Product Information

 

Tigernuts grow well in sandy soil, the plant is dried first before harvesting. After the harvest, the nuts are washed with water to remove soil and roots. Then the tigernut is dried for about 3 months and after this period grounded into flour.

Due to its unique sweet taste, addition of sugar is not necessary. It’s a perfect alternative for partial or completely substitution for conventional flour if you want to make gluten free goods.

Tigernuts are a natural source of proteins, have a very high potassium value, are a source of phosphor and magnesium. They have a sweet nutty taste but are nut free, they contain a lot of fibre, are allergen free and contain no preservatives.
