Brazil nuts are tree nuts native to the Amazon rainforest in Brazil, Bolivia, and Peru. Their smooth, buttery texture and nutty flavor are typically enjoyed raw or blanched. These nuts are energy dense, highly nutritious, and one of the most concentrated dietary sources of the mineral selenium.
Brazil nuts are native to the Amazon rainforest, which not only includes Brazil, but they also come from Bolivia, and Peru.
These particular Brazil nuts were just imported directly from Peru, so they are super fresh right now.
Brazil nuts are rich in selenium, with just one nut containing 96 mcg, or 175% of the RDI. Most other nuts provide less than 1 mcg, on average. Angela has thyroid issues, so she has a bag of Brazil nuts here. I believe that she takes one nut per day just so she gets her daily Selenium requirements.
Additionally, Brazil Nuts have higher concentrations of magnesium, copper, and zinc compared to most other nuts.
