This dish is delicious and delectable. Pure enjoyment in each and every bite. This scrumptious desert snack treat is as clean as a whistle. Ancients myths proclaim the healing virtue of sesame with its unique source of Vitamin T. Vitamin T, or torulitine, has been identified in egg yolks and sesame seeds. Halva originates from the Middle East and Asia.

Sesame is thought by some to improve memory and concentration, and to help strengthen red blood cells. Sesame seeds may be the oldest condiment known to man. Raw honey is a friend to all but much of its antibiotic natural healing factor is lost through cooking. Cacao has 135 times more potassium than sodium and is a good source of folate, niacin, lutein, calcium and magnesium. Walnuts contain melatonin, omega-3 fatty acids and a rich source of antioxidants. Pumpkin seeds also contain omega-3 fatty acids. They are a great source of zinc, magnesium and potassium.
