Ecoideas Organic Whole Tigernuts
454 g
Tigernuts are small tubers, not actual nuts – an important fact for those with allergies. The ancient Egyptians knew that the fruit of Tigernuts’ grass (Cyperus Esculentes) was highly beneficial, both as medicine and nutrition. Its root tubers are distinguished by an unusually high proportion of fibre and a delicious taste.

Enjoy as a snack or with healthy food! Usually eaten raw, mixed in muesli, yogurt, or as a nut substitute. Beneficial when mixed with baby and children’s food for healthy growth. Powdered form can be blended into morning smoothies. 2 tsp recommended daily for full advantage of benefits.

Linda: a few months ago

Very satisfying and healthy snack with a great chew factor!

Sandra: a few months ago

I have been introducing tiger nuts to friends & family and they are a hit! If you like the taste of hazelnuts and coconut, you will enjoy them soaked or right out of the bag. I will be buying them regularly.

Charles: about a year ago

I bought a bag of tiger nuts to try because I was intrigued by their nutritional benefits. I was not disappointed. They make a tasty snack and are very satisfying. A little goes a long way. They are kind of tough out of the bag so I soak them overnight in water before eating them. I also grind them and add them to my daily oatmeal and yogurt. Delicious!

Different for sure, tasty fresh right out of the bag. Tasted like hazelnuts, and creamy, thou hard to swallow. The pulp got stuck in our throats. So we soaked them in water for two days,. Then they were super crunchy, tasted like coconut and were way easier to swallow. Knowing how healthy they are for a snack makes them a for sure in the future. Well worth the bucks for a good flavour and a healthy snack. The fibre is just a bonus. They are better soaked,. Will buy again..

Preeya: about a year ago

Better value for your money than other brands. Helps curb cravings for nuts.

Katerina: about a year ago

I find them far too hard and they stick in your throat. Perhaps I will try soaking them but would probably not buy again.

Karen: more than a year ago

I love these, they are chewy, but sweet and earthy. They are not for everyone, but if they are for you, considering how healthy they are for your body, it is a great find.

Sue: more than a year ago

I find these quite chewy. I did soak them and they were much better. The taste is quite pleasant.

Heather: more than a year ago

I tried this product because of the vitamins and minerals and high fibre. It was recommended by the EARTH DIET book. I find the taste kind of walnutty and very they are chewy. A nice evening or late afternoon snack because they are filling because of the fibre and chewy. They are NOT NUTS and we can have them in our nut allergy home.

Sue: more than a year ago

I thought I would try these on a whim since I understand they are a really healthy snack. They are a bit woody/chewy so I'm going to soak them as another reviewer suggested.
