The Tigernut (cyperus sculentus lativum) or 'Chufa' as it is known in Spanish, is not actually a nut, but a small tuber. It was first discovered 4000 years ago and comes in several sizes.
Tigernuts can be regarded as the world´s first superfood as they were what our ancestors used to eat thousands of years ago. Moreover, according to research from Oxford University, they comprised up to 80% of our Paleo ancestors’ diet around 2 million years ago. Now Tigernuts have made a great comeback as one of the healthiest foodstuffs on the market. (Information provided by Tigernut Traders)
