Halva nutrition information

Halva nutrition information may be useful and important to everyone. So I decided to sum up the nutrition facts provided by various manufacturers of this Middle Eastern sweet. This calculation is based on more than 110 different items of tahini halva produced by Koska, Halvas Drapetsonas, Gulluoglu, Argoudelis, Haitoglou Bros, Oghab Halva, Kandylas, Al-Rabih, Sebahat, Attiki, Papayianni Bros, Mezap, Achva, Meletiadis, Helvacizade etc.

The average values (per 100 g):

Energy: 2250,21 kJ
Kcal: 537,17
Kcal from fat: 295,12
Carbohydrates: 45,76 g
– of which sugars: 37,25 g
Fat: 32,67 g
– saturated fat: 6,42 g
– monounsaturated fat: 13,33 g
– polyunsaturated fat: 12,07 g
Protein: 13,14 g
Dietary fiber: 5,09 g
Salt: 0,07 g
Calcium: 146,78 mg
Iron: 3,87 mg
Magnesium: 118,76 mg
Phosphorus: 366,71 mg
Zinc: 2,38 mg
Sodium: 40,70 mg

The fact is that tahini halva is rich in protein and amino acids, has little saturated (unhealthy) fat, and has no cholesterol. It’s plentiful in minerals and organic oils, which are necessary for your body. Anyway, keep in mind that halva should be used moderately due to its high sugar content. Up to 30 g per day should be enough, according to various sources.

Hopefully, that summarized halva nutrition information will help you enjoy this divine treat in a reasonable way.
