The market is witnessing rising demand for clean-label tahini products, like tahini butter, tahini paste, and tahini sauce, owing to which different players in the market have started manufacturing new products that suit the customers' preferences.

Also, the products did not contain any artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. The company also claimed that the products offered by them were non-GMO and vegan friendly.

Tahini is expected to become more popular worldwide due to the rising demand for nut/seed butter and spreads. The global tahini demand is driven by a marked rise in consumer preferences for tahini as an ingredient in many kinds of foods. As a result, the players in the market have been focused on launching products that cater to the shifting preferences of consumers. For instance, The Tahini Goddess, a tahini-based product brand, debuted in Miami in 2021. Miami's multiculturalism and love of cuisine and culture aided the product's growth.

Furthermore, although veganism is still a relatively new notion for many people, they are actively beginning to make choices in that direction.
