A homemade Tiger Nut Milk is a delectable new dairy-free milk recipe to try. It's creamy, sweet, and only requires two, or let's say three main ingredients to create. By the way, it's vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, lactose-free.
Tiger nuts are relatively unknown, particularly in terms of their nutritional value. You can enjoy all of the health benefits of these edible tubers while eating them. Prebiotic fiber, iron, potassium, protein, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins E and C are all the nutrients abundant in tiger nuts.
Meanwhile, the tiger nut milk, also known as ofio, is a dairy-free substitute for cow milk.
I should also point out that there's the tiger nut flour, contrary to its name, which is a starchy powder derived from root vegetables rather than nuts. This means that tiger nut products are suitable for people with nut allergies, as well as those following low-carb, gluten-free diets.
In recent times, tiger nut flour is growing increasingly common on health food and specialty store shelves around the country as these diets become more popular.
A tiny amount of tiger nut flour can be substituted for wheat or another flour in a dish to add extra nutrients.
The flour has a delicate, nutty flavor with a root vegetable's slightly sweet and earthy fragrance. These sweet taste attributes enhance the flavor of any meal made using tiger nut flour.
Notably, tiger nuts have been around for 4,000 years, says Jack Sims, the founder of Supreme Peeled, America's first tiger nut enterprise. He credits their popularity to the fact that they were an important part of our forefathers' diets, as well as the fact that the tiny tubers are high in fiber, low in calories, and low in fat.
