Brazil nuts are the highest-known dietary source of selenium - you only need two nuts to get your daily dose of this essential mineral, which your body needs to fight inflammation, maintain a strong immune system, regulate mood and regulate thyroid function. They are also rich in protein, fibre, heart-healthy unsaturated fatty acids, zinc and vitamin E.
Our organic Brazil nuts are very interesting for their positive harvest impact and sustainable aspect. By consuming Brazil nuts, you are contributing to protect the amazonian rainforest and supporting the livelihood of forest-based communities. Brazil nuts grow exclusively in pristine rainforest, on trees that are part of a diverse and undisturbed ecosystem. The fruits are collected by farmers on the forest floor right where they drop, which provides them with an important source of income and an economic incentive to preserve the delicate rainforest that surrounds the nut trees. Brazil nuts are therefore a truly wild and sustainable organic food.
