Chuta® Value Chain

Chuta® nuts are free of phorbol esters and therefore edible. Focusing on a high protein and mineral content, they are particularly suitable for food production. During processing, the basic steps include the de-husking of fruits, the drying of nuts (in shell), and the de-shelling of the nuts. Processing residues can be reused for several high value products.
