Tiger nuts are not nuts.  They are actually a small root vegetable that originated in Egypt.  Tiger nut flour is made by roasting tiger nuts and milling the roasted roots into a fine powder.

Tiger nuts are edible tubers rich in magnesium, zinc, Vitamin E and prebiotic fiber.  Prebiotic fiber is a type of digestion-friendly bacteria that feeds the probiotics in our gut.  The fat composition is 73% monounsaturated fat.  Monounsaturated fats can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood which can lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.

The high level of carbohydrates keeps its remix ranking being higher than #8.
