PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Shelled, hearty, raw and nutritionally packed with protein, iron, and zinc – what more can we say about our Organic Brazil Nuts? A lot more! We’re nutty for Brazil Nuts – and here’s another reason why! Like walnuts, Brazil nuts have patches of their edible, brown, papery skins on them.
If you haven’t tried these bulbous-looking, half moon-shaped nuts, they have a crunchy bite. This is the only nut we know of that requires a couple of bites before it's gone! Regardless of their crunch, the texture of Brazil nuts is creamy and buttery. We often recommend tossing our whole shelled organic Brazil nuts with other nuts, such as our Organic Almonds and Organic Dry Roasted Cashews to add variety to your snacks and meals. Turn up the volume by adding any one of our Organic Chocolates!

CULINARY TWIST: COAT IT IN CRUMBS! Want to turn an ordinary weeknight dinner into something special?
