What are Tiger nuts ?
Tiger nuts, one of the hottest super foods in the market. These wrinkled, marble-sized small, tuberous rhizomes of a sedge grass (cyperus esculentus lativum) that’s been cultivated for millennia around the world. With a flavor reminiscent of both coconut and almond, they earn their name from a tiger-striped exterior. They can be eaten freshly dug out of the ground, or cooked–roasted, boiled, or juiced. Packaged tiger nuts have been dried to make them shelf-stable; they’re also sold as tiger nut flour, and as a tiger nut milk. All come with numerous health benefits. Tiger nuts have been around for 4000 years they are a vital component of our ancestors’ diets—that plus the fact that the tiny tubers are high in fiber, low in calories and fat, and non-GMO, making them an attractive ingredient for low-carb and paleo dieters alike.
WHAT ARE THE ACTUAL HEALTH BENEFITS OF TIGER NUTS?
For starters, tiger nuts are super-high in resistant starch fiber, which has been getting a lot of buzz for its weight loss benefits. Resistant starch passes through the stomach and small intestine without being digested, and may even help you lose weight by reducing blood sugar spikes and keeping you fuller longer than other foods with the same number of calories, she says. It also benefits your gut by acting as a prebiotic, stimulating the growth of good bacteria in the digestive tract.
One kilogram, raw tiger nuts, contains 120 calories, 10g of fiber (about 40% of your daily value), 9g of naturally occurring sugars, tons of vitamins and minerals such as magnesium and iron, and 7g of fat, most of which is oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that research shows can help reduce appetite and promote weight loss. For some context, a serving of almonds—about 23 nuts—has 163 calories and about a third of the filling fiber of tiger nuts.
