar-free snacks for babies and toddlers

Amara has expanded its line of pouched baby foods to include Organic Smoothie Melts, a convenient melt-in-the-mouth snack suitable  for babies and toddlers from eight monthsto four years of age.

Created from fruits and vegetables without added sugar, the snacks are available in plant-based and yogurt-based varieties, including Beets n’ Berries, Carrot Raspberry, and Mango Carrots. In addition to exciting developing palates, the melts are designed to encourage grasping and chewing skills, to complement the company’s baby blend line and create a smooth transition to spooned foods. The ready-to-eat snacks are packaged in a resealable bag and are shelf stable for up to two years.

Organic Smoothie Melts can be found online and at select grocery retailers for a suggested retail price of $4.99.

Truffle-enhanced pasta sauce

Luxury hot sauce brand TRUFF used its successful flavor profile to produce the company’s newest offering, TRUFF’s Pasta Sauce. Featuring ripe tomatoes, delicate herbs, black truffles, and red chili peppers, the sauce is designed to elevate favorite pizzas and pastas.

TRUFF was founded through a food and lifestyle Instagram blog called @sauce and was propelled into the social media spotlight with the release of its hot sauce in 2017. Speaking about the latest addition to the brand, Reno Yanes, vice president of sales at TRUFF, commented in a press release, “TRUFF’s Pasta Sauce is a delicious evolution of what we’ve done with our existing hot sauce portfolio. With the expansion, we will continue to put a premium, stylized spin on consumer categories that have been historically dominated by legacy brands.”

Available in two varieties, Pomodoro and a spicy Arrabbiata, TRUFF’s Pasta Sauce can be found at select Whole Foods stores for a suggested retail price of $12.99 for a 17-ounce jar.
