"Tiger what?" - You may say looking at me with big eyes. The tiny little balls that look like the unpeeled version of macadamia nuts are still relatively unknown throughout Europe. BUT their popularity growth is impressive. For good reason.
Not only is the delicious little nut (that isn't a nut really) a perfect natural sweetener, it is also loaded with fibre, iron potassium and more. Read on to learn more about the delicious new (no nut) hero on the superfood isle.
Tiger nuts' popularity has grown massively over the past years. They are available in nearly all organic stores in Germany and even the German mainstream drugstores, such as DM & Rossmann, list them in their portfolio. You can either purchase tiger nuts as "whole nuts" or ground into flour. You decided. I would make a decision based on what you want to do with the nuts.
I personally love to roast them and add them as a crunchy topping onto basically everything - salads, veggie stews, superfood breakfast bowls and so on. Regarding shopping recommendations: Purchase offline if you have a cool organic store nearby that has tiger nuts in its portfolio. If that's not the case, I love to recommend Sunday Natural. Aside from their incredible branding, they offer amazing 100% organic and natural superfoods including super delicious tiger nuts (whole & ground) :).

I hope I could inspire you with this post to get creative in the kitchen and maybe sub some of the sugar you would normally use with a little portion of tiger nut flour in your next dessert creation.
