GAPS DISCUSSION

Tigernut flour is a great source of nutrition in terms of magnesium, iron, potassium and zinc to name a few and it is also a great replacement for people on the GAPS diet who are transitioning into the introduction of new flours at the 'GAPS Onwards' stage after at least 18 - 24 months on the program. I recommend introducing it gradually and blending it with another flour first to ensure it is well tolerated (ie not producing gas, bloating or loose stools) The tiger nut is in fact not a nut at all. The tigernut is a good substitute for milk and flour. It is well tolerated by people who have celiac disease and other autoimmune diseases. The tigernut produced into flour or milk are also considered to be a natural source of resistant starch, meaning that when consumed, it is fermented by the gutbiome in the large intestine and converted to a prebiotic to healthy gut bacteria, stimulating bifidobacteria production in the colon and digestive tract. It is however a product I would not recommend for people in the first year who are trying to repair their gut as this is to much starch for a damaged gut wall to manage.  I also do not recommend this flour for people who suffer from diarrhoea as it can produce a mild laxative effect in the same way that flax seed can in being slightly fibrous. In these such cases it should be avoided.
