And this is where Coppa della Maga offers a play ground with its variety of flavours and several international Innovation Distinctions. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you our Sesame & Honey flavour!
There are evidences for the use of sesame since prehistoric times applied in rituals, as well as foods. It has been considered as ‘the seed of immortality’ and its use has been documented in many myths and legends and depicted in Egyptian tombs.
Nowadays, we all know sesame, mostly from savory dishes and some desserts, but not so often in ice cream. Still, this Coppa della Maga flavour is not too sweet and creates a very intriguing taste profile, that makes it suitable as an accompaniment even to some dishes like soups (instead of cream on top) or a cheese plate.
And like all other Coppa della Maga flavours, this one is also healthy: all natural and without white sugar (just stevia, maltitol and a bit of honey). The benefits of sesame have been well documented over the centuries used also in folk medicine:
- it is especially rich in copper, but also in manganese, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, and dietary fiber;
- its unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin have been shown to have a cholesterol-lowering effect;
- it is are rich in fiber and excellent source of plant protein.
Furthermore, we use unhulled sesame seeds with their edible and very healthy husk, which also gives the golden-brown colour of our ice cream.
Still, besides all these health benefits, we believe that the biggest advantage of our Sesame & Honey flavour is its delicious and intriguing taste. So, we urge you to give it a try and maybe you will have found your new favourite ice cream.
