Raw Brazil nuts are not just a popular snack; according to one horticulturist at the New York Botanical Garden, the Brazil nut and the tree from which it comes may be the most important economical plant in the Amazon's vast (but shrinking) rainforests.
Still harvested by hand, the Brazil nut enables indigenous populations to retain their cultures and thrive in the modern world. Nutritionally, Brazil nuts have a lot to offer. They're a good source of monounsaturated fatty acids, selenium and vitamin E. Plus, they're naturally gluten-free, organic and raw!
