Organic Brazil Nuts
Brazil nuts are high in energy, contain good quantities of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. Their kernels, in fact, have been staple energy sources of native Amazonians even today. Brazil nuts hold exceptionally high levels of selenium. 100g of brazil nuts provide about 3485% recommended daily intake of selenium, rating them as the highest natural source of this mineral. Selenium is an important cofactor for antioxidant enzyme, glutathione-peroxidase. Just 1–2 nuts a day provides enough of this trace element. Adequate selenium in the diet help prevent coronary artery disease, liver cirrhosis, and cancers.
Our organic brazil nuts are large, chunky nuts with a buttery, mildly sweet flavour and creamy texture. Enjoy as a wholesome snack or added to salads or stirfries.
Organic farming uses no pesticides or artificial fertilisers and works with nature to build the fertility and health of our soil while caring for our environment. Organic farming has a low carbon footprint. Pure and simple, just the way nature intended.
We pack a wide range of natural food products on shared equipment including nuts, seeds, grains and cereals. This includes sesame, peanuts, soy and gluten. While we do our best to avoid any kind of cross contamination, this can sometimes occur and therefore any of our products may contain traces of nuts and gluten.
TWC source this product as Certified Organic (spec sheets available on request). We then pack it down in a yet-to-be-certified organic facility. This means it can't be sold as Certified Organic (just 'Organic'). We're in the process of gaining our very own organic certification and expect this will be complete by mid 2019. It's then that these very same high quality organic products will regain their 'certified' status on the TWC website. Some old labels may say Certified Organic on them. The product is no different whatsoever and the pack down area uses all organic cleaning agents. Clear as mud? ;)
