The price elasticity of demand for the Brazilian nuts can be described as elastic for the changes in demand has a corresponding influence on the price.

What determines the price elasticity of demand for Brazil nuts? Explain in detail

Necessity and the dietary benefits of the Brazilian nuts as described by the nutritionist led to the increased demand for nuts at any price in the market. Other factors that could have led to increased prices could be derived from the temporarily reduced supply of nuts in the market as a result of ecological factors (reduced precipitation) for agricultural activities. Poor harvest results in a low supply of nuts falling below the demand requirements and the effect are to hike the prices. Environmental factors are either seasonal or can affect the production for longer duration like the cyclical drought effect of El nino that does hit the Amazon.
