Discover Barùkas nuts, exotic South American Supernuts that are amazingly good for you and good for the planet! GOOD FOR YOU: These nuts are known to the indigenous people in the Cerrado of Brazil for millennia (occasionally referred to as baru nuts in Brazil), but virtually unheard of anywhere else. They are an amazing source of vegan protein and have more fiber with fewer fat calories than any other nut. And did we mention micronutrients? They have higher antioxidant power than any other nut and 4 times more than blueberries. Barúkas nuts will ship to you in a resealable bag to lock in the freshness and the delicious flavor. GOOD FOR THE PLANET: By supporting Barùkas nuts, you create an opportunity to help reforest our planet and sustain indigenous communities on their land. The trees that produce these nuts are found in the Amazonian savanna biome of Brazil called the Cerrado. Most of the trees have already been deforested to make way for cattle ranching and unsustainable agriculture. But supporting Barùkas nuts can help put an end to the deforestation and preserve the original flora. And reestablishing forested areas can help provide immediate economic benefit to the indigenous villagers who will be able to make a living off the land through planting trees and foraging for nuts. Barùkas nuts are truly a win all around. For your health, the health of the planet, and the health of the world community.
GREAT TASTE: Barùkas nuts have a flavor that’s often described as a hybrid of different nuts, with notes of cocoa and popcorn and a satisfying crunch.
GOOD FOR YOU: Barùkas nuts have fewer calories and more fiber than any other nut. They’re also packed with 6g of protein per serving and 3x more antioxidant power than the common nuts.
GOOD FOR THE PLANET: Because they’re found in the forest, not grown on a plantation like most other nuts, they’re untouched by industrial pesticides and fertilizers, and require no artificial irrigation.
REFORESTATION: We plant a Baruzeiro tree in the wild for every 5 lbs of Barukas that are ordered, which helps protect the most biodiverse savanna on the planet.
PERFECT FOR RECIPES: Barùkas (occasionally called baru nuts in Brazil) are ideal for making pestos, granolas, pilafs, salads, and desserts.
