Description

Organic Brazil Nut kernels have a rich creamy taste that can be used in desserts, muesli, cakes, nut mixes or taken just as it. These nuts help in loosing weight as they speed up the metabolism by converting basic thyroid hormone to its active form T3

Brazil nuts have a rich creamy taste, similar in texture to the coconut. Brazil nuts are the seed of the rainforest Amazonian tree Bertholettia Excelsa. They are sometimes referred to as Cream Nuts or Para Nuts. They are a natural source of selenium, protein and fibre.

How to use:

They make a great tasting snack on their own, roasted, salted or can be used in muesli, cakes, desserts or nut mixes.

Growing and Processing

The nuts grow in clusters of 12 to 24 inside 5 or 6 inch pods that fall from great heights when ripe, so harvesting can be tricky & dangerous! These brazil nuts are organically grown so no herbicides or pesticides are used during the growing process and no preservatives or additives are used during production of the nuts.
