Food: Bertholletia excelsa has 18% protein, 13% carbohydrates and 69% fat. The proportion of fats is approximately 25% of saturated fats, 41% of monounsaturated and 34% of polyunsaturated.They have a somewhat earthy taste, much appreciated in several countries. The saturated fat content of Bertholletia excelsa is among the highest of all chestnuts and nuts, surpassing even that of macadamia. Due to the resulting strong taste, Bertholletia excelsa can often substitute macadamias or even coconut in recipes. Bertholletia excelsa removed from its shells quickly becomes rancid. Chestnuts can also be crushed to obtain oil.

Nutritionally, Bertholletia excelsa is rich in selenium, although the amount of selenium varies considerably. They are also a good source of magnesium and thiamine. Some research has indicated that selenium consumption is linked to a reduction in the risk of prostate cancer. This has led some analysts to recommend consumption of Bertholletia excelsa as a preventive measure. Subsequent studies on the effect of selenium on prostate cancer have been inconclusive.
