    What is the difference between domestic peanuts and wild jungle peanuts?

    Unlike domestic peanuts, these organic heirloom jungle peanuts are low in aflatoxin, a type of fungi found in certain agricultural crops, and are a sustainable rainforest product.

    More about the Shuar Tribe:

    The indigenous group of approximately 4,300 Shuar people has title to roughly two million acres of primary forest. The Shuar are one of an increasing number of Amazonian indigenous groups who are organizing against oil exploration activities that threaten their territory. Although the Shuar have demanded that no oil development occur on their land, ARCO has the exploration rights to two areas in their territory that encompass 2.5 million acres. The Shuar insist that all communities affected by proposed development must play a part in deciding how traditional land is used. The Shuar are putting pressure on ARCO and the Ecuadorian government to recognize their right to self-determination.
