Have you ever wondered where these delicious little nuts come from? They don’t just appear in the crescent shape that we’re so familiar with!

Sprouting like a tail from the bottom of an oddly-shaped fruit, the cashew, in its natural state, is actually very poisonous.  Instead, they need to be carefully processed through drying and roasting, which rids the nuts of toxic oils and allows the shell to be removed easily.

While Vietnam, India, and Nigeria are the largest producers of cashew nuts in the world, these nuts find their humble origins in the tropical regions of Brazil. Global production of cashew nuts amounts to over 2 MILLION tons of raw nuts with an estimated value of over US$ 2 billion. 

Due to its increased popularity over the past few years, the price of cashews has soared since the beginning of 2016 with a price hike of over 60% in Vietnam. 

People don’t just eat cashews as snacks, but use them in Asian cooking, and now increasingly in vegan and plant-based recipes, protein bars, and even lactose-free milk. This is because cashews are not only delicious, but boast a ton of health benefits as well, including:

  • Heart protective monounsaturated fats which help stabilise blood sugar, control hunger and manage weight
  • High in protein
  • Contains vitamins E, K, and B6, which are great antioxidants for the body
  • Copper for antioxidant defenses, energy production, bones and blood vessels
  • Muscle and nerve health with magnesium
  • Zinc for a boost in immunity
  • Reduced risk of anaemia as a source of dietary iron

At The Whole Kitchen, we use cashews in most of our products from nut mixes, to granolas and energy pearls. 

How do you like to eat your cashews?

    Hello friends, am here to say an awesome and amazing testimony about a Great spell caster that helped me. My name is Vivian Anderson from the Canada. Getting my Lover back is what i least expected and could never imagine. I and my Lover have been married for five years and we have been living happily but all of a sudden he changed completely and turned away from me and i never knew what was going on, i tried to ask him but he refused to tell me what the problem is, and as time went on he sought for a divorce. I was so worried and confused, and i did all my possible best to get him back but it wasn’t easy, i thought all hope was lost, and during my search for a way out, a friend of mine who had similar problem told me about a great spell caster called Dr ogugu who helped her get back her Friend also. I never believe in spell casting in my entire life or a magic because i never thought it will work but i tried to give this man a chance and to my greatest surprise, He cast a spell to bring back my Lover, but today we are back together into a lovely home with two beautiful kids.Thank you Dr 0gugu We are happy together again and i am using this opportunity to tell anyone passing similar situation Or if you need Cure to contact him on +2347011196745 E-mail::
