Are you lactose intolerant?
Maybe you should consider Tiger Nut Milk!
Tiger Nuts do not contain any lactose, meaning people with lactose intolerance can drink it without any problem. It is also high in calcium, which is a bone building and growth supporting mineral, making it perfect dairy substitute.
In a 2006 study from the University of Llorin, Nigeria, published in the International Journal of Agriculture and Biology, researchers compared Tiger Nut Milk with cow and soybean milk. Tiger Nuts showed themselves to be a serious nutritional contender with other non-milk substitutes, ranking among the highest in fat content, protein levels, calcium, phosphorus, oleic acid and calories. In addition to being a great source of calcium, Tiger Nut milk also has some health benefits that milk lacks, namely Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
Another study found that mixing Tiger Nut Milk with cow’s milk in yogurt production raises the nutritional value of the yogurt while having no adverse effects on taste or texture. Regardless of if you’re lactose intolerant or not, Tiger Nuts are a great addition to your diet!
Making you own Tiger Nuts Milk is relatively easy, here's the recipe:
The 6 Step Tiger Nuts Milk Recipe
2. Drain and rinse Tiger Nuts. Add to a blender with filtered water and blend for about 1 minute.
3. Strain milk through a nut milk bag (or a strainer lined with a thin kitchen towel).
4. Add an additional cup of filtered water to the paste left in the strainer, and strain again.
5. Store in a sealed jar in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. You will notice a fine white starchy substance on the bottom of the jar, so shake well each time or use a spoon to scrape it off if it has settled.
6. Drink! Tiger nut milk is best to drink within 3 days.
