This product comes from a sacred Mayan tree, pictured above. Brosimum alicastrum is a large evergreen tree with a history of human use as a food that extends from the classical Mayan period to the present. The B. alicastrum tree is widely distributed throughout Mexico and Central America.  Historically, every part of the B. alicastrum tree has been used by humans including the fruit, seed ("nut"), bark, wood, leaves, and latex. The seed in particular is widely recognized for its nutritious value. Additionally, various parts of the B. alicastrum plant also have been used in folk medicine, commonly used as a galactagogue (lactation stimulant). The B. alicastrum seed, which is referred to by different names depending on the region that it grows in, continues to be a part of the habitual diet of native populations of Mexico, Central and South America.

Roasted and ground Brosimum Alicastrum (Mayan) seed.
Suggested Use
Traditionally the Mayan seed is mixed with hot water and drank as a hot beverage, or added to breads and tortillas as a nutrition boost.
