Delicately sweet yet crisp and delightful cashew nut packed with energy, antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins that are essential for robust health. Cashew, or “caju” in Portuguese, is one of the well-known ingredients in sweet as well as savory dishes worldwide.
Cashew nut intake has a cholesterol-lowering effect, in the context of healthy diets, and there is emerging evidence of beneficial effects on oxidative stress, inflammation, and vascular reactivity.
Cashews have a crunchy, buttery texture with a pleasant sweet fruity aroma. They can be relished as a garnish in various kinds of sweets and desserts. Cashews, along with almonds and other dry fruits, can also be used in savory rice dishes. They are an inherent part of our festive celebrations too.
