Tigernut OIl by Organic Gemini

$26.00
Styling Notes:

This high quality oil is extracted by a cold, virgin process in order to ensure that it retains all the unique nutritious qualities of the TigerNut itself. The oil is golden brown in color and has a rich, nutty taste. TigerNut Oil was first used by Egyptians 4,000 years ago in preference to olive oil. Indeed, it is generally considered a healthier alternative. Highly recommended for cooking above other oils because it is more resistant to chemical decomposition at high temperatures. Furthermore, less fat is absorbed into the food as it creates a crust on the surface during cooking, preventing the oil itself being absorbed into the product.  TigerNut oil is also a fantastic component of beauty products. It has a high oleic acid content and low acidity and is excellent for the skin.

 

 

The founders began this company in their journey towards a healthier life.  One of the foods that was essential in this journey was an ancient superfood known as a TigerNut. It is a root vegetable (not a nut) that originates from Northern Africa and the Mediterranean. TigerNuts are loaded with fiber in the form of Resistant Starch, a prebiotic that actually helps our bodies to develop probiotics. They are rich in iron, potassium, and other essential nutrients. A recent study by Oxford University revealed that TigerNuts made up to 80% of our Paleo ancestors’ diet. With everything the founders had learned along the journey, they felt compelled to share this little tuber with the world.

 

The founders created a company called Organic Gemini that uses TigerNuts as the centerpiece for many different types of products, including a beverage called Horchata, a gluten- free flour, a cold-pressed oil, and of course the raw organic TigerNuts themselves. Although TigerNuts, also known as chufa, are popular in different parts of the world, they are excited to introduce it to the US through these products.
