Horchata, a sweet plant milk beverage produced from soaked tiger nuts and white sugar, uses tiger nuts as one of its main ingredients. Egypt was the origin of tiger nut cultivation, which eventually expanded to other parts of the world, particularly Spain.
I'm curious about the flavor. Tiger nuts are chewy and have a flavor and texture that are similar to almonds and coconuts. They can be dried, roasted, juiced, boiled, or eaten raw after being roasted.
Following are 4 groups of persons who, in accordance with WebMD and Healthline, ought to consume more tiger nuts:
1. Those who have diabetes (diabetes)
Tiger nuts are a great low-carb snack for diabetics who have trouble controlling their blood sugar levels. Their high fiber content delays digestion and maintains steady blood sugar levels.
Additionally, tiger nuts have been shown to increase insulin sensitivity by over 40%, reducing your risk of type 2 diabetes. Among these is arginine, an amino acid that enhances insulin production and sensitivity, two factors that are essential for controlling blood glucose levels.
2. People suffering from indigestion & stomach related complications.
Constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, and indigestion can all be resolved by using these nuts to help your digestive system regain its equilibrium. They include a lot of fiber, which promotes healthy digestion and the assimilation of nutrients while preventing constipation.
By giving good gut bacteria food, resistant starch, a type of fiber included in tiger nuts, functions as a prebiotic. This demonstrates both their diversity and purpose.
3. People with heart problems
A lot of monounsaturated fats with a profile similar to olive oil can be found in tiger nuts, according to studies. Monounsaturated fats aid to maintain heart health by lowering bad cholesterol and reducing your chances of developing heart disease, having a heart attack, and having a stroke.
Monounsaturated fats have the potential to further improve overall health by encouraging weight loss, reducing the risk of cancer, improving insulin sensitivity, and reducing inflammation.
A component that increases the body's production of nitric oxide is arginine, which is another ingredient in tiger nuts. Nitric oxide is necessary for the blood vessel expansion and relaxation that reduces blood pressure.
4. Those who have a weakened immune system
Tiger nuts' ability to fight against diseases, particularly bacterial infections like salmonella and E. coli, may improve the efficiency of your immune system.
Tiger nut extract, according to researchers, may also help in the fight against germs that are antibiotic-resistant.
Including these nuts in your diet can aid in the immune system's defense against harmful pathogens.
