Here’s a little shocker for you. ‘Gluten-free’ doesn’t always mean healthy!

Posted on Posted in Gluten Free

Not all gluten-free foods are the same for a number of reasons. Rice can be heavily contaminated with arsenic. Some contain high amounts of sugar, salt, and oil, and are laced with chemicals that you can’t pronounce. Most are not organic. Some are even genetically modified! Many are heavily processed, with very little nutrients left in them. Such nutrient-poor, calorically dense foods will only lead to nutritional deficiency and weight gain.

Another problem with most processed gluten-free snacks is that they are not free of all the other major food allergens such as dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, yeast, corn, sesame seeds, fish, shell fish, and nightshades such as potatoes and tomatoes. Many of those suffering from gluten intolerance can also be suffering from other delayed-onset food allergies, as leaky gut is usually the underlying problem in food sensitivities. Some even find out that they have a reaction to as many as 25 foods after going for food allergy testing.

Enter Tiger Nuts, the seriously healthy gluten-free snack that is organic, GMO-free, and allergen-free (see us listed at http://www.snacksafely.com). That’s right, because Tiger Nuts are not really nuts but tubers! They’re these really small tubers the size of nuts, which is probably why they are called Tiger Nuts. Here are a couple more things about them: (1) they have the crunch of cashews; (2) they taste like coconut. Okay let’s repeat all that. Tiger Nuts are tubers that have the crunch and size of nuts but the taste of a milky tropical fruit!

How fun can a snack get?
