What are Tigernuts?
So, what are tigernuts if they aren't nuts?
Well, tigernuts are small root vegetables; nutrient dense and a great source of prebiotic fiber. They are naturally sweet and nutty in flavor.
Tigernut flour is simply made from finely ground tigernuts. It is naturally sweet – perfect for baking! Although, it can be used in savory dishes as well.
Tigernut Flour Nutritional Facts
Tigernut flour is mostly made up of carbohydrates. Depending on one’s carb tolerance, it can be a part of a ketogenic diet.
¼ cup of tigernut flour contains 14 grams of carbohydrate, and 5 grams of that is sugar; meaning it is naturally sweet. This is great for baking because you don’t need to add as much sugar to sweeten tigernut desserts.
This serving size also contains about 7 grams of fat and 1 gram of protein.
