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).

Best Tiger nut flour I have purchased. Has a wonderful flavor,Greg, Tremont, IL
I have tried Gemini the best known brand that is most recomended and Nuts.com brand. This is my favorite. The texture is better for baking. The Gemini brand TNut was more damp and baked moer cakey. I have been experimenting using arrowroot starch in combination with TNut flour ahich has resulted in the best texture in cookies and even a yeast bread. The flavor was delicious in my bread. I made Old Fashioned Peanut butter cookies substituting half and half Tnut and arrowroot starch to replace white flour. They were delicious. I used xylitol that I added some molasses too for a brown sugar xylitol and added some allulose sweetener for the white sugar (I could have added .ore xylitol) basicallyned to taste basically following the recipe. I cant stand the modern recilpe that everyone raves about that just calls for sugar and peanut butter I find it disgustingly sweet. I wanted a low carb cookie that had the texture of a cookie made with flour. Also I suggest for best results that you put tigernut tbrough a blender or someething to grind it finer.Robynn, South Royalton, VT
