A very pleasant crescent! With their light golden colour, characteristic crescent shape and distinctive flavour, cashews are one of our most versatile nuts. They're also one of the most unusual! Cashews are actually seeds that grow on the outside of cashew apples, the pulp of which is very juicy, but the skin is fragile, making it unsuitable for transport.
Cashew kernels are packed full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals essential for the body as well as protein and healthy monounsaturated fats. Cashews contain antioxidants, and are naturally low in sugars and sodium. They are cholesterol free with a high energy density and significant amount of dietary fibre, both of which have a beneficial effect on weight management. Cashews also contain a number of vital minerals such as iron, zinc, manganese, copper and magnesium. Iron is used to help transport oxygen around the body to produce energy and zinc plays a role in the immune system and is essential for beautiful, healthy skin and nails. Both copper and magnesium contribute to healthy bones. Copper helps to protect the body against cell damage, it is vital in energy production and antioxidant defense, producing greater flexibility in blood vessels, bones and joints. How To Use
How To Use
Our exceptionally high quality raw cashews are great for snacking and adding to salads and stir-fries, (though if you're looking for that characteristic crunch and flavour, check out our roasted varieties). They also have a unique trait. Because around 10% of their weight is starch, they are more effective than other nuts in thickening water-based dishes such as soups, curries, or making vegan yoghurts, cheeses and desserts. Their soft, moist texture makes them exceptionally creamy when used in this way. Something new to try!
