FAQ

Well, it isn’t a nut, as the name might imply. It is a small root vegetable that grows in Northern Africa and the Mediterranean. Tigernut flour is naturally gluten free and Paleo. And it offers those allergic to nuts an option for adding protein when baking and cooking.

Tigernut also adds protein, fiber, and many other nutrients to your diet.

Panela is a raw, unrefined cane sugar. Ours is hand cut, hand kettled, hand crafted. That means no industrial collection or processing. It has been traditionally handmade for centuries by dehydrating raw sugarcane juice over low heat. Because it is made in such a simple way, it retains the flavorful and nutrient rich molasses from sugarcane. The molasses in panela gives it its distinct flavor as well as some naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and
antioxidants.

Our tigernut flour is specially steamed and the almond flour is pasteurized.  This ensures safety in eating the cookie dough.  No eggs are used, as this is a vegan product.

This is very important at Sarah’s Delectables.  We buy directly from the producer whenever possible.  Our tigernut flour comes from Spain.  A family company in California produces our almond flour.  The fair trade plus vanilla is from Singing Dog, a company here in the USA. Our panela is from Columbia.  Spices are obtained from a New York company that partners with artisan spice farmers around the world.  Every purchase directly supports them.

Coconut oil comes from the Philippines.  The company uses a portion of every sale towards regenerative agriculture.

Absolutely!  This is a huge factor in what companies we have decided to use.

No GMO’s are in our products, EVER!!!

We avoid the use of anything that is laboratory made!  Since natural flavorings are basically “perfume for food”, they are 80-90% chemicals.  This is why you will not find certain flavors of cookie dough from us (like birthday cake).

The cinnamon is non-irradiated and free from any fillers, additives, or preservatives.

Sarah’s Delectables is the only brand that has tigernut flour as the first and main ingredient.  This gluten free flour is a superfood and tastes incredible.  With its natural sweetness, less sugar is needed.  We use panela, an unrefined, raw cane sugar, which also makes us unique.  Coconut oil is used in place of vegan butter, which uses a bunch of vegetable oils. Also, due to major issues with deforestation, no palm oil is ever used.

Absolutely not!  This is one of many reasons I support the Singing Dog vanilla company.  Also, their vanilla beans are all organically grown.

The dough can be eaten as a snack.  It is delicious broken up and mixed into your favorite ice cream.  They are decadent when dipped into melted chocolate.  The cookie dough makes for a unique filling inside cupcakes.

No way!!!  Your non-gluten free and vegan friends will be shocked in the decadence without the wheat, butter, and eggs!
