Attalea speciosa is a palm native to the Amazon Rainforest region in South America. The Babassu palm is the predominant species in the Maranh o Baba u forests of Maranh o and Piau states.This plant has commercial value because its seeds produce an edible oil called babassu oil, which is also used in cleaners and skin care products. The fruit is used to produce products such as medicines, beauty aids, and beverages. Traditional communities of the Maranh o region also produce a flour from the fruit and this is commercialized as a nutritional supplement.
