Discover the entire Barùkas
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 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 Baruzeiro. They are found in the Cerrado, which covers an area 3 times the size of Texas. It’s the most biodiverse savanna on the planet. Unfortunately, it is under severe threat, with millions of Baruziero trees being burned down to make way for soy production and unsustainable agriculture.
The growth of Barùkas nuts can not only help put an end to the deforestation but also reverse it. And it allows indigenous people to make a living off the land.

“I really love Barùkas. I have them at home and on tour with me always. They are a great source of protein for me when I’m eating really clean and training hard to go in the road all summer.”
“Barùkas have become my go-to-resource for just about every food intake issue that I might be dealing with on a daily basis. This is a game-changing product.”
“Not just the most delicious and most beautiful nut I've ever had, but quite possibly the healthiest natural food 'discovery' of the year.”
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-based 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 them.
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.
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 Barùkas. 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 Barùkas 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 Barùkas nut.
Foods considered exotic/ethnic/ that had been commercialized within the core members of the EU before its formation don't need to undergo a process called NOVEL FOOD, however foods that are being intended to be commercialized prior to the EU formation need to undergo this process. Barùkas is a new product, thus it needs to pass the Novel Food process. We are undergoing this process but it takes time to gather all of the documentation. We expect to have access to the EU market very soon. Meanwhile, local clients can start requesting their local distributors to look into Barùkas to be first in line to order once it is accepted as a novel food.
