Why You’ll Love Organic Brazil Nuts
Almonds, peanuts, macadamia nuts, cashews, and hazelnuts, are the most popular types of nuts out there but it’s time to get acquainted with NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts. While these might not be as notorious as other nuts you know and love, these little morsels are just as great and packed with tons of nutrition. To make things even better, they come straight from the Amazonian rainforests in South America and are a rich source of dietary minerals.
The health of NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts
One of the big reasons that people go crazy for Brazil Nuts (and nuts in general) is that they possess a high amount of healthy unsaturated fats (Omega-3 fatty acids), which increase good cholesterol in the body. By consuming nuts, you can lower cholesterol and improve general heart health by eliminating harmful omega-6 fatty acids from the body. As with many nuts, NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts also contains fat, but it’s the kind that is good for you!
These nuts pack in a dose of fiber, so don’t be fooled by the small serving size—fiber-rich foods are known for filling you up for longer periods of time, resulting in less of a desire to snack and easier to control weight. Additionally, fiber works wonders for digestive health since it keeps bowel movements regular and prevents bloating, gastric ulcers, constipation, cramps, and more serious problems like colon cancer.
NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts can also help improve skin elasticity. Brazil Nuts are especially known for their selenium content (a little more on that in a minute), and this can contribute to healthy glowing skin that keeps you looking young. Selenium activates certain antioxidants that fight against free radicals in skin cells that can cause wrinkles. Additionally, the zinc content in NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts can help to protect against acne, or in the very least lessen the appearance of breakouts. Take note that regular consumption of these nuts can help keep the skin looking clear from unwelcomed zits and pimples.
The selenium content in Brazil Nuts
Although Brazil Nuts are talked about because of their selenium content, it’s also important to know you can actually have too much of a good thing. Selenium is really only needed in small amounts, and going overboard at snack time can lead to brittle hair and nails from minor toxicity. A single one of NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts contains 95 micrograms of selenium, and usually only half that amount is needed per day, so be aware of how much you snack on these crunchy morsels.

How to enjoy NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts
When eating NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts, remember that it’s quality over quantity. Enjoy a few crushed up on a fresh romaine lettuce salad, blended into a nutty smoothie, or used to garnish a meatloaf or chicken. It will add an unexpected depth to practically any dish and a delightful crunch, giving a variety of textures to savor. Here are a few recipes that you can incorporate NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts into.
Because Brazil nuts are higher in fat than some other nuts, they create a rich and silky milk that is great poured over coffee, mixed in with oatmeal, or blended in creamy smoothies. All you need to do is use one part raw nuts to four parts water, and you can have a decadent homemade nut milk no time.
Instead of cashews, crumble up a couple of NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts to add a richer flavor to this bright salad. It’s a great option that works well as a light lunch or as an appetizer before dinner. Tart grapefruit, peppery watercress, and fresh herbs will awaken the senses, and the zesty watercress is also rich in antioxidants, helping you detox.
Indulge in NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts with a couple different ways. First, you can blend them up in the smoothie to give a fiber and selenium boost, or you could garnish a smoothie bowl with Brazil Nuts—along with ripe blueberries. Try finding something more green than this since it includes nutritious kale, spinach, and avocado, along with sweet strawberry and banana to keep it fruity and flavorful. Hemp milk and seeds provide pure vegan protein, making it a perfect way to energize in the morning.
This no-hassle recipe is perfect for a weekday dinner where you’re juggling family, to-do’s, and personal time. Garlicky seasonal veggies add a mouthwatering element to this juicy chicken that is topped off with a little pre-made pesto. Although, if you throw everything in the oven at once, the veggies will cook unevenly and what will be left are mushy potatoes. Instead, add in your veggies throughout the cooking time—potatoes first, then zucchini, and tomatoes for last. Crush up some NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts to add a bit of crunchy texture and nutty taste to compliment the savory flavors.

Delicious! I never found a bitter one in the whole bag.

These are very good
It only takes 3-4 of these to fulfill the DV for Selenium!
Fresh, tasty, unprocessed, nutrient-dense- what more can you ask?
These nuts are plump and fresh - with great flavor. They are my "go to" when I get a hunger craving.
I am happy that these are organic. I eat 7 of them every day a source of selenium.
Delicious Brazil Nuts
These Brazil nuts taste great, they are fresh and I appreciate the great price! I'll be buying the Thrive Market brand for now on because I trust the quality.
great for Hasimotos
When you have the autoimmune disorder of your thyroid it is imperative that you get adequate selenium and 5 Brazil nuts daily are the recommended dose. They taste great and have a satisfying crunch
Tasty and healthy
No denying the health benefits. Great to keep in a take along bag...in your car, etc. only takes a few to curb "the rumbly in your tumbly."
the best nut ever
I love the fact that I don't have to crack them to eat them and they are the only kind in the bag. My favorite nut to eat made even better.
Brazil nuts provide a good source of Selenium.So I'll continue buying this nuts
fresh and delicious
These brazil nuts are fresh, not soggy like some... They are delicious and the price is great.
Organic Brazil nuts! Can't get them at my local store. Good price too.
Nice, plump nuts. Glad to be able to find raw brazil nuts, with nothing else added to them. Good price too. My local natural foods store runs out of them often, so happy I found them at Thrive.
These are great!
What a wonderful wholesome snack to have on hand. Of course it only takes a few to feel satisfied.
Help your thyroid with Brazil nuts
Brazil nuts have selenium in them, and eating just 3 a day will help your thyroid. I was grateful to learn this, as I believe in naturopathic remedies. And they taste yummy, and are organic.
fresh and delicious
These brazil nuts are fresh, delicious and the best price around.
Not for me.
I bought these because everyone raved about how good they were and for a big bag they were a very good price and I've never tried Brazil nuts before. I love all nuts and seeds (raw and roasted) and so do my kids, but unfortunately we did not like these. They are a tad bitter and just not a very "nutty" nut. If you have never tried Brazil nuts before I would recommend sampling one from Sprout's or somewhere like that, that has them in bulk before you buy a whole bag. I guess I'll try baking these and adding a little salt to see if it helps the flavor.
This is a hard nut to find in our area. Love the convenience and availability
Definitely will buy them regularly
I like to take a couple of Brazil nuts for a quick break/snack during the work day. These are delicious and the price just can't be matched.
Great Raw Organic Brazil Nuts
So glad to find raw organic brazil nuts. This is my second order and am happy with the quality. I take it because it has natural selenium. As soon as I open the packet, I put it in the refrigerator to keep freshness.
I totally enjoyed them...Very good quality...Ithink I ate them too fast because they were that good...XOXOXO.

Every other nut was moldy and I had to spit it out. I do not recommend!
Beats cracking one each day. Only could find at December time in market. Kept in freezer. Last 2 years supermarket not have. So this is really fine to find at Thrive. Thanks.
- Donna Jackson
Most Brazil nuts you find taste slightly moldy, and it's because they are moldy! These are the first fresh Brazil Nuts I've found and they are great. By about month, about 15% of them will be slightly moldy, but still edible.
I bought these because The Fat Burning man recommended them! I never had them before and just got my 1st Thrive box last night! These nuts are so delicious and keep me full for hours! Definitely recommend!
Great tasting nuts
They were fantastic. The flavor was a great addition to my meals.
- Monica Spath
I never liked Brazil nuts when encountering them in a nut mix. I ordered these because raw Brazil nuts are a great source of selenium, and most folks are deficient. Surprisingly, they are much better raw than cooked and now love to eat them.
Very tasty. Great on yogurt.
- Monica Spath
I am very happy with the Organic Brazil Nuts and will be ordering more soon.
- Gerry Hyjek
These are the best Brazil nuts I've had. They have a nice crunch to them, taste fresh and are good sized.
