We may be stating the obvious here, but we love nuts. Not only are they delicious, but they are packed with a number of nutritional benefits. Almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, macadamia nuts, pecans, pistachios, walnuts, (hey, we don’t discriminate), but if you walked the floors at Expo West the past 2 years you would have seen a new nut on the nutrition scene, the Pili Hunters Pili Nut.
What are Pili Hunters Pili Nuts?
Pili nuts (say it with me now, pee-lee) are grown on tropical trees that are native to Southeast Asia, but are cultivated, grown and harvested in the Philippines. Although pili nuts may be new to many of us here in the United States, they have been around for decades. One of the main reasons we are just starting to hear about them more in the states is for one reason - Pili nuts are the highest fat, lowest carb nut around. In fact, pili nuts have a 93% fat content, making them the highest fat whole food on Earth. (Crazy, right?!) Thanks to the growing popularity of high fat low carb diets (HFLC) like the Keto diet, Jason and Pili Hunters, the Pili nut is finally starting to get the attention and recognition it deserves.

Pili Hunters Pili Nuts are comprised of 93% fat, 5% protein and 2% carbohydrates and contain just one gram of carbohydrates per ounce (roughly ¼ cup of Pili nuts) while other nuts don’t even come close. Take a look:
