The idea for Spera Foods was born in the summer of 2015 while studying abroad in Europe. I spent a few weeks with my cousin in Germany and was introduced to the Tiger Nut. I immediately fell in love with the taste and the nutritional value of the Tiger Nut breakfast porridge I ate in Germany.I returned to America with several boxes of the breakfast porridge for my friends and family. When I ran out of my supply of Tiger Nut porridge, I went to search online for a supplier, thinking I would easily be able to find this product. However, no one sells Tiger Nut porridge in America. In fact, there are only a few, very expensive, options for any Tiger Nut products. The lack of a product I loved has led me to where I am today. Launching my own food company! This endeavor is so far from what I imagined I would do with my life but yet fits my dreams closely. Spera Foods aims to provide the next super-food, the Tiger Nut to America, which we hope will empower Americans to eat healthier. There is a need for a convenient nutritious-dense, enjoyable, food with a great flavor profile and that meets dietary restrictions. Spera Foods Tiger Nut products are nut free, gluten free, vegan, low in sugar and nutrient rich, allowing us to meet everyone’s needs.
