Heralded as a super food, tiger nuts are a natural source of pre-biotics, for the digestive system, promoting the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the intestines.

They're packed full of fibre and other nutrients, being rich in Vitamin C, Iron, Zinc, Copper, Potassium, and Magnesium, that can boost metabolism and help stave off infection.

They also contain high levels of vitamin E, which is known to slow down the ageing of the body cells. It also supports the elasticity of the skin and reduces skin wrinkles.

 Tiger nuts also contain low density lipoprotein-cholesterolor, a type of starch which resists digestion. This helps keep us feeling fuller for longer, and also reduces the amount of calories we absorb from the food. Plus, they are low in calories and fats, thus they can help as an aid to weight loss, and help to satisfy hunger.

So, Tiger Nuts have all the nutrients and energy benefits of nuts, but being gluten and nut free, they do not adversely affect allergies.

An easy to grow grass they will tolerate many adverse soil conditions including periods of drought and flooding and survive soil temperatures around −5 °C (23 °F).

However, they are best contained in a tub due to a very vigorous habit. The rhizomes produce masses of intently sweet tubers that are bigger than peanuts, and taste of almonds and coconut. They can be eaten straight out of the ground, once washed of course!

Cultivated for over 4,000 years and much favoured by the Egyptians, ‘Tiger Nuts’ as they are known, are meeting the growing demand for healthy snacks that can easily be grown in a container at home.

Once popular in the 50ies era of post war rationing, they were seen as a treat for children, bought at the local sweet shop.
