Not all tiger nuts are created equal! We care about quality and have put a lot of effort into sourcing what we think are the best tiger nuts available. We only deal with carefully chosen EU based suppliers. They control the quality of our tiger nuts from the soil to us, and we control the quality from them to you.

Our suppliers were also chosen because they are world leading innovators in tiger nuts.

Our Valencia based suppliers have state of the art facilities that are used to wash, sort, scan and dry our tiger nuts. These facilities allow us to provide tiger nuts that have been dried for 3 months in a controlled environment, where they have been turned daily. This is extremely important, as it prevents moulds and spores from developing on the tiger nuts and allows them to develop the naturally sweet flavour our tiger nuts are known for. This intensive drying process is often not carried out on tiger nuts from cheaper suppliers so if you do go elsewhere it is always worth checking (but really our tiger nuts are the best so you should just stay here!).

The state of the art facilities also allows our tiger nuts to be scanned multiple times for foreign objects before they are vacuum packed using carbon dioxide (meaning no pesticides are used). As well as making sure the process is totally organic, we pay a little extra to our suppliers to make sure our tiger nuts are packed in gluten-free and nut-free environments*. (*except our 35g bags which are packed by us by hand in our kitchen at home).

Who knew so much effort could go into such a simple little superfood?

About our Packaging

 

Our packaging is a little quirky, and we like it that way!

We really care about the impact we have on our planet, and plastic pollution in our oceans is a massive concern. We have spent months researching and have managed to reduce plastic in our bags from using heavy duty single use plastic to a small window and a light inner filmĀ  which is recyclable. Until something better is developed we still have to use a film for freshness and for shelf life, but we are really pleased as this is around an 85% reduction of plastic in our packaging.

But our aim is zero plastic, and we are continuing to develop more ecologically friendly solutions. For example our chocolate bars (ready in a couple of weeks) are now wrapped in 100% recycled and recyclable paper and foil. We will also be launching new zero plastic tiger nut milk making kits really soon
