By now you know that tiger nuts are no nuts, so this gluten-free, grain-free flour is automatically also nut-free.
Since tiger nuts are naturally sweet, contain a healthy amount of healthy fats, they are an ideal candidate to substitute almond flour.
On top, they have a high level of resistant starch, which reaches the colon intact. Resistant starch promotes prebiotic growth and supports a healthy immune and digestive track. It can also lower blood glucose levels and improves insulin sensitivity.
Tiger nut flour is light in colour and due to the slightly sweet and nutty flavour, it allows bakers to cut back on added sugar. It tends to work well in combination with other flours and starches.
Where normal gluten-free flowers lack in giving your baked goods a crunchy texture, tiger nut flour will deliver. Add tiger nut flour to brownies, pancakes, cookies and veggie patties.
