Zaatar Sesame-Free Blend - Gluten-Free with Genuine Zaatar Herb (Origanum Syriacum-Hyssop)

Regular price $20.99 Sale

This blend as same as Tyme Foods' Classic Blend but without sesame seeds.  You can toast and add your own sesame seeds or use it without as you prefer.

The sesame-free blend only contains the zaatar herb, the sumac, and little sea salt (about 2.5% of the weight)  It contains no other ingredients or fillers.  It always a gluten-free and filler-free Zaatar mix.

The mainstay Zaatar herb ingredient is sustainably  grown from seeds of wild Zaatar, also called Syrian Oregano or hyssop with scientfic nameof Origanum syriacum, and is found on the hills of Southern Lebanon and is known to produce very flavorful herb because of its high essential oil content (about 1 gram per ounce, and 4 to 40 times multiple the oil content of Zaatar herbs from other regions.)  The sumac and sesame are also grown in Southern Lebanon.  The sumac is tested to be at least 50% from lemony than common Turkish sumac.

This is a classic hand-mixed Zaatar with genuine ingredients, as compared to low quality commercial and common grades, which often contain substitutes to mimic the flavor of authentic Syrian Oregano. Other brand for example, use fillers (often unknown!) to increase volume, citric acid or other artificial substitutes in place of the Sumac. Importantly, its rare to find mixes with genuine Syrian Oregano, and especially in generous portions.

We offer this Zaatar in a relatively generous seven ounce portion because we are confident you will enjoy it beyond a seasoning or spice.  Try it as a dip food by dunking fresh bread or vegetable into olive oil then the Zaatar - sprinkle it on salads, soups, and sandwiches - stir it into a yogurt - knead it into dough and pastry - and experiment with its many culinary possibilities.

Our Za'atar's are hand-mixed using ingredients from most recent season harvests. Flavors remain strong for about two years, if stored in airtight container in dry place away from heat or sunlight.

My previous choice when I first bought Zaatar was from Amazon. It was thyme and sesame seeds with a little sumac and salt.
REAL Zaatar herb (Origanum Syriacum) is way better. I chose the sesame-free version, and I add sesame seeds sometimes but not always. EXCELLENT product. And I use a tiny fraction of the amount of the other brand. It makes yours a much better value. Thanks!

very satisfied

Delicious Zaatar, excellent service, i highly recommend it,

Absolutely Delicious

So fresh tasting. Fragrant and some of the best that I have ever tasted. I will be buying more of their delicious blends. Thank you so much.

Really Good Zaatar!

I had been making the Zaatar herb and spice mixture using a personal blend of thyme, oregano, coriander, and marjoram (along with sumac, sesame seeds, salt, cumin, and Aleppo red pepper). Now I don't need the European green herbs since the genuine Syrian oregano is better than my herb mixture. It has a more intense flavor and aroma that I like better. I do like adding some cumin and Aleppo pepper to the mixture along with the other essential ingredients. I toast my own sesame seeds, for example, so they are especially fragrant. If you don't have Aleppo red pepper, just add some black pepper, but the Aleppo pepper is better. I'm glad I found the authentic Zaatar so I don't have to use a mixture of inauthentic herbs. Previously, I had sources for sumac and Aleppo pepper, but not for the true Zaatar herb. Try sprinkling the zaatar blend on potato salad and any thing you might make with olive oil, such as tuna salad, hummus, or a Greek salad.

Happy to obtain this after a long search!

I had been enjoying za'atar for yrs, but after being unable to eat sesame seeds (they stick in the gaps between my teeth!), I tried everything to remove the seeds. Using a sieve didn't work, some seeds still dropped through. But upon receiving this za'atar, I'm very happy. Besides no sesame seeds, this is good quality pure za'atar blend, without low quality additives which other blends include. Thank you, it was worth the wait. And thanks to all the people who produce the product. The high quality is because of their hard work!

Tasty but overpriced

I loved the Z’aatar but it’s really expensive too comparing to the portion.

I love zataar

It was very good but more bitter than I expected so if you could tone down some of the bitter flavor, it would be good.

Tyme Foods Zaatar/Zatar Classic Blend - Gluten-Free With Genuine Za'tar Herb (Origanum Syriacum - Hyssop) - Organic Seasoning

Super authentic!

I've been trying for years to find zaatar that isn't just a mix of miscellaneous dry herbs. This is the real deal and it's a far superior quality to what you'll get in your high-end super markets or spice shops.
