What is the Brazil nut?

The Brazil nut, also known as castanha-do-pará or castanha-do-brasil, is a nut from the Brazilian Bertholletia excelsa, a tree in the Lecythidaceae family. These nuts are harvested mainly in the Amazon regions of Brazil, Bolivia, Peru and Colombia. They are highly valued for their delicate flavor and crunchy texture.

The history of the Brazil nut

The Brazil nut is native to the Amazon rainforest and has been consumed by local people for centuries. The indigenous people of the Amazon used these nuts as a food source and incorporated them into their traditions and medicine. During the 16th century, European explorers discovered the Brazil nut and brought it back to Europe. Over time, its popularity grew and it became a valuable export product for South American countries. Today, the Brazil nut is consumed all over the world and is widely appreciated for its nutritional and culinary qualities.
