Native to the Amazon rainforest, Brazil nuts are commonly enjoyed for their buttery texture and nutty flavour and are one of the world’s most distinctive nuts in terms of flavour and appearance. While we do sell whole Brazil nuts, which are perfect for snacking and other occasions when you simply must have an entire, pristine nut, our Brazil nut pieces have all of the quality. They’re just a little bit, well, broken.
We source our premium Brazil nuts from the Amazon rainforest. In the rainy season, ripe pods fall from the trees, before being hand-cracked with machetes to reveal the nuts within. We work closely with local cooperatives to preserve the rainforest by encouraging sustainable farming practices.
Brazil nuts are a great source of vitamin A, vitamin E, and selenium, as well as natural, healthy fats and protein. Science has shown the incredible health benefits of vitamin E and selenium, including their ability to protect cells from oxidative stress - an imbalance of antioxidants and free radicals in the body. Brazil nuts are rich in nutrients that support healthy body function.
Natural, hand-cracked and of raw-food quality, our Brazil nut pieces are naturally broken up, making them perfect for adding crunch to muesli or making delicious butter. They’re also easy to grate and slice and can be a great addition to cakes, pastries and other desserts.
