Premium Organic Tiger Nuts Review

Screen Shot 2014-06-21 at 6.26.56 PM

Well here’s a shocker, Tiger Nuts are actually NOT nuts, they are a tuber that grows below the ground’s surface. They have all of the nutrients and energy benefits of nuts and then some, but without the stuff that can adversely affect allergies.

They are packed with fiber, vitamins and nutrients, and deliver a serious dose of energy. And because they have so much fiber, they make you feel full, which of course helps curb your appetite.

Tiger Nuts are probably the “Healthiest ‘single source’ snack food on the market“, and they have been that way for over 4000 years. Tiger nuts grow only in certain parts of the globe where the climate and soil are perfect, and these Tiger Nuts come from the very best soil and growing conditions anywhere in the world and that’s Valencia on the eastern coast of Spain; one of my favorite places (and where I spent a semester abroad). Just for the record, the other big area where Tiger Nuts are grown and consumed is Nigeria.

I recently tried the new Supreme Peeled Tiger Nuts.These organic tiger nuts are already peeled. The outer skin is removed, making them ready to eat out of the bag.

Tiger Nuts are about the size of a pea, hence their name. They have a woody and nutty taste similar to coconuts, that gets sweeter as you chew. I’m actually eating some right now, as I write this post. I just threw a few in my mouth to chew on. That’s what you do with these, you chew. It’s somewhat unexpected the first time you eat them; I was expecting something harder like a nut. I have to admit I was not a fan at first, but the second and time I tried tiger nuts, they grew on me and I really liked them.

Tiger Nuts have the all-natural benefits that come from a food that has grown without pesticides, have a naturally sweet taste that makes them ideal for diabetics, people who are lactose intolerant, and those who have digestive problems. And since they are a Tuber, it makes them Vegan, but taste like a nut.They are also perfect for people who want a healthy food that will seriously do them good while acting as an appetite suppressant at the same time.

If you are into heath and well-being, paleo, working out, can read the back label of a pack, struggle with celiac, diabetes, weight loss (they curb your appetite) and are generally looking for a snack that will hold you over to the next meal, then you should absolutely give these tasty, and healthy, nuts a try.

Can you purchase Tiger Nuts online for $5.99 for a 5 oz bag (2 for $10.99) or $13.99 for a 12 oz bag (2 for $23.99). You can also find Tiger Nuts in specialty health food stores—Cambridge Natural Foods, and Good Health Natural Foods in Quincy and Hingham are the only locations within 25 miles of Boston. For a complete list of retail locations, check out the store locator.

 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

I've been on a gluten free diet since January 2009. It's been an adventure, and a challenge at times. I love to go to new restaurants and try new foods, and being gluten free can make eating out difficult at times. But I will not let my dietary restrictions get in my way of finding new restaurants and products. These are my stories of being a young women in a big city, eating out and trying new foods, all while NOT eating gluten. Like I said, it's an adventure and you are welcome to come along... Please note that as I try to eat gluten free 100% of the time, my intolerance is not as severe as others so please use caution when dining at restaurants that are not certified gluten free.
