Hazelnuts, walnuts, macadamia nuts – you probably already know all these types of nuts. But have you ever heard of tiger nuts? No? Then pay attention, because these pea-sized, brown nodules have a lot to offer! In Africa, where tiger nuts originated, they have been used for centuries as a popular food and remedy. In Egypt and the Middle East, too, they have long been said to have a healing effect. In the meantime, however, the "nuts" have also arrived in Europe and are known here under various names. Perhaps the name tiger nut means something to you. The small nodule is called tiger nut because of its special appearance: the tiger nut is striped like a tiger!

A nut for people allergic to nuts?!

You may be asking yourself why we've put “nuts” in in inverted commas? Just like almonds, cashews and Brazil nuts, tiger nuts are not really nuts, since they do not fall from the tree in their shells. In fact, the tiger nut plant is a sour grass that looks like ordinary grass and on whose roots pea-sized, brown nodules form - the tiger nuts. This gives them a decisive advantage, especially for those of us who suffer from allergies: even if you have a nut allergy, you can eat our tiger nuts without hesitation and use them in cooking and baking. 

Using shaved tiger nuts

The tiger nut is hardly edible raw, as it is very difficult to chew. That is why they are usually processed. In Spain, it is traditionally the main ingredient of the national drink Horchata de Chufa - a refreshing, vegetable tiger nut milk. We offer tiger nuts in dried and flaked form. Due to their light, natural sweetness, they are perfect as an ingredient in a tiger nut granola with cinnamon, as a nut alternative in your home-mixed muesli or to bake an almond and cherry cake. But the nut can be used for more than as a nut and cereal substitute in your baked goods. They also taste delicious as an alternative to peanuts in our coriander pesto, as a topping on your veggie bowl or as a crunchy batter for your vegan chicken nuggets.

delicious for breakfast or snacks

breakfast is never lacking, along with fruit. Sometimes, instead of eating snacks, for a snack I put some in vegetable milk and I'm good to go. Really good

Mold despite dry storage?

I always store my nuts, seeds, etc. airtight in large screw-top jars. After a few weeks, the tiger nuts smelled rancid, and something had settled on the inside of the glass, whether it was mold, I do not know exactly, in any case, I had to dispose of the tiger nuts - too bad. Since the cashew crushed could not convince taste, this was my first and at the same time last order at Koro.
