What is a TigerNut?
TigerNuts are not nuts, they are actually tubers, small root vegetables. They compromised up to 80% of their Paleo ancestors' diet around 2 million years ago. This ancient superfood originates from Africa. It is currently cultivated in West Africa & Spain. TigerNuts are the #1 source of Resistant Starch, a prebiotic fiber that resists digestion and becomes fuel for their probiotic bacteria.
TigerNuts are rich in prebiotic fiber. Prebiotics act as food for your body's natural organisms. They help your gut's natural probiotics thrive. A single ounce of TigerNuts has 40% of our daily recommended fiber!

About Organic Gemini
Two years ago, Founder Mariam Kinkladze's doctor diagnosed her with ovarian cancer and told her that she would need to have one of her ovaries removed. After visiting the best specialists in New York, each of them confirmed that initial diagnosis. The most devastating part was that she would unlikely be able to have children.
Her partner, George, began to research alternative treatments, thinking that surgery might not be the only option. He found a study where women in similar situations were using alternative treatments and a raw food diet to find healing. Neither of them was particularly conscious of their diets and they were certainly skeptical of such a simple solution to a problem as profound as cancer.
They decided to pursue a holistic treatment first and reserve invasive surgery for the final alternative. She enlisted the help of a holistic doctor and began a diet restricted to food that was raw, organic, Non-GMO, gluten-free, and dairy-free. George joined her in support. It was a drastic change for them, since they were used to eating whatever they wanted, but they stuck to it and monitored their health closely.
After a month, her doctor informed her that the cyst appeared to be shrinking. After two months, he confirmed that it had shrunk considerably. By the end of the third month, the cyst had disappeared completely. They were all in disbelief.
Around the same time, they discovered some new cells had begun to grow: those that would become her beautiful baby boy, Lukas. She was pregnant, something that had seamed unfathomable just months before. Now, a year later, she has a happy, healthy, and beautiful child. If she had not pursued a holistic approach, Lukas would have never been born. Furthermore, my fertility is now higher than it has ever been.
And her partner? Him changing his diet to support her resulted in drastic improvements to his own health, including increasing his energy, improving digestion, and strengthening his immune system.
With the miraculous recovery that she made, and the overall improvements to their health, they developed a passion for holistic food, for food that is organic and has not been genetically modified, for raw, gluten-free and dairy-free foods. They decided that they needed to spread this learning to as many people as possible.
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 your 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 their Paleo ancestors’ diet. With everything they had learned along the journey, they felt compelled to share this little tuber with the world.
They 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. They are honored and humbled to be able to help other people experience this wonderful superfood so that they can reap the health benefits that they have experienced and continue to experience.
