Brazil Nuts

Brazil Nuts are native to South America and are found in the Amazon rain forest. Our suppliers (local cooperatives) collect Brazil Nuts within the Amazon region of Beni and Pando during the period known as harvest, which begins in the month of November of
each year and lasts approximately 8 months.

Brazil nuts are rich and creamy, and are considered among the most delicious superfoods. They are high in protein, healthy fats, and selenium,a mineral with many benefits.
