In Spain and Nigeria it is used to make a non-alcoholic milky beverage called kunnu or hochuta.
The grass produces a crop similar to peanuts that you can harvest from the roots tubers that store the plants nutrients which can be dried (right picture). Tigernuts have long been recognised for their health benefits as they are high in fibre, proteins, and natural sugars. They have a high content of soluble glucose and oleic acid. Along with a high energy content (starch, fats, sugars and proteins), they are rich in minerals such as phosphorous and potassium and in vitamins E and C. It is believed that they help to prevent heart attacks, thrombosis and cancer especially of the colon. Typically, 100g (0.27 lbs) tigernuts are 386 cal with 7% proteins, 26% fats (oils), 31% starch, 21% glucose. They contain 26% fibre of which 14% is non-soluble and 12% soluble and are naturally sweet.
