Barùkas nuts 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, Barùkas nuts (occasionally called a baru nut or baru seed in Brazil) are GMO free as they come pristine from nature and are not manipulated in a lab in any way.

Almost non-existent in Barùkas nuts. Laboratory test carried out have resulted in less than 1< ppm (parts per million) basis. Heavy metals are present 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. Barùkas nuts (occasionally called baru nuts or baru seeds in Brazil) 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 ORAC score (a test measuring antioxidant capacity) is 21,100 µmole TE per 100 grams—that’s higher than any other nut.

Absolutely, Barùkas nuts (occasionally called baru nuts or baru seeds in Brazil) 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, however caution should always be considered and you should consult with your personal doctor.

Absolutely, Barùkas 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 Barùkas 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 baru nut 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.

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 nut.
