Buy now: Ground tiger nuts 1 kg
Tiger nuts ... are they peanuts, almonds or a mixture? What is it about the pea-sized, brown nodules? We got to the bottom of it and went on a little safari to answer this question for you. "Why safari, you ask? Well, because tiger nuts are originally native to Africa! There, by the way, they have been used as a remedy for centuries. But the tiger nut has also arrived in Europe. It is particularly popular over here because it is not really a nut or shell fruit, but a grass plant. This means that even nut allergy sufferers can enjoy it! You want to convince yourself of the nut alternative? Go for it! At KoRo you can buy the ground tiger nuts in the convenient 1 kg value pack online!
Tiger nut – where does the name come from?
The special plant is known as tiger nut. The appearance is particularly striking. The pea-sized, brown balls have stripes on them, just like tigers. That's why they have come to be known as tiger nuts.
Tiger nut: the nut for people with nut allergies?!
Now you're probably wondering why tiger nuts are completely safe for nut allergy sufferers. After all, they are often mentioned in the same breath as peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts and such. Even in KoRo's online shop, tiger nut flour is listed in the nut flour category and our shaved tiger nuts appear under the raw nuts page! If we want to be precise, it is not accurate to list tiger nuts as nuts. Despite the name, tiger nuts are not actual nuts. They come from a sour grass plant which forms brown nodules on its roots — tiger nuts.
Processing ground tiger nuts
The tiger nut has a lot to offer - especially as an alternative to cereals and ground nuts. So tiger nut flour is wonderful for baked goods such as bread, cakes and pastries. Just make sure that you don't replace the wheat flour 1:1. It is best to mix the tiger nut flour with another flour, for example buckwheat flour, to improve the baking quality. Even stirred lightly into yoghurt or porridge, the sweet taste of the ground nodules is convincing and with 14 g of dietary fibre per 100 g, they give you a good start to the day! Tiger nut flour is also a great binder for sauces or soups.

Tasty and very fine
Very tasty and fine. Previously I had very crunchy tiger nut flours. This one is extra fine and therefore better to process, for example as tiger nut energy balls or tiger nut banana bread or homemade tiger nut puree. Simply delicious.
