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).

So tasty and perfect on my oatmeal.Robert, Lauderhill, FL
Only place I buy tiger nuts . Love them with your freeze dried berries and almond milk.Corinne, Port Orange, FL
These tiger nuts are fabulous topping oatmeal or cold cereal or “nice” cream sundaes. I should have bought 2x as much. Well, next order.Roberta, Lakeside, CA
I had never heard of these but was intrigued so I order both the sliced and whole peeled versions to try.. They are very tasty and satisfyingly chewy. The sliced are very thin more like shaved and I mix them with nuts, add them to yougurt or with cut up fruit. Soon they will be getting baked into cookies and brownies for a fiber boost.NANCY, Phoenix, AZ
