CASHEW NUTS

Full of benefits from highly qualified sources

Cashew nut is the c-shaped seed that adhere to the bottom of the cashew apple, the fruit of the evergreen tropical tree (Anacardium occidentale), native to the coastal areas of northeastern Brazil. In its raw form the cashew kernel is soft, white and meaty. When roasted it changes colour and taste. Salted, it appeals to the palate as the most delicious nut.

Brazil is known as the center of origin of the cashew tree, with records dating back to the 16th century colonization period. Currently, the fruit is spread throughout all the tropical regions of the world. The English name cashew is derived from the Portuguese word of similar pronunciation ‘caju’, originated from the indigenous word ‘acaiu’ or ‘acaju’.
