Flores FarmBrazil nuts - organic
Delicious, healthy raw quality Brazil nuts. An exotic delicacy. Brazil nuts are bigger than the other nuts, have a rather crunchy texture, taste a little like hazelnuts and Macadamianuts, and have a lot of healthy nutrients. They can be eaten, as is or incorporated as well in salty as in sweet recipes, but should always be consumed in moderation (rich in calories and selenium).
Several epidemiological and clinical studies have found that regular consumption (about 30g per week) of husk fruits, peanuts and oilseeds has a cholesterol-lowering effect, reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, gallstones in men, gall bladder ablation and colon cancer in women. Brazil nuts in particular are very rich in for many body functions and the immune system beneficial vitamins and minerals, especially selenium (ea elimination of toxins, anti-aging) and magnesium.
Brazil nuts are also called Brazil chestnuts, Amazonian nuts or Paranuts. They grow exclusively in wild in rainforests but are valued worldwide for their flavour and interesting nutritional intake.
