General information

Cashew nuts originate from Northern Brazil. The cashew nut was primarily grown in Central and Southern Africa but now also cultivated in South-East Asian countries thanks to the favourable climate and soil conditions. It provides two fruits: the apple of the cashew and the nut of the cashew. The second one is the real fruit with a smooth shell and an edible white seed inside.

Health Benefits

Cashew nuts contain a high percentage of monounsaturated fat, folic acid, vitamin B1 and B2, and also magnesium, calcium and potassium which are beneficial to the nervous system. Cashew nuts are rich in protein and plant sterols which help reduce the absorption of cholesterol. Cashew nuts grown in tropical areas contain selenium due to the mineral content of the soil.
