Cashew nuts contain high levels of magnesium, phosphorous, manganese and copper. Magnesium is an essential mineral. Cashews also provide the body with vitamin E, vitamin B1, niacin, iron and zinc.
The essential amino acid tryptophan contained in the nuts, converted by the body into serotonin and melatonin, helps to promote inner calmness, tranquility and satisfaction [1 and 2].
The name „cashew“ is a Tupi Indian word, used to denote the acajou tree or kidney-shaped tree, since the end of the fruit is similar to a kidney in shape. The actual cashew apple is consumed only in a few countries, as it has a very tart, bitter flavour which some people dislike. People of all ages love cashews because of their soft, mild nutty flavour.
Our organic Fairtrade roasted and salted cashews are very tasty and aromatic. They have a pleasantly soft, yet crunchy consistency, just the way they should be.
The cashew apple is a pear or paprika shaped stone fruit growing up to 10 cm in size. When ripe, the fruit turns yellowish orange to red. The cashew nut, (which is really a seed) is located at the end of the cashew apple. There is only one seed on each cashew apple and this is the primary reason for the product’s high price worldwide.
Origin and production:
We source our organic Fairtrade cashews from Burkina Faso in West Africa. Large parts of the area are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE cultivation and are worked by the FAIRTRADE small farmers living there. By cooperating with Fairtrade, the farmers have a secure, independent income and the Fairtrade bonus can be used for urgently needed projects such as clean drinking water, amenities for schools and improved infrastructure.
After harvesting, the cashew nut is carefully taken out of the hard shell in several steps. The hard shell and cashew oil underneath it are removed. The kernel is gently dried, then hand sorted thoroughly. Harvesting, drying and sorting are carried out in strictly hygienic conditions and with the greatest care.
After the cashews arrive at the works in Austria, they are lightly salted, gently roasted and packaged by us immediately afterwards. We use a special type of packaging to enhance quality, optimally preserving the nuts’ taste and aroma.
