So, what exactly is a tigernut?
Despite the name, tigernut is not a nut. It is a tuber that grows on one of the only edible sedges, Cyperus esculentus (Yellow Nut Grass). Also known as chufa, tigernut is used to make Horchata, a delicious and refreshing Spanish beverage.
Tigernut flour is very rich in prebiotic fiber, a resistant starch, making it great for gut health. If you follow a low-FODMAP diet, I recommend slowly building up when introducing tigernuts in your diet due to the resistant starch.
