Organic brazil nuts?
Our organic brazil nuts are grown without the use of pesticides or artificial fertilisers in Bolivia and are certified organic by the soil association. So many nuts are grown using these nasties and they do show up when tested.
Organic brazil nuts contain a high quantity of selenium making them a very valuable ‘food state’ source of this nutrient. Selenium is generally fairly hard to find in our normal diets as it is almost completely depleted from our soils.
At Detox Trading we sell a large range of healthy products for cooking which you can check out here.
It is generally considered to be good practise to eat no more than 6 brazil nuts per day due to the high levels of selenium. This is tricky because they’re so tasty!
