The exotic flavor of the baru [bar•oo] nut has been described as a mix of almond, cashew and peanut – only better – and with less calories. But it’s the nutrients packed inside that’ll blow your mind.

- 24 grams of protein
- 26.3 grams of fiber (100% of daily requirement)
- 21.4 grams of Vitamin E (100% of daily requirement)
- 6.7 mg of Zinc / 2.6 mg of Iron / 150 mg of Calcium
- 228 mg of Magnesium / 1575 mg of Potassium
Barùkas are one of the healthiest nuts on the planet; literally a mini-cocktail of hard to find micronutrients and vegan protein. A single handful packs your daily fiber requirement. But they’re not just good for you, they’re good for the world. Barùkas 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 biome called the Cerrado (pronounced sahadu), which covers an area 3 times the size of Texas. It’s one of the most beautiful areas in the world.
The growth of Barùkas 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. It’s truly a win all around. For your health, the health of the planet, and the health of the world community.
