About This Brand

Since 1968, NOW Foods has prided itself on being a leading producer of natural products, paving the way for the healthy foods and natural supplements in the mainstream market. Approximately half a century ago, entrepreneur Elwood Richard started a small chain of health food stores, known as Health House, in the Chicagoland area. With his scientific background evoking his passion for health foods and nutritional supplements, it laid the early foundation for his company. When the high cost of his stores’ health food products deterred business, he started his own natural products manufacturing company to supply his stores, which afforded him complete control over product cost and quality. From this moment NOW Foods was born. Today NOW is still owned by the Richard family and has grown to become one of the most identifiable brands, delivering a widespread line of wholesome and natural products. NOW has always remained true to Elwood’s original vision—to meet consumer need for...

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.

About NOW Foods

NOW is on a mission to provide high quality products that allow people to live healthier lives. The business started in 1948, focusing on natural foods when the industry was just gaining traction. Since then, NOW has been providing health-conscious consumers with premium and affordable nutrition options. Today, they’re still a family-owned company and they have a line of over a thousand dietary supplements, natural foods, sports nutrition, and personal care products. Considering the immense nutritional content of NOW Foods Organic Brazil Nuts, it’s no wonder they’re a part of their amazing product line.

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.

Brazil Nut Milk

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.

Watercress-Grapefruit Salad

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.

Green Smoothie Bowl

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.

Braised Chicken With Summer Vegetables

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.

- Ironforehead

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.

- Susan

These are great!

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.

- Tanda

fresh and delicious

These brazil nuts are fresh, delicious and the best price around.

- Terese

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.

- Cara

Good source

This is a hard nut to find in our area. Love the convenience and availability

- Billy

Taste great

Definitely will buy them regularly

- JOEL

Amazing Value

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.

- Dawn

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.

- Anna

Moldy

Every other nut was moldy and I had to spit it out. I do not recommend!

- Katie

Brazil nuts

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

Great nut

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.

- Brian

Amazing!

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!

- Jessica

Great tasting nuts

They were fantastic. The flavor was a great addition to my meals.

- Monica Spath

Love 'em

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.

- Glenn

Great nuts

Very tasty. Great on yogurt.

- Monica Spath

none

I am very happy with the Organic Brazil Nuts and will be ordering more soon.

Thank you....gerry

- Gerry Hyjek

These are the best Brazil nuts I've had. They have a nice crunch to them, taste fresh and are good sized.
