SLICED Tigernuts

Sliced Tigernuts are an excellent nut alternative and are extremely high in fibre (41%!). Use them to decorate the tops of cakes and cookies as a nut-free alternative to sliced almonds. Add Sliced Tigernuts to muffins or your cereal and yogourt for natural sweetness and a morning fibre boost!

Tigernuts are small tubers, not actual nuts – an important fact for those with allergies. Tigernuts are the fruit of a grass (Cyperus Esculentes). Its root tubers are distinguished by an unusually high proportion of fibre and a delicious taste.
