Brazil nuts are among one of the richest sources of selenium, and their consumption can be comparable to that of selenium supplementation. They are also rich sources of other health-promoting micronutrients such as magnesium, zinc, and copper, high protein, essential fatty acids and bioactive compounds. Selenium is a potent antioxidant and is supports your immune system, thyroid hormone regulation and detoxification.

This brazil nut almond slice is going to be a sure fire hit in your kitchen! Perfect for those chocolate cravings, and suitable for vegans! The Vego bar adds a delicious hazelnut element that will hit that sweet spot.
