I discovered tigernuts by chance during my travels in Spain, while I was still a student: a seed with a thousand flavors and a thousand virtues, that the people of Barcelona consume in the form of vegetable milk: "the horchata de chufa" I literally fell in love with this drink, which I used to consume on a daily basis there.
When I returned to France, I looked for the famous drink, but could not find any.
Moreover, it was only later that I made the link between the Spanish “horchata” and the tigernut seed, also called “chufa” or tiger nut, an oilseed close to the almond which can be made. lots of interesting things. In fact, tigernuts can be eaten as is as a snack, as well as in gourmet preparations: sweet or savory granolas, tiger nut flakes, spreadable or spreading creams, or even flour and oils.
I wanted to make all these preparations on my own, and little by little the idea of creating my own brand sprouted. The meeting with nutgrass producers during a trip to Valence in 2015 was a real trigger: the nutgrass was very little known in France, it was time to share its benefits with as many people as possible!
THIS IS THE BIRTH OF LA NOIX TIGREE, A RANGE OF ORGANIC, GLUTEN-FREE, GOURMET AND TIGER-BASED PRODUCTS, INTENDED FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO TAKE CARE OF THEM WHILE PLEASING EVERYDAY.
The adventure has only just begun!
