Organic Brazil Nuts, botanically a fruit seed rather than a nut, have a rich, creamy flavour. These Brazil nuts are sustainably grown in Bolivia and are Certified Organic
Brazil nuts have a high proportion of monounsaturated fat, which is a good fat, but they also contain some protein as well as being a good source of important nutrients including magnesium, zinc, calcium, vitamin E and some B vitamins.
Brazil nuts are most renowned, though, for their high selenium content, and are in fact the richest known food source of this important nutrient. Selenium is an essential mineral and antioxidant that is needed daily for a healthy immune system and it helps to prevent damage to our nerves and cells. In fact, just five-six Brazil nuts a day will provide your recommended daily allowance of selenium.
