Cashew Nuts

Cashew trees are mainly found in North-eastern Brazil, but these sweet and creamy nuts are now grown throughout the Americas, as well as India, Vietnam and Africa. Like all nuts, cashews are packed with nutrients which support our health in a number of ways. They are also delicious in any form, be they raw, soaked, roasted and salted (not the healthiest option, but very tasty!), crumbled or blended into creamy butters and vegan milk. Whatever your preferences, natural and organic cashews boast countless culinary uses. So be sure to pick some up for your household, your personal enjoyment and your health!

Unhealthy? Fat chance!

Although cashews are relatively high in calories (around 550 per 100g), two key points are worth remembering. Firstly, the natural fats found in nuts are now known to be extremely healthy, unlike various other vegetable fats and hydrogenated horrors! Secondly, many people will testify that nut eaters tend to have more fat in their stools. This not only suggests that not all of the calories are absorbed, but that nuts could perhaps help to increase the general elimination of fats from our body.

And of course: these nuts are not only well-known for their rich, sweet flavour – they contain a wealth of minerals, vitamins, nutrients and nourishing qualities. For years many dietitians across the UK, Europe and beyond have championed the benefits of enjoying cashews as part of a healthy diet.
