Tiger nuts, also referred to as yellow nutsedge, chufa, and nut grass, aren't actually nuts - they're a tuber (root vegetable) that's part of the Cyperus esculentus family. Although this plant is cultivated for consumption in Spain, in other areas, it's considered a weed. However, looking at all the wonderful health benefits it offers, perhaps more countries should adopt farming tiger nuts. High in fiber and rich in minerals, tiger nuts provide many health benefits, with little side effects. As a great source of plant protein, a gluten-free food, and a non-dairy option for those who are lactose-intolerant, tiger nuts can be successfully incorporated into many limited diets.

1. Aid digestion

Tiger nuts are high in dietary fiber. As a starchy root plant, they help provide necessary "roughage" to your diet. The fiber in food aids your digestive system. Fiber-rich foods help you feel full, for more extended periods of time. They also slow digestion, which allows your gut to process your food steadily. Slow and consistent digestion helps regulate your gut and gives it plenty of time to absorb all the nutrients from your food. Furthermore, it helps your body experience regular, healthy bowel movements. Those with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other digestive complaints may find relief from a high fiber diet.
