Traditional tigernuts flour
Traditional tigernut flour
Our tigernut flour is characterised by its intense flavour, highly appreciated by consumers. The nutritional qualities of tigernut remain intact in this ‘classic’, thanks to the direct grinding of the carefully selected grain. In pastry-making, this flour (which is rich in natural sugars) can be used for making healthier pastry products that respond to the latest consumer trends.
In 2002, Tigernuts was the first company in the sector to commercialise tigernut flour, after identifying an opportunity in the market. Beyond the technical challenge (developing the mill for the grinding process was key), this innovation illustrates the brand’s vocation to discover and develop new applications for tigernuts. Nowadays our tigernut flour is a benchmark which meets the highest quality standards.
The ecological cultivation of our tigernuts
Increasing the production of ORGANIC tigernuts is one of our main commitments. On the one hand, it is a natural response to growing consumer demand, expressed through our customers. On the other hand, the transition to ecological farming is motivated by an ambition: to work better, to propose a better product, to be a better company.
Currently, our ORGANIC tigernut, certified by Control Union and regularly controlled, comes from Niger. It is free of toxic residues from pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and synthetic fertilisers used in conventional agriculture. Crop rotation is applied in our ORGANIC fields so as not to deplete the nutrients from the soil, improve biodiversity and maintain crop yields.
Currently our production varies between 25% and 35% of ecological product. Our goal is to exceed 50% by 2025.
