Horchata de chufa is a traditional Spanish drink originating from the Valencia region. It is prepared from chufas, also known as tiger nuts. Here are some more details about this drink:

  1. Ingredients : The main ingredient is nutsedge, a tuber that is not actually a nut. Other ingredients include water and sugar. Sometimes cinnamon and lemon zest are added to enhance the taste.

  2. Preparation : The tigernuts are first soaked in water for several hours to soften them. Then they are ground into a paste, and water is added to extract the liquid. This liquid is then filtered to remove solids, and sugar is added to taste.

  3. Characteristics : Horchata de chufa has a mild and creamy flavor with a unique nutty taste. It is usually served cold and is particularly refreshing in hot weather.

  4. Consumption : In Spain, horchata de chufa is often consumed in summer as a refreshing drink. It is sometimes accompanied by local pastries like fartons, long sweet donuts designed to be dipped in the drink.

Horchata de chufa is not only delicious, but it also has nutritional benefits, including being rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals.

The origin of Horchata dates back to the Arab period of Spain. They are even found in ancient Egypt .

We grow nutsedge for eight months, as our grandparents did, without any chemical treatment. Through the maturation process, the starch of the tigernut is transformed into natural sugars which give it the characteristic flavor of horchata de chufa made with tigernuts grown in the Huerta de Valencia. Unlike most horchata on the market, we do not use milk proteins as stabilizers, but organic stabilizers of plant origin. It is therefore a drink that is suitable for vegans and those with lactose intolerance.
