Not Your Average Peanut!

Did you know what America’s favorite snack-nut is? Accounting for over two-thirds of all nuts consumed in the U.S, Peanuts come in at number one!


From bars to sporting events and peanut butter to sweet treats, these delicious little snack-nuts are hard to ignore and impossible to put down. But there’s a secret hiding in them…


Mold and Aflatoxins are toxic substances found in most peanuts on the shelves today.


Aflatoxins are “naturally occurring fungal metabolites that have been identified as risk factors for developing liver cancer,” meaning that they are carcinogenic compounds produced by the molds found in foods.1 These molds are caused by environmental factors such as growing, processing and/or storage conditions.


Sunfood Jungle PeanutsOur raw, organic Wild Jungle Peanuts are naturally free of mold and aflatoxins.

This is because these unique heirloom peanuts grow wild within the Amazonian rainforests, far away from civilization where they have been a staple food of the Shuar people for hundreds of years.


Our Wild Jungle Peanuts are unlike standard grocery store peanuts that have been hybridized to contain higher amounts of fat and sugar.


They’re also more appealing to your eyes and your palate; with a rich golden color and dark brown stripes, these beautiful heirloom peanuts have a delicate flavor that’s smooth, earthy and aromatic.


“I love these peanuts! they are both tender and crispy, are creamier and sweeter tasting than your typical peanut, and have a slight green taste to them, like freshly pealed chickpeas or green peas. They are so much fun to snack on. I have already ordered two more large bags and plan to continue reordering, as long as they are in stock.” – Elizabeth
