Tiger Nuts are Paleo Perfect!

We are sure that have heard of the caveman diet, or the Paleo Diet as it is better known? It’s one of the most, if not, most popular and successful diet's at the moment.

Benefits of following the Paleo diet include weight loss, improved musculature, digestive health, stable blood sugar levels, and better sleep to name a few.

Foods are considered ‘Paleo’ if they have been around since the Paleolithic age. Allowed foods include nuts, tubers, fruits, vegetables, eggs, and animal flesh. Excluded from the diet are grains, legumes, refined sugar, and dairy—so-called Neolithic and modern-day processed foods.

But did you know that early last year Oxford University researchers studied the teeth of the “Nutcracker Man” and found out that our hunter-gatherer forebears ate Tiger Nuts as their main fare. Uhuh. That’s right. Contrary to what some diet gurus teach, Oxford scientists believe that our ancestors ate mostly a diet of tiger nuts, with some worms and grasshoppers on the side. They also pointed out that it was tiger nuts—not red meat—that helped develop our Stone Age ancestors’ brains!

This only proves what we have believed from the very start: Tiger Nuts are truly one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet! In fact we believe that our Tiger Nuts are PALEO PERFECT.

Tiger Nuts are currently not grown in every country in the world, but they were ubiquitous millions of years ago, said Oxford’s top anthropology researchers. Well, we are making sure that these Paleolithic “nuts” are available in the US. Our growers in Spain gather, clean, wash our Organic Tiger Nuts and ship them to our Organic warehouse in the US, where we pack them fresh for you.
