I have a new and exciting product to share with you guys! Thanks to the company Organic Gemini, I received cool products made from Tigernuts! I know what your probably thinking, what in the world are tigernuts? Well let me explain them to you my friend: This is what how the company explains them:
“They are actually not nuts, they are tubers which are small root vegetables. They compromised up to 80% of our Paleo ancestors’ diet around 2 million years ago. Tigernuts are the #1 source of Resistant Starch, a prebiotic fiber that resists digestion and becomes fuel for our probiotic bacteria.”
To me they taste like little chestnuts! They are also paleo, vegan, kosher, organic, nut-free and gluten-free!
Organic Gemini sent me a ton of cool tasty products that are made with tigernuts! First off:
