Health Benefits of Tiger Nut Flour
Tiger nut flour offers all the rich nutritional benefits of the tiger nut. Although tiger nuts are a good source of many nutrients, including protein, potassium and iron, they are better known for being one of the best dietary sources of resistant starch. A prebiotic fiber that behaves similarly to soluble fiber, resistant starch helps regulate blood sugar levels so it is especially beneficial to people with diabetes. It can also help reduce body weight and provide a sense of fullness to prevent overeating. As a prebiotic fiber, resistant starch helps fuel good bacteria in the gut, which supports digestive health (Advances in Nutrition, 2013).
