Tigernuts Products

Tigernuts are one of the hottest superfoods in the market. They come with numerous health benefits. Inspite of the name they are not nuts, but are root tubers of a grass plant (Cyperus esculentus lativum) that has been cultivated for millennia around the world. They are grown and eaten in many parts of sub-Saharan Africa, and the ancient Egyptians and Native Americans are reported to have grown and enjoyed them. In Nigeria, Spain and many parts of the world they are the traditional ingredient used in making the power-enhancing and fertility boosting Tigernut Milk Drink (called Kunun Aya in Hausa and Horchata de chufa in Spanish).

Tigernuts taste like a combination of creamy coconut and almonds, and are named after their tiger-striped exterior.
