CASHEWS: THE POWERHOUSE OF NUTS!
Cashew adheres to the bottom of the cashew apple, the fruit of the cashew tree. These Brazil natives have a delicate flavor and a firm, somewhat spongy texture. The cashew tree is now also found in other countries such as Kenya, India, Tanzania and Mozambique. It is no secret that nuts are jam-packed with nutrients and vitamins that are beneficial to your health.
With every delicious crunchy, yet smooth bite you take of a Cashew you can feel good knowing that you are indulging in a nutritious serving of copper, phosphorus, manganese, magnesium, Vitamin B1 and zinc. Not only that, but cashews have a variety of other health benefits:
- Cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts.
- Cashew nuts contain heart-protective monounsaturated fats.
- Cashews are an excellent source of copper which is useful for antioxidant defenses, energy production, bones and blood vessels and more.
