Chufa Flour


Chufa is a “tuber” — one of a plant’s root storage organs. It comes from Northern Africa, but is mainly cultivated in Spain, Morocco and Ghana. Also known as tiger nut, yellow nutsedge, and earth almond, it has no allergenicity, despite its nicknames. Tastewise, chufa has a nutty, vanilla, and shredded coconut profile that helps to dampen the intensity of Mez™ Bars, smoothing the flavor into something rich and delicious. From a nutritional standpoint, it's a complex starch that gives interesting benefits, and there’s some research showing that the soluble fiber inherent to chufa allows for better absorption of micronutrients.
