Botanical Name: Anacardium occidentale
Certified Organic
Origin: Brazil / India / Vietnam
Cashew nuts are actually the kidney-shaped seeds that adhere to the bottom of a sweet tasting cashew apple, the fruit of the cashew tree, which is native to the coastal areas of northeastern Brazil. Cashews require a hot, humid climate to proliferate and are now cultivated in more than 30 countries.
Production: cashews are always sold shelled because the interior of the shells contains a caustic resin, known as cashew balm, which must be carefully removed before the nuts are fit for consumption. The process involves soaking in water, steaming, shelling, drying, cooling, peeling, and grading.
Qualities: cashew nuts, like most nuts, are high in protein and low in carbohydrates and packed with soluble dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and numerous health-promoting phytochemicals. They are rich in "heart-friendly" monounsaturated-fatty acids like oleic and palmitoleic acids, abundant in essential minerals like manganese, potassium, copper, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium, as well as a good source of B vitamins and folate.
Common use: the sweet and creamy taste and nutritional density makes cashews an outstanding addition to a wide variety of foods and beverages including smoothies, energy bars, salad dressings or sauces, soups or stews, stirred into oatmeal or spread on pancakes or in sandwiches, in desserts and as toppings, or enjoy straight from the jar!
Storage: due to their high content of oleic acid, cashews are more stable than most other nuts but in order to minimize oxidation we recommend storage in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator (or frozen to extend shelf life to about 1 year).

Very Fresh!!

I am a regular shopper of Organic Matters and find their products to be of outstanding quality. I recently bought 50 lbs of cashews as I make my own cashew milk, cheese, sour cream etc... The cashews are really fresh and excellent taste!

Cashews

Good service. The nuts are OK but seem dry and/or old?. I order with Rancho Vignola every year and I find the nuts fresher, plumber and oilier. I'm not sure if this is because of the age of the nuts or just because the nuts that I've ordered with OM are drier or organic or the variety - not sure???. This has been the same with almonds before. Anyways, the nuts are still good but I thought I'd let you know since you asked. I'll still order with OM for sure.
