Occurring mainly in the forests of Madre de Dios, the most biodiverse region of the Amazon forest, this cousin of the Cacao has an incredible taste and amazing aroma.

CAMU CAMU


Because of its high amount of vitamin C, it qualifies as superfood. It has 50 times more vitamin C than oranges. Clearly sour and intense, it is great for drinks.

CASTAÑA AMAZONICA (BRAZIL NUT)

It would need more than a four lines description to really grasp what the magnificent Bertholletia excelsa means for the Amazon forest. When we think of sustainable agroforestry this giant tree comes naturally as the long term goal.

AGUAJE

 

Coming from a naturally abundant palm tree in the Amazon forest, its taste is only surpassed by its nutritional value. A great amount of estrogen makes it ideal in the diet of breastfeeding mothers.
