Brazil Nuts


As their name suggests, Brazil nuts come from Brazil.
In the Amazon rainforests, the Brazil nut tree can grow up to 40 meters in height and it can have a trunk 1 to 2.5 meters in diameter.
The fruit of Brazil nut tree resembles a coconut endocarp in size and it weighs about 1-1.5 kg. It has a hard woody shell which contains 8-24 seeds. It was first mentioned in the 16th century, when an unknown Spanish general gathered the fruits of The Brazil tree for his weary soldiers, who quickly recovered after consuming these nutrient nuts.
Brazil nut contains 14.3% of proteins, mostly Methionine, which makes it the biggest natural source of that Amino acid.
If Brazil nuts were combined with other nuts - especially with cashews or pistachios, or with grains and legumes, we would get the ideal composition of all the necessary Amino acids in their primary, natural form. Because legumes contain very little Methionine, but they’re rich in Lysine, they are great "partners" with Brazil nuts, when it comes to food preparation. Imaginative meals will not only be healthy and nutritive, but also very tasty. These nuts can be used to prepare excellent sauces, creams, pastes, milk, ice cream and cakes. Brazil nuts are rich in Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, Calcium and Magnesium. Possibly harmful effects of high percentage of fat in them are neutralized by Vitamin E and Selenium, which are powerful antioxidants, so Brazil nuts, and all other nuts, present valuable and healthy source of essential fatty acids.
