Pili Hunters pili nuts in all their natural flavor, exactly as nature intended. These are hand-harvested, sprouted, and wild - delightfully simple. All Pili Hunters nuts are sprouted to maximize bioavailability, and are carefully selected from wild stands of pili trees in the jungles of the Philippines.
Pili Hunters are incredibly buttery and tender, a true melt in your mouth experience. They have a unique nutty flavor, sometimes described as a cross between a pine nut and macadamia nut. Incredibly delicious and nutritious, these nuts make an awesome on-the-go snack, or addition to a recipe, salad, or entrée! Pili Hunters are Earth's Perfect Nut. As the highest fat, lowest carbohydrate nut on the planet, pili nuts pack powerful nutrition from their energy density and variety of hard-to-find vitamins and minerals from rich volcanic soil.
While kite surfing in the Philippines, Jason Thomas - outdoor endurance athlete and founder of Pili Hunters - tried the delicious pili nut for the first time. He was so blown away by the rainforest-grown pili nut’s rich, buttery texture, and unique flavor that he started sharing it with everyone he knew back home. Jason’s mission became clear: to introduce U.S. consumers to the nutritious, delicious, and sustainable Filipino pili nut. From selling his first batch out of the back of his pickup truck to now offering an entire product line both online and in select retailers, Jason’s spirit of adventure is front and center in everything we do.
Pili Hunters are not certified organic; they are sustainably wild harvested. Our pili nuts never see pesticides, additives, or preservatives. Pili Hunters products are naturally pollinated, rainwater fed, and grow natively. As a monsoon resistant organism, Pili trees are special. The harder the wind blows, the more fruit/nuts they produce. Production of pili nuts is decentralized, with small farmers and harvesters carefully and sustainably selecting from stands of wild pili tree in their backyards or local jungle.
