100% Certified Organic Brazil Nuts
Brazil nut trees are powerful, enormous trees that live for 500 years or more in their native home inside the Amazon jungle. The large, crescent moon shaped nuts of the Brazil nut tree are a good source of protein and fiber. They are also widely known for being one of the richest plant sources of the mineral selenium, a powerful antioxidant.
The Sunfood Difference
Our Brazil nuts must have a rich, creamy flavor, and unlike other brands, are certified organic and verified free of GMOs. Typically found in trail or nut mixes, Brazil nuts are often hard to find themselves. Sunfood Brazil nuts are rare and low temperature dried, preserving the delicate enzymes and nutritional content.

Nice and crisp with a smooth taste. Larger than the store bought ones I'm used to from Central Roast. Only a few had a slight mould taste, and none were rancid. I've had trouble getting brazil nuts without a lot of rancid ones in the batch lately. No batch is perfect but this brand is above others I've tried. By the way you can't get too much selenium from brazil nuts. That is a myth. Dr Wilson writes that much research on selenium done in China determined that the toxicity does not occur until 4990 micrograms. But that could depend on iodine intake. China eats more seaweed than we do. Each brazil nut is about 20-50 mcg of selenium. Balance your selenium with iodine and copper. All help the thyroid. Iodine from dulse, kelp or cod liver oil; copper from cashews, lamb's liver, sage, basil, and oregano. Your thyroid and your hair will thank you. Also some copper in brazii nuts. Selenium is a mercury magnet. Great for detox. And selenium helps produce glutathione enzymes and superoxide dismutase which is a copper dependent enzyme. Selenium, copper and iodine all protect our body from radiation so if you are sensitive to your computer and wifi areas, you could be a little low on these minerals.

Not at all disappointed with Sunfood's range of nuts and the Wild Brazil Nuts are no exception - just beautifully free and a crisp crunch which I so enjoy.

The taste is better than the other brand, but we need to pay higher price for it.
Tasty but beware of selenium toxicity

Fresh and tasty. Have to be careful of intake due to danger of selenium poisoning which does not have a cure.

Brazil nuts are rich in selenium and improve cholesterol levels significantly, according to a recent study.
