If you love peanuts and cashews, beeline for Baru Nuts! Hailing from the Brazilian savanna, the Baru nut has less calories and more fiber and protein than almonds, walnuts and Brazil nuts. These nutritious nuts taste like a cashew-peanut hybrid and are downright delicious. Enjoy Barus straight out of the bag as a filling snack, tossed over salad or blended into smoothies for a generous source of plant-based protein. We lightly salt and roast this nut in-house for freshness you can taste.

Baru Nuts: The Backstory

Besides its high nutritional value and delicious flavor, the Baru nut has been essential to the economical and ecological support of the Brazilian Savanna—specifically an area known as The Cerrado. Before the Baru nuts’ health benefits were recognized, the people of The Cerrado were deforesting the savanna at an alarming rate for charcoal mining and cattle ranching—central sources of economic stability in the area. With the Baru nut catching the attention of nutritionists in the U.S., the Cerrado community has begun to maintain existing trees to harvest Baru.This change has helped improve the ecology of the region.

Barus also happen to have a lower water footprint (that is, the water required to grow and transport the nut) than almost all other nuts and seeds, making it a pro-planet pick.

First time trying these. Could use more salt and husk is a pain to get off. You get use to the soft texture after a while. Taste is good.

They're high quality, but the grainy texture and mild flavor don't really work as a snack for me, though they might hold up better as an ingredient in a vegetable-based meal.
