With a lower fat content than most other nuts, Cashews are a good source of copper, magnesium, phosphorus and other minerals.
Cashews are a crunchy, delicious addition to any stir-fry, and excellent mixed with raisins, dried cranberries, shredded coconut, sunflower seeds, and other nuts, such as almonds and walnuts, to make a fantastic homemade trail mix. Cashews are wonderful used as a base of many vegan desserts, ice creams, and sauces.
Cashews are not truly raw because the steam process used to remove the shell raises the temperature above the 115 °F raw threshold. Our nuts are not roasted after hulling.
Our Organic Cashews are sourced from an international organization focused on Organic, non-genetically modified and specialty foods. They focus on continuously improving and harmonizing our economic, social and environmental performance to positively impact our people, communities, planet and profit.
A word from our vendor: “The cashew processing facility employs 90 people in a rural area, enabling young people to stay close to their families instead of migrating to the city in search of work. By providing support and training in organic farming, we teach farmers how to increase their yields without the use of agro-chemicals, resulting in higher returns.
Fun Cashew Facts: Indigenous South Americans were removing the outer coating and roasting cashews long before the Europeans arrived. The Portuguese carried cashew trees back and planted them, spreading the cultivation and appreciation to other European countries. On any continent in the 1500’s, owners of cashew trees were considered very wealthy and important.
