As you may have noticed, tiger nuts are popping up all over the place in the Paleo community — specifically Organic Gemini brand. What you may not know is that tiger buts are not actually nuts, they're tubers (or small root vegetables). They're an excellent source of prebiotic fiber, which becomes fuel for probiotic bacteria. One ounce of tigernuts has 40% of your recommended daily fiber. In other words, they're good for the belly! They have a slightly sweet and nutty flavor, reminiscent of coconut, and make for a delicious milk. Try it in your tea or coffee.
