Tigernut is a herbaceous plant native to Niger. With its stiff stems and long, thin leaves, it could be mistaken for grass.
While this plant seems very simple, it actually hides an absolute treasure underground. Its round and scaly tubers have been used as a food since antiquity, especially in Egypt where they were roasted before being eaten. 6,000 years ago, they were even roasted and then consumed like coffee.
Today, Tigernut tubers are cold pressed to extract an oil recognised for its toning and anti-ageing properties on the skin.
