13 bags of our famous Spicy Chili Wild Sprouted Pili Nuts for the price of 12!
If you like a touch of spice, our Spicy Chili Wild Sprouted Pili Nuts are the way to go! We added just a small hint of local Siling Labuyo Filipino chili to our original recipe, resulting in an exciting, spicy twist to the Pili nut’s buttery flavor.
The Siling Labuyo is a unique and little-known chili pepper native to the Philippines. Very similar to the thai chili, it was once thought to be the spiciest pepper in the world. Many folk legends persist about the Siling Labuyo– Filipino locals claim it can be used to treat sore throats, stomach problems, arthritis, and rheumatism. Whether you believe the myths or not, the Siling Labuyo chili adds adds a deliciously spicy flavor to our nutrient-packed nuts!
All of our pili nuts are wild harvested by hand from the Filipino rainforest, placing minimal strain on natural resources and providing local communities with an incentive to preserve the health of their wild spaces. After harvest, the nuts are then sprouted and activated through a soak in salt water and dehydration. The activation process breaks down the phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors contained within raw pili nuts, allowing the body to access the nutrients inside much more easily. The result is a super-nut with a rich buttery taste, containing a huge range of essential vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, manganese, and Vitamin B1, and the highest fat and lowest carbohydrate content of any nut. This compact nutrition and delicious flavor makes the pili nut a great take-along snack for long adventures as well as healthy staple in any balanced diet.
FYI! You may notice the discrepancy in our serving sizes for our 1.85oz bags of Pili nuts. FDA regulations forced us to label our package as a single serving at 30g, where the total bag weight is 52g. You can calculate the correct nutrition facts by multiplying the numbers by 1.73. For example, each bag is actually 364 calories. We apologize for the confusion and will have the issue resolved before the end of the year.
To ensure freshness we recommend storing your Pili nuts in the refrigerator. While some love the crunchy texture of cold Pili's we recommend eating them at room temperature.
