Chufa Butter Tahina

Chufa nuts, or Tiger Nuts, which is not a nut at all, but rather a tuber of sedge grass, is one of the most powerful and well-known superfoods on the planet. While its use goes back to ancient times, it has recently been identified as a great addition to the paleo diet, and is an excellent food for people with allergies or gluten intolerance, as a digestive aid, a potent antioxidant and an aphrodisiac.

We source our non-GMO Chufa from USA, Spain, and Africa. Chufa (Cyperus esculentus) comes loaded with its own Vitamins A, B6, C, D and E, Vitamin B6, Zinc, other nutrients, and minerals, as well as antioxidants and good acids like oleic and linoleic acid, palmitic acid, and stearic acid. It also has Quercetin, Omega-9, and antioxidants, and you can see why so many people have chosen to consume it regularly.

Organizations all around the world have unveiled the potential health benefits of Chufa. Our Chufa is 100% plant-based, gluten-free, lactose-free, and always organic. Chufa is a great source for potential immunity-enhancing nutrients. Chufa is a major prebiotic “resistance starch” source.

It is an excellent source of protein, able to combat inflammation, and to reduce bad cholesterol. Chufa is Spanish. Also called Tiger Nuts.

The small wrinkled “nuts” have a delicious flavor, sweet and nutty, and especially popular all around the world is the milk which can be easily pressed from chufa.
