What the heck is a Pili nut?
Canarium Ovatum, commonly known as the Pili Tree, is native to certain parts of Southeast Asia. The Pili nut (pronounced “peel-y”) is a rich, buttery nut with a unique taste like a macadamia meets cashew. Pili nuts are high in fat, magnesium and other micronutrients making them the perfect snack to support an active lifestyle.
The Pili nut has been known for many years throughout Asia – typically fried and coated in sugar. Our founder, Jason Thomas decided to put a healthy spin on Pili nuts by sprouting them. Hunter Gatherer Foods is the original U.S. company to sell sprouted activated Pili nuts.
