About Pili Nuts
Pili Nuts are an exotic kernel from a sustainable evergreen tree grown on the tropical Polynesian islands. Pili Nuts are larger than an almond, with a similar shape and a papery, brown edible skin.
Pili Nuts have a subtle flavor that is reminiscent of a walnut or pecan. It the texture of the Pili that really sets it apart from other nuts; Pilis have a creamy, melt-in-your-mouth feel, with a slight snap as you bite into them.
Benefits of Pili Nuts
Pili Nuts are a great source of healthy fats, protein, and beneficial nutrients. Pilis have all eight essential amino acids, and more magnesium than any other nut!
Magnesium is a mineral responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including muscle and nerve function, bone strength, regulating blood sugar and blood pressure, maintaining a normal heart rhythm, and for immune function.
Pilis also contain the following vitamins and minerals:

Pili nuts pack a big nutritional punch into one little nut.

There's something about the flavor of pili nuts that when processed down into pili nut butter,and you add in some raw coconut palm sugar, it tastes surprisingly chocolately, without a smidge of chocolate around! Now, if you take this pili nut butter and pour it into chocolate molds and chill, you'll have wonderful, bite size "chocolates", completely cacao free.
