Tiger Nut Flour

SKU FIE0137

Applications & Usage

Uses Tiger nut flour is a bit sweeter than most grains, owing to natural sugars in the root. It's best to mix this ingredient with another flour (like coconut, arrowroot or almond) for the best baking results. Use it as a binding ingredient in veggie burgers, black bean patties, meatloaf, and other savory dishes.
