Unlike their deceptive name suggests, Tiger nuts are actually a small root vegetable that grows in the Mediterranean and Africa. They’re a traditional food in these areas and may even have been eaten as far back as the Stone Age! Tiger nut milk is also a traditional drink in Spain.
Cassandra Barns, Nutritionist says, “Tiger nuts are commonly found in the form of tiger nut flour – great alternative gluten-free, grain-free flour that can be used in baking or cooking and that’s suitable for all types of diets from vegan to Paleo to nut-free. Tiger nuts are high in fibre and contain calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium, amongst other valuable nutrients. They are great when it comes to supporting digestive system and weight loss.”
