  • Materials: Organic Raw Jungle Nuts

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 - as different from regular peanuts as wild strawberry are from bland, commercial ones. They're also a nutritional revelation - containing all 8 essential aminos, plus methionine, with a whopping helping of the beautifying oleic acid. And they're 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 to top it all off, these wild-crafted peanuts are a sustainable rainforest product.

Why Wild Jungle Peanuts:

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.

The forests of the Amazon contain places where wild peanuts have survived undisturbed for thousands of years, including the southern area of Ecuador. These ancient varieties of peanuts offer unique flavors and appearances to consumers. Foods Alive wild rainforest peanuts have a beautiful striped color and smooth, rich flavor that many people find far more pleasing than mass grown commercial peanuts.

Many of the natural regions where wild peanuts grow are being threatened by modern development pressures, and the wild strains of peanuts are threatened along with the ancient communities that live in these forests. Foods Alive peanuts are harvested by the Shuar people of southern Ecuador, an area with incredible richness in biodiversity.

The indigenous group of approximately 4,300 Shuar people has title to roughly two million acres of primary forest. The Shuar are one of an increasing number of Amazonian indigenous groups who are organizing against oil exploration activities that threaten their territory. Although the Shuar have demanded that no oil development occur on their land, ARCO has the exploration rights to two areas in their territory that encompass 2.5 million acres. The Shuar insist that all communities affected by proposed development must play a part in deciding how traditional land is used. The Shuar are putting pressure on ARCO and the Ecuadorian government to recognize there right to self-determination.

Jungle Peanuts are great for snacking and go especially well with raw chocolate. Try a bag in your kids' lunchbox!

Wow, these are delicious. Complex, crunchy, and they have a freshness to them that “normal” peanuts don’t always have. Also feels good to support people whose work is part of the global effort to take care of our planet. Many thanks!
