Abstract: Sesame paste (tahini), produced from one of the oldest known oilseed sesame is an important traditional food product widely consumed in Anatolia since ancient times. In this study, the changes in the physical, chemical and rheological characteristics of tahini with respect to different sesame environmental growth conditions are evaluated. Processes applied during tahini production cause structural changes and the environmental conditions and producing mixtures may also affect the tahini structure. These changes in tahini rheology affect the storage period and viscosity of tahini.
