Save the Amazon! Eat a Brazil Nut!
Brazil Nuts are the only commercial dried fruit found exclusively in the Amazon forests. Consuming them helps towards the preservation of the rainforest since it is illegal to cut down trees in areas where Brazil Nuts are harvested.
Peruvian Brazil Nuts are a flagship product for White Lion Foods. These are sourced from various rainforest-concessions within the state of Madre de Dios, in the heart of the amazon rainforest, close to the borders of Brazil and Bolivia.
Brazil Nuts Nutrients
Brazil nuts are renowned 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. In fact, just five-six Brazil nuts a day will provide your recommended daily allowance of selenium.
Brazil Nuts are also rich in calcium, copper, zinc and Vitamin E. They can be consumed as snacks as well as in bakery and desserts.
