Brazil Nuts are another healthy nut high in protein, calcium, iron, zinc, and are one of the best natural dietary sources of selenium, with 2,500 times more than other nuts.
Did You Know? ....Brazil nuts grow near the tops of 150-foot-tall forest trees. The Brazil trees only grow wild, not cultivated, and their pollination depends on the presence of a particular bee. The presence of the bee, in turn, depends on the presence of a particular orchid...which doesn’t grow on the Brazil trees. As a result, trees which are removed from the forest simply stop fruiting.
