Wild Jungle Peanuts are beautiful heirloom nuts, wild-crafted by the Shuar tribe of the Amazon. These amazing heirloom peanuts are quite likely the original ancestors to all the commercial nuts grown today. Beautiful to behold, they're long and lean, with a deep chocolate-colored stripe.
Subtle yet rich, aromatic and earthy yet different from regular peanuts as wild strawberries are from bland, commercial ones. They're also a nutritional revelation containing all 9 essential aminos, methionine, the beautifying oleic acid, all the while loaded with protein, heart-healthy mono-unsaturated oil, vitamin E, and much more. Unlike domestic peanuts, organic wild jungle peanuts are free of aflatoxin and are a sustainable rain forest product.
The peanut, while grown in tropical and subtropical regions throughout the world is native to the Western Hemisphere. It probably originated in South America and spread throughout the New World as Spanish explorers discovered the peanut's versatility. When the Spaniards returned to Europe, peanuts went with them. Later, traders were responsible for spreading peanuts to Asia and Africa. Peanuts, also known as groundnuts, are now grown in 108 countries.
Jungle peanuts are great for treats in school lunches for your kids, plane trips, road trips, backpacking, camping, or as an after workout snack!
