What is Tigernut Flour?
A nut it is not, as the name may or may not imply. It is a small root vegetable that grows in Northern Africa and the Mediterranean.
It offers those allergic to nuts an option to enjoy a nutty flavor without the nut while providing a little extra protein when baking and cooking.
Tigernut flour is high in fiber, iron, potassium, protein, magnesium, zinc and vitamins E and C.
Tigernuts contain natural sugar, healthy fats and have a high level of resistant starch, which reaches the colon intact. {Resistant starch promotes prebiotic growth and supports a healthy immune and digestive track}.
It can also lower blood glucose levels and improves insulin sensitivity.
Tigernut flour is light and has a slightly sweet and nutty flavor, and it allows bakers to cut back on added sugar.
