Brazil nut (Bertholletia excelsa)

The Brazil nut is a dried fruit with high nutritional value. It represents a natural source of selenium, a mineral that the body cannot produce on its own, but obtains through the food it consumes. This micronutrient is essential for normal thyroid and immune system function.

It is enough to eat 1 Brazil nut a day to get the recommended daily intake of selenium. However, due to the high amount of calories, it is recommended to consume only 3 to 5 Brazil nuts per week.

They are super tasty and crunchy!
