Excite the senses with the unique flavor, texture, and shape of the Amazon’s hidden secret: Macambo, part of the Theobroma plant family, is a brain tingling, buttery treat. A close relative of the Cacao bean, Macambo is valued by local people for its invigorating properties and impressive nutritional profile, providing energy for long days in the equatorial heat.
Macambo grows wild amidst the rainforest canopy, its precious beans protected by large golden pods. Macambo Beans are sustainably wild-harvested by women’s collectives; this traditional practice supports old growth rainforest preservation.
Macambo is a nutrient dense food that is composed of an impressive 25% protein and 31% fiber by weight. These macronutrients help your bodily functions thrive. This Amazonian bean also contains the same Theobromine compounds found in cacao beans. Theobromine is a natural alkaloid is linked to increased alertness and energy, similar to caffeine but without the crash.
It is known for its invigorating, uplifting effects on the body and mind. Macambo is perfect as a mood-boosting snack, thanks to its natural energizing, feel-good properties. Amazonian healers used Macambo traditionally to treat brain disorders, fiber deficiencies, and to provide sustained energy.
