Extremely hight number of calories in brazil nuts puts this product at the top of hight calorific nuts. If you are on diet and you are looking for low-calorific nuts, brazil nuts seems to be a bad choice. It is easy to find something better among other nuts.

It is hard to find product with higher calories count in nuts. Similar energy amount have only such products as cashew nuts, chestnuts or coconuts.
