Morgenland Brazil nuts - organic
100 g

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.

Peanuts, corn, nuts, cereals, leguminous vegetables ... may be contaminated with a mouldiness, invisible to the naked eye, which produces a carcinogenic toxin called aflatoxin. To make this mouldiness turn out, both heat and humidity are necessary and therefore it mainly concerns products grown in hot and humid countries. Fortunately European legislation was strengthened in 1999 by lowering permitted aflatoxin levels and since 2003, Europe imposes systematic control of the batches, which must be returned or destroyed in case of non-compliance. Because of this fact the of cultivation- and conservation-conditions in the countries of origin have been greatly improved in order be able to offer quality products henceforth. One of the possible and often used preventive measures is a quick drying of the harvests by roastening.
