TIGERNUTS TRADERS, S.L. is a 100% Spanish Capital owned Company which was founded in 1997. Our main objective is to explore and develop the market and applications of the Tigernut (Spanish: Chufa; lat: Cyperus Esculentus), a tuber which has been traditionally cultivated in the area around Valencia (Spain). The almost unique use until this moment has been the preparation of "Horchata de Chufas", the delicious vegetable milk made from Tigernuts.
