Drizzle on salads or bread, or use in cooking for a hearty dose of Omegas 3, 6, and 9.

Also an excellent source of magnesium, thiamine, and selenium.
Technically, Brazil nuts are seeds, since the meat of the nut separates from the shell when split. They grow only in the Amazon rainforest, where a single species of bee is able to pollinate the trees due to the coiled hood and complexity of the flower. Trees can reach 100 to 150 feet in height, with trunks from 3 to 6.5 feet in diameter, making them among the largest in the Amazon.
