Tigernuts

Certified Organic Tigernuts/Aya/Aki Awusa/Ofio/Atadwe/Chufa       

Our Tigernuts delivers the most intense, sweet taste ever! They are organic certified and of course Non-GMO.

Tigernuts are a healthy gluten free and paleo friendly snack full of Mother Nature’s wholesome goodness. If this wasn’t enough, they can even act as an appetite suppressant to aid in weight loss.

Tigernuts are NOT nuts, but nutrient-dense root vegetable tubers named after their striped appearance.  They are naturally high in protein, prebiotic fibre, omega 6, potassium, vitamin E and Iron.

A patented and entirely mechanical process removed the outer coating, delivering the most intense, sweet taste with health-giving vitamins and nutrients.

Tigernuts have been a major food crop cultivated in Ancient Egypt, northern Nigeria and other countries in sub-Saharan Africa, India, the Middle East, and Southern European countries like Spain.

They are a popular snack in many West African countries where it is widely enjoyed freshly harvested and bought from markets, on street corners, and in grocery stores.

Tiger Nuts are one of nature’s first superfoods as they were what our ancestors used to eat thousands of years ago. Moreover, according to research from Oxford University they comprised up to 80% of our Paleo ancestors’ diet around 2 million years ago. Now Tigernuts have made great a comeback as one of the healthiest foodstuffs on the market.

Should you find dried Tigernuts too tough or chewy, please soak them in water for a few hours to re-hydrate and soften them. This way makes them perfect for making your own home-made dairy-free Tigernut milk!
