Product Brazil nuts


The name of the species, in honour of the French scientist Claude-Louis Berthollet, was first published in 1807 by two botanists, Humboldt and Bonpland, in Plantaeaequinoctiales. In 1874, Miers, in Trans. Linn. SoC. London, presented it instead under the name Bertholletianobilis. In English, Brazil nuts are also known as Brazilnut, Creamn, Paranut, and Butter nut. However, these nuts are called by many different names worldwide: Castanha-do-Pará, Castanheira rosa, Castanha-do-Maranhao, Amendoeira-da-América, Castanha-do-Brasil in Portugal, Tocari, Juviá, Touca, Tucá in Brazil, Castanã del Brasil, Castanã mansa, Castanã verdadeira, Nuez del Brasil in Spain, Castanã in Peru, Noix du Pará, Noix du Brésil in France.

The empty shells of the fruit, also called 'Monkey Cups' in some areas, are used by the natives to carry small fires, whose smoke keeps the insects at bay. Farmers also use them to collect the rubber that comes out of the incisions in the bark of the trees of the same name. They are also used for drinking. Moreover, biologists have recently found out that the empty shells left on the ground by agoutis, become the ideal environment for a number of interactions between different species of invertebrates.

Their remarkable nutritional properties are the perfect match for a pleasant taste. Brazil nuts are indeed rich in proteins, contain no cholesterol, are a source of essential amino acids and vitamins and boast a high concentration in selenium. They can be virtually considered a real food supplement, as well as an effective antioxidant fighting against free radicals, that are responsible for cell aging. Brazil nuts have a higher oil content (72%) than almonds (53%) and walnuts (55%). Brazil nut oil is light yellow in color and pleasant to smell. It’s scarcely used worldwide because of the lack of knowledge with respect to its composition. Few exhaustive studies on the subject of Brazil nut oil have been carried out. Vegetable oils are mostly made of triglyceride mixtures (glycerol molecules with the addition of three molecules of fatty acids).    




The debate is still open on whether Brazil nuts plantations will be viable in the future. Up to now, the attempts at growing tropical trees outside their natural growth zone have failed. The majority of Brazil nuts come from wild trees. In the last few years, the production of nuts has decreased because of deforestation, of the harvesters moving from the forest to big cities, of the flooding of some areas of production and of the reduction in pollinating bees, the latter being caused by the fires in the dry season.

As a result, attempts at growing Brazil nuts have been carried out and documented in many parts of the Amazon rainforest. When setting up a Brazil nut plantation, it is crucial to consider the seeds’ origin, since the crossing of plants sharing the same genes makes for poor nuts production. Seeds are made to germinate by putting them in sandy, wet soils. After that, embryos are removed through the opening which forms along the natural seed’s section. The embryos develop into new plants in approximately 20 days and are subsequently moved to pots. About 2 years after the new plant has been transplanted in the field, grafting can be performed.

You can store Brazil nut pieces in dry, cool places, away from sources of heat and moisture. Here are 4 useful tips: 

  • The ideal condition for keeping Brazil nut pieces is in a refrigerated environment. Nuturally Brazil nut pieces can also be stored easily at room temperature during the winter season due to low temperatures. During summer, however, it is advisable to store the product in the refrigerator or in the coolest possible environment as increased temperatures could encourage decay. 
  • The ideal container for the storage of Brazil nut pieces is glass. Indeed, because of its composition it is impervious to chemical agents and gases, and, as it has excellent insulation properties, it holds the initial temperature for longer than other materials. It is even better if the glass is coloured: using coloured glass blocks the entry of certain wavelengths of light (including ultraviolet), and thus certain nutritional and organoleptic characteristics remain unaltered.  
  • The type of closure of the container is also important as an airtight cap ensures that the food is protected from excessive contact with oxygen that can lead to lipid oxidation and encourage the growth of aerobic bacteria. 
  • The best kind of storage environment is one which is well ventilated because ventilating the premises keeps internal humidity under control, which otherwise could escape from windows, thereby guaranteeing the right balance to lessen the onset of mould.
