The global chufa market size is projected to reach USD 5.7 billion by 2028. Global demand for chufa is largely driven by its alimentary industry application in the form of seeds and nuts. In addition, increasing consumption across different regions has been one of the major factors driving growth over the past few years.

Chufa is a water plant that grows in temperate climates like North America and Europe. Chufas contain about three times the amount of fiber as other nuts, making them an excellent option for people who need to add more dietary fiber to their diet.  On the basis of type, chufa is segmented into micro, small and large micro.


Micro chufa

Micro chufa is a small plant that grows under the earth. Micro chufas have lower glycemic index values than most other nuts, making them good options for diabetics or those who want to control their weight gain without giving up tasty food options. This makes them ideal in different types of dishes like salads, desserts, and baked goods, where they can provide fiber without affecting taste negatively.


Small chufa

Small chufa is a plant that grows on the earth. It has higher glycemic index values than most other nuts, making them a good option for diabetics or those who want to control their weight gain without giving up tasty food options. This makes them ideal in different types of dishes like salads, desserts, and baked goods, where they can provide fiber without affecting taste negatively.


Large micro chufa

Large micro chufa is a plant that grows under the earth. Large micro-chufas are best consumed as whole nuts because they have higher glycemic index values than most other nuts making them good for diabetics or those who want to control their weight gain without giving up tasty food options. This makes them ideal in different types of dishes like salads, desserts, and baked goods, where they can provide fiber without affecting taste negatively.

On the basis of application, chufa is segmented into the alimentary industry and pharmaceutical.


Alimentary Industries

Chufa is a common ingredient in alimentary industries. The plant has various applications in the food industry such as chufas do not have much flavor of their own and can be used to imitate other ingredients, such as almonds or coconut flakes for example. Chufa is often cultivated on small farms near coasts due to nitrogen-rich soil that also helps reduce coastal flooding. Chufa is widely used in the alimentary industry due to its nutritional value too, for example, it can be consumed as a substitute for butter or oil on bread, pastries, muffins, etc., in addition to being the main ingredient in popular food dishes such as hummus.



In the pharmaceutical industry, chufa is used in moisturizers and anti-acne creams for its soothing effects. It can also be combined with other ingredients such as honey to create a skincare cream that soothes inflamed or irritated skin. The chufa has been used for centuries as a food source, but it is also believed to have medicinal properties. One of the most notable being its ability to lower blood pressure. The Chufa nut contains carbohydrates, proteins, fats (including omega-fatty acids), minerals such as calcium, magnesium potassium, and phosphorus; vitamins A B C D E F K & carotenoids which help prevent cancer among many health benefits.

On the basis of region, the global chufa market is segmented into five key regions namely North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa. The largest region for chufa is North America followed by Europe and then Asia-Pacific. Latin America is forecasted to be the fastest-growing market due to a rise in demand for chufas as well as its medicinal properties which are used for skincare products like moisturizers or anti-acne creams.


The major driving factors for this market include heavy investments in chufa production, rise in demand from pharmaceutical and alimentary industries, strengthening of regulations on food safety standards, and increasing awareness among consumers about the negative impact of artificial sweeteners as sucralose. On the other hand, owing lack of knowledge or skillsets pertaining to harvesting techniques for cultivating chufas might hinder growth prospects during the forecast period.
