Organic Sliced Tiger Nuts
Organic sliced tiger nuts are a versatile superfood snack! Contrary to their name, tiger nuts are actually small root vegetables that our paleo ancestors consumed over two million years ago. Thinly sliced like wafers, these tiger nuts can be enjoyed as a topping for yogurt, cereals, salads and more. They have a slightly sweet nutty flavor that makes them a delicious add-in for baked goods. Also known as chufas, our sliced tiger nuts are Certified Organic, non-GMO, gluten-free and paleo-friendly.
Health Benefits of Tiger Nuts
Sliced tiger nuts can supercharge ordinary meals with a boost of nutrients! Tiger nuts are a good source of minerals like potassium and iron, and an excellent source of dietary fiber. The resistant starch found in tiger nuts acts similarly to soluble fiber in that it can improve blood glucose control after a meal. There is also preliminary research to suggest that diets high in resistant starch, like the kind found in tiger nuts, can reduce body weight and support weight loss goals. Studies have also examined the benefits of resistant starch on digestive health; resistant starch may help promote good bacteria in the gut (Advances in Nutrition, 2013).

At first I was a little skeptical because this was my first time eating these. They are hard at first then over time they get a little soft. You can even soaked them before eating I am told. Overall, they are good and has much fiber in them. Ordering a second batch soon.pamela, Hawthorne, CA
