Brazil nuts are high in energy, contain good quantities of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. Their kernels, in fact, have been staple energy sources of native Amazonians even today. Brazil nuts hold exceptionally high levels of selenium. 100g of brazil nuts provide about 3485% recommended daily intake of selenium, rating them as the highest natural source of this mineral. Selenium is an important cofactor for antioxidant enzyme, glutathione-peroxidase. Just 1–2 nuts a day provides enough of this trace element. Adequate selenium in the diet help prevent coronary artery disease, liver cirrhosis, and cancers.
Our organic brazil nuts are large, chunky nuts with a buttery, mildly sweet flavour and creamy texture. Enjoy as a wholesome snack or added to salads or stirfries.
