Buttery Soft Pili Nuts By Peele Co. Are Snacking Heaven
The "Golden Nut" from the Philippine rainforest is a health treasure.
Tropical rainforests are the most bio-diverse regions on the planet. They are home to an amazing variety of plants and animals, are the source of several healing ingredients in modern medicine, and produce many edible foods that have become mainstream in our daily lives for their flavor and nutritional power. Some of these products are very familiar such as bananas, coffee, cacao, acai, papaya, and turmeric.
Now a delicious buttery soft nut that comes direct from the rainforest in the Philippines is emerging as a new great superfood from the tropics. It's called the Pili nut and it's sometimes referred to as the "Golden Nut" for good reason. It's loaded with super high levels of vitamins, including almost 300% of the daily value of Vitamin E, and provides a complete protein making it the world's healthiest snacking nut from which everyone can benefit.
It's also an easy nut to eat and enjoy. It's about the size of an almond and has the consistency of a cashew. It tastes like a cashew and macadamia nut hybrid and some compare it to pine nuts. Because of the softer, less crunchy texture, you don't have to worry about it being hard to chew which is a big plus, making it pleasurable to eat.
Fortunately, you don't have to hike through the jungle floor or climb into the rainforest canopy to get this amazing nut. Peele Co., based in Las Vegas, offers Pili Nuts in snacking form to consumers across the U.S. in five great flavors: Plain Roasted, Honey Roasted, Sea Salt Roasted, Garlic Roasted, and Chili & Garlic Roasted.
Peele Co. is a family owned and operated business. Esprit Friedland, the founder, discovered the Pili nut while on vacation in the Philippines with his wife, Marissa, who has relatives there. Marissa handed Esprit a bag to snack on since it's an ordinary food staple in that area, especially in the Bicol region where the nut grows abundantly among the rainforest trees.
The buttery soft texture and flavor of the nut was so good, they decided to launch Peele Co. and sell the nuts in the U.S. It worked out and the nuts they brought from the Philippines became an instant hit. Friends quickly consumed the entire original stock. Then, successive reorders gave the first boost to the business and allowed them to expand and fine tune flavor offerings.
Pili nuts are NutritionAL Power
However, there's more to the Pili nut than the pleasure of eating them. They happen to be nutritional powerhouses so they make you feel and look good, too. First, they contain the largest amount of Vitamin E compared to any other nut -- almost 300% of the daily requirement. This is ideal for your skin health and appearance since it fights aging to keep your skin soft and youthful. Vitamin E helps with hair and scalp health, too, so that you have a lustrous appearance. Pili nuts also provide a high level of manganese which boosts bone health and reduces inflammation among other vital functions.
Pili nuts also are a complete source of protein with all eight amino acids. If you are on a Mediterranean, DASH, vegetarian, or vegan diet, it's an excellent way to boost your protein intake efficiently during the day without consuming meat. In addition, Pili nuts have a high amount of monounsaturated fats which are the healthier fats that can lower LDL cholesterol and fight inflammation.
Lastly, Pili nuts have a wide range of healthy minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium which are essential for many body functions including regulating blood pressure and aiding skin health. In fact, Pili nuts have the highest level of magnesium of any nut as well. With all of these powerful nutritional benefits, Pili nuts are considered the healthiest nut in the world to eat.
