Tiger Nut Flour, 500g (Local Village Foods)


Tiger Nut flour is made from the tuber of the chufa sedge, also known as nut grass, tiger nut sedge, edible galingale, water grass or earth almond. This plant is native to North Africa, USA, Mexico, parts of South America and the Middle East. Although it is not a real nut, tiger nut is considered a superfood. It is rich in Calcium, Phosphorus, Sodium, Potassium, Iron and Zinc, vitamins C and E and Folic acid, as well as unsaturated fats and proteins. It is low in carbohydrates, which makes it ideal for Paleo and Ketogenic diets, and is high in fiber and antioxidants. Tiger nut flour is  gluten free, nut free and grain free.
