Navitas Naturals Cashews Whole Nuts 8oz.
Cashew's Latin name, Anacardium occidentale, refers to the unique heart-shaped, edible nut. The cashew tree, native to tropical South America, gained worldwide attention when Portuguese merchants began selling the nuts as a delicacy. Since then, all parts of the tree have been used for fuel, fiber, fodder, timber, dye material, medicine and food. The cashew tree thrives in warm tropical climates near the equator, both as a cultivated plant and on its own in the wild.
Product of Vietnam
Navitas Naturals Cashew Nuts come from the tropical regions of Vietnam, where the woody evergreen cashew tree develops small yellowish-pink flowers that eventually produce fruits. The swollen pear shaped fruits have a hard heart-shaped protrusion at the tip encasing the cashew nut.
We work closely with our suppliers to take great care in extracting the cashew nutmeats from the hard, bitter shell. To preserve valuable enzymes, healthy fats and the sweet delicate flavor, we use a special hand-shelled, low-heat extraction process. Navitas Naturals cashews are certified organic, kosher, vegan and raw.
Cashew nuts contain a rich portfolio of extremely beneficial oils including an ideal ratio of healthy saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Navitas Naturals Cashew Nuts are also a good source of plant-based protein—offering 5 grams per ounce! They also contain high levels of iron, magnesium (great for your heart), phosphorous, zinc, copper and manganese.
