Brazil Nut (Bertholletia excelsa)

Also called Para Nut, Butter-Nut, Cream Nut or Castanea. The hard walled fruit of the tree is 8-18cm in diameter and is globular in shape, resembling a large coconut. This woody capsule contains 8-24 nuts or seeds which are arranged in it like sections of an orange. Each nut has a very hard shell and is three cornered in shape. Brazil nuts are high in fat and protein content and taste somewhat like almond or coconut.

Brazil nut kernels are sweet tasting and an excellent source of protein. Brazil nuts are the richest natural source of selenium, a powerful antioxidant.

Linseed, better known for its Flaxseed oil, is the richest natural source of plant lignans, as well as being an excellent source of soluble and insoluble fibre. It is also the richest plant source of Omega-3 fatty acids. We are becoming more aware of the importance of this essential fat in our diets and its role in protecting our bodies against the stresses we encounter daily. Omega-3 is as important as protein, minerals and vitamins and Flaxseeds contain 50% more Omega-3 than fish oil.
