We are obsessed with tiger nuts and obsessed with quality and so we are very excited to be able to offer you these very special, very delicious, artisan tiger nuts! We care about where our tiger nuts come from. These creamy little tubers are only grown in a small region called Alboraya, just outside Valencia, and we are very proud to have been appointed as the only official UK supplier!

We care a lot about quality, traceability and sustainability, and so we NEVER buy tiger nuts on the open market. We only buy our tiger nuts from one carefully selected eco-agricultural supplier in Valencia who cares about quality and sustainability as much as we do.

Our Tiger Nuts Original are the true Valencian tiger nuts and are quite unique. To be certified and allowed to display the Chufa de Valencia logo, each grower / farmer needs to follow strict procedures for growing the tiger nuts organically and sustainably which includes, quality, size,  drying process and packing. Our supplier is certified, and we have also now been appointed to carry the Chufa de Valencia logo on our Tiger Nuts Original bags

Their water irrigation system is an ancient system of canals which has been designated a UNESCO world heritage site, and the farm still uses this system today. We think it is really important to help to preserve this important cultural and architectural heritage, and by buying our Chufa de Valencia you are doing exactly that!Chufa de Valencia is an artisan product regulated by the Chufa de Valencia Regulatory Council since 1995.

They ensure that strict quality guidelines are maintained when growing, harvesting and drying these delicious tiger nuts. For example, our Chufa de Valencia are dried for between three to five months and are turned by hand daily. Our tiger nuts are then packed in nut free and gluten free environments.

This helps to ensure that the drying process is even and that the tiger nuts develop the distinctive taste. In fact, you can see this drying process and learn about some of the important gut health benefits from Kate Quilton right here in Salmon, Tiger Nuts and Dandelions, Episode 6, series 2 of Channel 4’s Superfoods – The Real Story.
