Shelled, hearty, raw and nutritionally packed with protein, iron, and zinc – what more can we say about our Organic Brazil Nuts? A lot more! We’re nutty for Brazil Nuts – and here’s another reason why! Here in Montreal, where Yupik is located, Brazil nuts can be difficult to find, and organic Brazil nuts even that more difficult. We know there are plenty of you out there who encounter the same issues. Our solution? Equip you with our 500g and 1 kg bags to keep your cupboard well-stocked with these decadent, all-natural nuts! Like walnuts, Brazil nuts have patches of their edible, brown, papery skins on them. If you've haven’t tried these bulbous-looking, half moon-shaped nuts, they have a crunchy bite. This is the only nut we know of that requires a couple of bites before its gone! Regardless of their crunch, the texture of Brazil nuts is creamy and buttery.
Brazil nuts contain high levels of selenium, a mineral which is known to prevent coronary disease, and various types of cancers. Brazil nuts are also high in copper, magnesium, and vitamin E. Like most nuts, Brazil nuts are also high in fiber and protein.
