Cashew pieces are about as good as it gets when it comes to taste, texture and nutrition. Loved around the world for their pleasantly crunchy texture and delicious, subtle flavour, they’re a premium nut that are often the most treasured prize in blended mixes and cereals.
Cashews are the seed of the cashew tree, which grows up to 14 metres and takes three years to start producing seeds. Cashew trees produce beautiful cashew fruit, from which the seed emerges when it's ready for harvesting. After picking, the shells are carefully hand-cracked to avoid breaking the delicate nut.
Cashew nuts are a great source of magnesium, manganese, vitamin E, B1, iron and zinc - essential nutrients that help the body to metabolise and create energy from food.
They also contain the essential amino acid tryptophan, which the body converts into serotonin and melatonin, and antioxidants, which can help fight the effects of ageing.
Our cashew kernels are perfect for sprinkling on muesli, adding to blends and trail mixes, or just eating by the handful.
