Greek traditional energy bar with sesame seeds, honey, Aegina pistachio nuts and cinnamon.

Sesame seeds and honey were the main ingredients of a mixture that was created by the ancient Greeks to improve their well-being. This mixture in modern Greek is referred to as “pasteli”. Pasteli originated in Greece over 6,000 years ago.  The first pasteli consisted of only two ingredients, sesame seeds and honey. So simple! But it worked so well. 

Greek historian Herodotus lists pasteli as "both a delicacy and a benefit to somebody’s health".

It is referenced in Homer’s Iliad that the ancient Greeks used to eat this simple honey and sesame mixture to gain energy before a battle and withstand the physical demands of the war. A combination of honey and sesame was an important fuel for athletes during the original Olympic Games in 700 BC. This mixture is so old, that without doubt it can be called “The Original Energy Bar”. 

There is no question about the nutritional values of honey and sesame seeds. Sesame seeds are a rich source of minerals including calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, and contain healthy fats. Honey is fuelled with antioxidants and has been used as a natural preservative and sweetener for the last 8000 years. It is also an excellent source of energy. The famous Greek doctor Hippocrates would prescribe honey to fight fatigue!

Melichio Sesame Bar is based on a simple and traditional recipe that goes back to the first ascetic monks of the Holy Makariotissa Monastery who combined sesame seeds and honey to make a nutritious and healthy sweet that granted them longevity. Today, the finest handmade pasteli, made by Patrikon with respect to tradition, uses only the purest honey from Mount Helicon mixed with the highest quality wholesome sesame seeds and cinnamon known for its therapeutic properties.
