High in fibre, iron, potassium, magnesium and vitamin C, they are certainly a worthy addition to any diet. They are also gluten-free and nut-free, making them an appealing option to many.

With their sweet taste and chewy texture they can be added to a vast array of meals. Sprinkle over cereal or porridge, add to muffins, blend to make tiger nut milk, or simply grab a handful for a no-fuss snack.
