proteins, and natural sugars. The ancient Egyptians, one of the greatest civilizations of antiquity, already used this food for its magnificent healing and regenerative properties. Evidence of how valuable Tigernuts were for the Egyptians is given by the fact that Tigernuts were found in some sarcophagi, where it is known that the Egyptians were buried with their most valuable possessions.
The Tigernut has a rough, rounded shape and a certain earth-like colour, since it is buried there until it is removed for consumption. The plant has characteristic intense green leafs that can be seen very often in some fields of African countries and in some villages in the coastal Valencia.
The traditional way of presenting Tigernuts has always been through the Tigernuts milk or horchata, a sweet, delicious and extremely popular drink in the Mediterranean coast.
Their other traditional use has been as a dried fruit or snack. The sweet taste of Tigernuts makes them a great snack.
Although they are hard as a result of being dried after harvesting, if soaked in water for about 4 hours they are rehydrated and become soft and tasty again. Ready to enjoy them anywhere! Our company can offer you Tigernuts any time of the year in different shapes and sizes suitable for a use or another.
