Tigernut Oil

Tiger nuts (Cyperus esculentus), also called earth almonds or chufras, are the edible, underground tubers of a cyperus grass, which belongs to the sedge family (Cyperaceae). Despite its name, the tiger nut is not a true almond. The name derives from its almond-like flavour. Today, tiger nuts are mainly cultivated around the Mediterranean, in particular in Spain. The oil content of the tiger nut is approximately 25 percent. The oil is carefully pressed from the dried, chopped tubers.
