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 two, carefully chosen EU based suppliers. They control the quality of our tiger Nuts from the soil to us, and we make sure they are of the right quality to give to you.
Our suppliers were also chosen because they are world leading innovators in tiger nuts.
Our main Valencia based supplier has 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*.
Who knew so much effort could go into such a simple little superfood?
* Our 35g bags are the only products packed by us at our home. Our home kitchen does contain nuts and gluten, and whilst we take great care to avoid cross contamination if you have a serious concern or allergy we suggest you stick to our larger packs or give us a call ?
