➡️What is a tigernut? It is a small root vegetable (not a nut as the name implies!) that grows in Northern Africa and in the Mediterranean. Tigernuts are high in fiber, iron, potassium, protein, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins E and C. Did you know that 1 ounce of these crunchy root vegetables can contain about 40 percent of the recommended daily fiber intake?
➡️What are some other benefits of tigernuts? Tigernuts contain natural sugar, healthy fats, and 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. TigerNuts are rich in prebiotic fiber. Prebiotics act as food for your body's natural organisms. They help your gut's natural probiotics thrive. It can also lower blood glucose levels and can improve insulin sensitivity.
