Cashews, Raw 500g

$18.90

Raw cashews are rich and creamy in flavour and texture and have many nutritional benefits! Cashews make a wonderfully rich nut butter.

Not only do cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts, approximately 75% of this is unsaturated fatty acids which is mostly oleic acid which promotes good cardiovascular health. They are high in copper, manganese, magnesium, tryptophan and phosphorus.

The cashew tree forms a brightly coloured false fruit that looks similar to a pear. The cashew nut is attached to the bottom of this fruit encased in a husk. Once harvested, the husk is removed as it contains a caustic resin, and the cashew nut, as we know it is revealed.
