What are tiger nuts?
The Tigernut (cyperus sculentus lativum) or ‘Chufa’ as it is known in Spanish, is not actually a nut, but a small tuber. It was first discovered 4000 years ago and comes in several sizes. Tigernuts have long been recognised for their health benefits, as they are high in fibre, proteins, and natural sugars. The Tigernut is a tuber that has been used for centuries in an important part of Africa. The ancient Egyptians, one of the greatest civilizations of antiquity, already used this food for its magnificent healing and regenerative properties.
The traditional way of presenting Tigernuts has always been through the Tigernuts milk or horchata, a sweet, delicious and extremely popular drink in the Mediterranean coast.
Their other traditional use has been as a dried fruit or snack. The sweet taste of Tigernuts makes them a great snack.
