Tigernuts: Healthy food.

As explained on the page "THE TIGERNUT", Tigernuts are small tubers. They are used in many different ways, but principally as the base for “Horchata”, an extremely popular drink on the Mediterranean coast.

Sweet taste

The sweet taste of Tigernuts also makes them a great snack which can be prepared by soaking the tuber in water for a few hours.

The main difference between the three kinds of Tigernuts we have in our permanent stock is their length. Although our customers use them for different purposes, we always guarantee a product of high quality.

SPECIAL CARE:

Tigernuts can be stocked before use without losing any of their unique properties for up to 2 years after purchase. It is important, however, that they be stored in a properly ventilated area (if possible, next to a window) and that in summertime and during hot spells, you remove the plastic that they are wrapped in during haulage. Finally, the tigernuts need to be fumigated every 6 weeks to protect them from any kind of damage that may be caused by bugs or insects.
