Organic Brazil Nuts
I was very happy to find Brazil nuts at a reasonable price - and even organic! I don't think I have ever seen organic Brazil nuts available where I live in Ontario, Canada. Yours are delicious and fresher than store bought shelled Brazil nuts. My husband and I eat one Brazil nut each per day, partly because we love the taste and also as a source of selenium, an antioxidant. We are careful to eat only one or two nuts per day in order to avoid ingesting too much selenium. I have read that a Brazil nut can vary from 25 mcg. per nut to 250 mcg.. As 400 mcg/day is considered a safe daily upper limit, we stick to eating one or two a day, knowing that we are also getting tiny amounts of selenium from other food sources. This was my first order from OM Foods and I really appreciated the availability of such a wide range of organic products. I'll be ordering again!
The sign of a true nut!!!!
Well what can you say about Brazil nuts...except that there the only nut left [i believe] on the plant that has not been tampered with ,they still wild craft these nuts. I ordered on the Easter Friday and received the order on Tuesday,which means they sat in the warehouse for 4 day,s...The first thing i noticed when i opened the bag and took one out was how much oil had seeped from these nuts...try to get that from any other nut...Most nuts have the oil extracted and than sold....But these Brazil nuts are wonderful.. The best site i have found so far in b.c...Thanks OM,I Iwill be ordering again soon
Best Quality I've Had
I've tried various brands of brazil nuts, and most of them taste moldy or like they've gone bad. I don't know what these guys do with their brazil nuts, but they're some of the best I've had. No bad taste, just fresh, crunchy and delicious.
excellent fresh cashews. quality product!
