Unlike milk made from almonds or other nuts which are typically very high in inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids, tigernut milk is, instead, rich in monounsaturated fat, as well as minerals and vitamins C and E and that’s why some people decide to include horchata in their daily menu. It is a great probiotic, good with cereal and very sweet, however. Loads of health benefits!
