Tigernuts are widely known and very popular for carpfishing. These originally African groundnuts are grown in West Africa. They are mainly grown for the Spanish market, where they are used to make tigernut milk (Horchata).Tigernuts grow underground and the plant itself looks grassy. The nuts are planted in April and harvested in November and December.
We import Tigernutsourselves directly from Africa and they arrive by sea containers to us. In our production facility we have a washing lineespecially built for washing and cleaning tigernuts. Because tigernuts are grownunderground, there are always pieces of roots, pieces of wood, stones and floating tigernuts in a delivered batch. By washing themtheusable nuts are separated and cleaned from all sand and dust, ensuring the best quality possible.
