Brooklyn-based company 'TigerNut,' is now producing an organic horchata drink that is made from nutrient-dense superfoods. Horchata is a traditional Spanish drink, which is generally made from grains such as rice or nuts such as almonds. Putting a new spin on this age-old recipe, these organic horchata drinks are made from a superfood called tigernuts.

The TigerNut horchata drinks are cold-pressed and naturally sweetened with cane sugar. All of the ingredients used are organic and GMO-free. The most important of these ingredients is the tigernut, which is actually not a nut at all. Tigernuts are a root vegetable and they are packed with a particular kind of fiber called resistant starch. This resistant starch is extremely high in calcium, iron, potassium and vitamin E, making it a nutritious base for horchata.

Suitable for vegans and those following a gluten-free diet, the TigerNut horchata drinks are a healthy beverage choice.
