Tiger Nuts Review

We are always up for trying new foods.  Especially foods that are natural and healthy.  Were trying to cut out as much prepackaged junk foods as possible so healthy treats to munch on are always welcome in our house.  I recently tried Tiger Nuts.  I can't really say they are for us but when it comes to reviewing food, everyone is different.

Tiger Nuts are not actually a nut.  They are a tuber.  So you don't have to worry about nut allergies.  They are gluten free, organic, dairy free, high in fiber and low in calories and fat. They are also non- GMO and a great addition to the paleo lifestyle.   So naturally I was up for trying them in hopes that we would find a new snack favorite.  Unfortunately we just couldn't get over the texture.  The flavor isn't so bad, just an unpleasant texture.  My husband and I both tried them and didn't like the texture.  So just to make sure we weren't being overly picky, we took the rest of our Tiger Nuts along with us on a family trip and shared them with my parents, uncle and cousin.  Unfortunately no one could get past the texture.  I think it was my mom that described it like eating tree bark with a soft center.  But like I said, everyone is different.  Everyone's taste buds are different so just because we didn't like them, doesn't mean they aren't good.  It just means it wasn't a hit for us. 

Tiger Nuts also makes a flour that is packed with nutrition and great for baking.  This was better for me since it didnt have that texture since its in powder form.  The flavor itself is interesting.   So I was much more fond of the flour than the actual Tiger Nuts.

  1. I like the concept, but I'd probably have a problem with the texture, too.
