Brazil nuts are sweet tasting and an excellent source of selenium, a vital mineral and antioxidant that may help prevent heart disease. The inclusion of this natural source of selenium in our diets is important as it is an element in which Australian soils are notably deficient. They are called Brazil nuts because they're the seeds of a very large tree from the Amazon rainforest. Brazil nuts for international trade come entirely from wild collection rather than from cultivated nut farms.
Linseed, better known for its Flaxseed oil, is the richest natural source of plant lignans, as well as being an excellent source of soluble and insoluble fibre. It is also the richest plant source of Omega-3 fatty acids. We are becoming more aware of the importance of this essential fat in our diets and its role in protecting our bodies against the stresses we encounter daily. Omega-3 is as important as protein, minerals and vitamins and Flaxseeds contain 50% more Omega-3 than fish oil.
