Barùkas Baru nuts

a true nutritional wonder that provide a range of health benefits.

These three macronutrients are umbrella terms used for smaller molecules with similar structures. In the case of protein, these are amino acids. In nature, over 500 individual amino acids exist, but for human biological use, we need 20 (some say 21, adding selenocysteine), of which 9 are essential. Our cells can't synthesize these essential amino acids and they need to be provided from our diets.

Barùkas Baru nuts contain between 25-30g of protein per 100g, depending on the wild nature and the diversity of species not yet properly classified. Barùkas conducts its own nutritional profile research, done at third-party laboratories over the past 8 years to compile our own exclusive results.

How is the quality of protein in food measured?
