WHAT THE .... ARE TIGER NUTS?
Where do Tiger Nuts come from?
Well here's the thing, Tiger Nuts are actually not nuts, they are a tuber that grows below the ground's surface. They have all of the nutrients and energy benefits of nuts, but do not adversely affect allergies.
Tiger nuts grow in the ground much like a carrot or potato, and then they are cleaned and dried in the warm Mediterranean sun. View a video below to see how they are grown and harvested by our growers in Spain. They are shrink wrapped airtight and shipped to our organic facilities in New York, packed and then shipped to you.
Tiger Nuts are one of the world's healthiest snack foods, and having been around for thousands of years, are nature’s best kept secret. Not only nutritionally beneficial, they also taste great, and as a bonus help curb your appetite.
What's the difference between our Premium Organic and Supreme Peeled Tiger Nuts?
The difference between Premium Organic and Supreme Peeled Tiger Nuts is that we have simply removed the outer skin of the Premium Organic Tiger Nuts, using an all natural process, and the net result is our Supreme Peeled Tiger Nuts. They both have the same nutritional values, except for fiber, the original Premium Organic has a huge 33% fiber and Supreme Peeled has an amazing 23%. And in all honesty, while you can eat both varieties right out of the bag, our Supreme Peeled Tiger Nuts are a little easier to chew. By the way, if you find the Premium Organic a little tough to chew, just soak them in a bowl of water for 36 hours and they will plump up and become crunchy!
