OUR 62 HOUR ACTIVATION PROCESS
Like all nuts, seeds and grains, pili nuts contain phytic acid. If not removed through a pre-sprouting process, it can prevent optimal digestion and may cause bloating.
After maturing for 7 years, the tree bears dark purplish fruits when ripe – that looks much like a giant olive.
After dehydrating for days, the pili nuts are still raw, and is ready to enjoyed without any preservatives or additives!
The pili nut has a brown fibrous skin (testa) which is painstakingly removed by hand after pre-sprouting.
The hard shell (endocarp) holding the pili nut is individually cracked opened by hand with a special knife.
Pili fruit pulp is soft and creamy, traditionally eaten with fish sauce. The pulp is striped away by hand to reveal the hard shell.

Boost skin and heart health
Magnesium may increase the fatty acids in our skin to increase skin elasticity and moisture. It may also reduce inflammations and the risk of heart diseases.
WORKING WITH THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
You reap what you sow. By working with the local community and families in the Bicol region, we hope support their livelihoods. From the families whose backyards are filled with wild pili trees, to the women who help us to process the pili nuts - our engagement helps them put food on the table and also put their children through school.
