Tigernuts are small tubers, not actual nuts – an important fact for those with allergies. The ancient Egyptians knew that the fruit of Tigernuts’ grass (Cyperus Esculentes) was highly beneficial, both as medicine and nutrition. Its root tubers are distinguished by an unusually high proportion of fibre and a delicious taste.
Enjoy as a snack or with healthy food! Usually eaten raw, mixed in muesli, yogurt, or as a nut substitute. Beneficial when mixed with baby and children’s food for healthy growth. Powdered form can be blended into morning smoothies. 2 tsp recommended daily for full advantage of benefits.
