  Pasteli or sesame bar or sesame crunch, is a sweet food product prepared from sesame and honey. Honey and sesame were the main ingredients of the nutritional casualties of the ancient Greeks, who had invented different food combinations, in order to flourish their dishes. The roots of pasteli report through the Ancient Times are considered to start from Homer’s Iliad. It was first reported by Homer in the Iliad and called “intrion”, which meant placenta with honey and sesame, which the Greeks used to eat in order to with stand the hardships of the war. Herodotus, who lived in the 5th century B.C., was also referred to pasteli [1,2].
