Ramon Seeds

Teeccino’s Maya flavors feature roasted ramon nuts, Brosimum alicastrum, a nutrient-rich food of the Maya civilization. Referred to as the "corn tree" by the Maya, its nut was a staple food crop, capable of being stored for lengthy periods of time

The ramon tree is a member of the fig family, which also includes mulberry trees. At 130 feet tall, ramon trees are part of the forest canopy in Central American rainforests and frequently are cut down for lumber.

Ramon seeds are actually the seed of the ramon fruit. They have zero fat and are gluten-free, making it a nutritious addition to gluten-free flours.  

 

Ramon flour is very high in potassium, fiber and tryptophan, the amino acid that helps calm stress and anxiety. Fresh ramon seeds can be boiled like potatoes. The dry seed is roasted, ground into a flour and combined with corn for baking.

Ramon seeds do not contain tree allergens like almonds, walnuts and pecans. People with sensitivity to almonds can drink Teeccino’s Maya flavors instead.

Roasted ramon seeds taste very similar to coffee with some chocolate flavor notes. Ramon seeds give Teeccino its dark roasted flavors.  Click here for nutritional info about ramon seeds.

In partnership with ForesTrade in Guatemala, Teeccino has created new trade for villagers living in rural communities in the Maya Biosphere Reserve where they wild-harvest ramon seeds in the Peten Forest.
