Not long ago I was traveling through a remote area of South America when I came across this nut known to the indigenous tribes for millennia, but virtually unheard of anywhere else.

As a global superfood hunter for over 15 years, I'm convinced that Barùkas® nuts are the healthiest nuts on the planet; literally a mini-cocktail of hard to find micronutrients and vegan protein.

Barùkas nuts have more fiber than any other nut. And it’s simply amazing how many healthy micronutrients are in each bite.

I get so excited about their superfood qualities that sometimes I forget to mention the delicious taste and the crunch. Of course you have to try them to see for yourself.

Barùkas nuts aren't just good for you...they're good for the WORLD!

They represent an amazing opportunity to reforest our planet, and sustain indigenous communities on their land.

The trees that give these nuts are called Baruzeira. They are found in the Amazonian savanna, which covers an area 3 times the size of Texas. It’s one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Unfortunately, this immense biodiversity is already being deforested to make way for cattle ranching.

The growth of Barùkas nuts can help put an end to the deforestation and preserve the original flora. Not only that, it will allow indigenous people to make a sustainable living off the land.

Have questions about the Barùkas Nuts?
Check out our FAQ.

Barukas grow on Baruzerio trees in the wild in Brazil. There are no chemicals, pesticides, or artificial irrigation. While there is no organic certification (it's a very large area that's 3x the size of Texas), we consider them beyond organic since they are wild harvested.

Not at all, baru nuts are GMO free as they come pristine from nature and are not manipulated in a lab in any way.

Almost non-existent in Baru nuts. Laboratory test carried out have resulted in less than 1< ppm (parts per million) basis. Heavy metals are prevalent in all foods; the difference is the degree to which those levels are found.

Certain crops are grown in a manner that changes the local landscape; these ecological alterations influence the livelihood of insects and animals that pollinate flowers.  Most of the plant base foods we consume require the service of a pollinator to exist. Due to their wild nature, Baru nuts do not endanger the health of pollinator colonies but rather enrich it.

Nearly all crops use diverted irrigation to supply their water needs, especially most common nuts, since most are grown in water deprived areas where the water needs are excessive. Baru nuts only use rainwater for irrigation and very little water is used during the processing so the overall water footprint for baru nut is very low.

Barùkas nuts have more antioxidant power than any other nut!

Barùkas’ nuts ORAC score (a test measuring antioxidant capacity) is 21,100 µmole TE per 100 grams—that’s higher than any other nut.

Absolutely, Barukas are a concentrated source of valuable nutrients and micronutrients and body-friendly compounds that can be appreciated in a variety of ways every day. Discretion on your part should be considered if you suffer from certain food allergies.

Yes, everyone from children to the elderly can enjoy Baru nuts for their great taste and amazing nutritional benefits.

Yes, however caution should always be considered and you should consult with your personal doctor.

Absolutely, baru nuts can be enjoyed with or without the skin. It’s up to you! The skin is rich in bioactive compounds with positive health effects as well as other nutrients.

NONE, quite the opposite, the extremely rich fiber content and wide range of essential and trace nutrients in baru nuts can be a good cholesterol reducing food.

No, the roasting process enhances the rich nutty undertones while maintaining the extreme nutrition found in Barukas. Also, the nuts have anti-nutrients that are neutralized when the nut is roasted – even more so than when soaking. While it may seem that raw is always best, in this case roasting is best.

Considering the Barukas is not a monocrop but wild grown and harvested, there is no size discrimination during harvesting and processing.  Some trees receive more water and nutrients than others thus the size of the nut is larger.

Yes, collection cooperatives are the lifeline of the Barukas business. We negotiate prices on a year-to-year basis where both parties come out satisfied in the short and long term and fairly paid.

Barukas are a very local product and even within Brazil, outside of its native region, it is not that well known yet.

YES, a percentage of the fruits are left in the wild to feed the local wildlife and continue its natural reproduction cycle.  Trees that otherwise would be chopped down for wood now provide shade, sequester carbon, fix nitrogen, create oxygen, and give us the gold of the savanna, the incredible Barukas.

I hope you love them
as much as I do.
