Loving Earth's Brazil Nuts are grown and wild harvested by an indigenous group from the jungle around the Rio Madre de Dios region, bordering on Bolivia and Brazil in the south-eastern corner of Peru. They're particularly notable for their Fair Trade basis. With production of Brazil Nuts from this region widely condemned for its child labour practices, it’s of the utmost importance for us to know that our produce isn’t exploitative. We’re happy to report that the Fair Trade Labelling Organisation has audited the operation and confirmed that our Brazil Nuts are Fair Trade Certified. Eating these Brazil Nuts supports conservation of the Amazon jungle.
Brazil Nuts, despite their name, are botanically speaking a seed. They are a great source of Omega 3 and 6 as well as Vitamin E, thiamine, copper, manganese, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous and zinc. Interestingly, Brazil Nuts have been found to be one of the richest dietary sources of selenium.
Activating the nuts reduces enzyme inhibitors, making them easier to digest. This helps the body absorb the nutrients more easily.
