Production & Sourcing
First, whole Brazil nuts are harvested and shelled to extract the edible kernels. These kernels are then broken into smaller, more manageable pieces, typically using mechanical means. The broken pieces are then roasted to enhance their flavor and aroma, giving them a nuttier and more complex taste profile.
After roasting, they are seasoned with salt to add a savory element. The roasting and salting process is meticulously controlled to achieve the desired taste and texture.
