Tiger nut, also called tiger nut or ndiir in Wolof, is a tuber that has been used for centuries for its healing and regenerating properties. It is considered a complete food and very interesting at the nutritional level thanks to its contributions in vitamins, minerals and trace elements, soluble and insoluble fibers or good fats. It is an excellent source of vegetable protein and is extremely easy to digest compared to other fiber sources. 

Nutsedge is rich in minerals such as phosphorus, magnesium, calcium and iron. It also provides vitamins C and E, starch, unsaturated fats, proteins and some enzymes which facilitate digestion. Note that vitamin E, antioxidant, reduces the effects of bad cholesterol – LDL – which is produced in our body, it is therefore strongly recommended for cardiovascular health.

It also provides zinc, which plays an important role in growth, immune response, neurological and reproductive functions.

It contributes to the assimilation of nutrients and helps regulate intestinal function. It thus avoids constipation and acts as an appetite suppressant that promotes weight loss and stabilization. Thanks to its regulatory action on the level of sugar in the blood, it is particularly recommended as part of a diet for diabetics.

It participates in the healing of our organs and is therefore particularly recommended in the treatment of ulcers. 

Tiger nut is also recognized as an important source of oleic acid (omega 9), identical to olive oil, considered so far as the most beneficial oil for health.

And on top of all that, it is gluten-free & lactose-free, so it is advisable to consume it regularly as part of any diet!
