Buy now: Shaved tiger nuts 1kg

Hazelnuts, walnuts, macadamia nuts – you probably already know all these types of nuts. But have you ever heard of tiger nuts? No? Then pay attention, because these pea-sized, brown nodules have a lot to offer! In Africa, where tiger nuts originated, they have been used for centuries as a popular food and remedy. In Egypt and the Middle East, too, they have long been said to have a healing effect. In the meantime, however, the "nuts" have also arrived in Europe and are known here under various names. Perhaps the name tiger nut means something to you. The small nodule is called tiger nut because of its special appearance: the tiger nut is striped like a tiger!

A nut for people allergic to nuts?!

You may be asking yourself why we've put “nuts” in in inverted commas? Just like almonds, cashews and Brazil nuts, tiger nuts are not really nuts, since they do not fall from the tree in their shells. In fact, the tiger nut plant is a sour grass that looks like ordinary grass and on whose roots pea-sized, brown nodules form - the tiger nuts. This gives them a decisive advantage, especially for those of us who suffer from allergies: even if you have a nut allergy, you can eat our tiger nuts without hesitation and use them in cooking and baking. 

Using shaved tiger nuts

The tiger nut is hardly edible raw, as it is very difficult to chew. That is why they are usually processed. In Spain, it is traditionally the main ingredient of the national drink Horchata de Chufa - a refreshing, vegetable tiger nut milk. We offer tiger nuts in dried and flaked form. Due to their light, natural sweetness, they are perfect as an ingredient in a tiger nut granola with cinnamon, as a nut alternative in your home-mixed muesli or to bake an almond and cherry cake. But the nut can be used for more than as a nut and cereal substitute in your baked goods. They also taste delicious as an alternative to peanuts in our coriander pesto, as a topping on your veggie bowl or as a crunchy batter for your vegan chicken nuggets.

Production

Erdmandeln aus Niger:

Erdmandeln werden auch “Tigernüsse” oder “Chufas” genannt. Bereits im alten Ägypten wurden sie als Nahrungspflanze kultiviert. Sie gehören zur Gattung der Zypergräser, haben also entgegen ihres Namens nichts mit Mandeln oder Erdnüssen zu tun. Heute werden die Knollen sowohl im Mittelmeerraum, als auch in Ostindien und Brasilien angebaut. Ursprünglich kommen sie aber vermutlich aus Afrika. Hier sind auch unsere Erdmandeln beheimatet. In Niger ist fleißiges Wachsen angesagt!

Die Erdmandel-Ernte

Erdmandeln wachsen am liebsten in sandigem Boden. Zwischen April und Mai wird die Pflanze eingesetzt, bis September darf sie dann groß werden. Danach ist Trocknungszeit! Bis November oder Dezember trocknen die Erdmandeln unter der Erde auf den Feldern, bevor sie bis März des folgenden Jahres mit einer Erntemaschine geerntet werden.

Jetzt wird getrocknet!

Bis die Erdmandel so aussieht, wie auf diesem Bild, dauert es eine ganze Weile: Nach der Ernte wird das oberirdische Blattwerk maschinell entfernt. Danach wird die Erde abgesiebt und die übrig gebliebenen Knollen werden gewaschen. Jetzt wird wieder getrocknet, diesmal aber in einer großen Halle und für drei Monate. Die Erdmandeln werden regelmäßig gewendet, damit sie schön gleichmäßig trocknen. Nach dieser Beauty-Prozedur sind sie nun endlich verzehrfertig!

Erdmandeln: Gehobelt oder gemahlen?

Der letzte Schritt geht dafür umso schneller: Die Erdmandeln werden in unserem Werk in Spanien gehobelt bzw. gemahlen und sofort in unsere großen 1 kg-Vorteilspackungen abgefüllt. Jetzt sind sie bereit für Deine Koch- und Backaktionen!"

Keeps you full forever and tastes delicious nutty

Mega delicious, super healthy and simply brilliant for breakfast. Combined with flaxseed, psyllium husks, chia seeds, oat milk and some fruit a perfect start to the week. It keeps very long full and is also great to nibble in between times.

Enrichment for my healthy diet

I got to know tiger nuts years ago, but I love this form of sliced tiger nuts. I use them to spice up my muesli, porridge, porridge, yoghurt or just to nibble on.

Not my thing

The taste is quite pleasant, rather mild. But I find the texture takes some getting used to. Rather less appealing to eat like this. I will use them up in porridge/overnight oats. Maybe I'll throw some into a stew. That's ok. But I don't think I'll buy them again. Real almonds are tastier. OK, they also have more flavor carrier fat, and the consistency is much better.
