Azure Market Organics Cashews Raw Whole, Organic
Organic cashews are kidney shaped seeds of the cashew apple (the fruit of the cashew tree). Cashews are rich with antioxidants. They also have a lower fat content than most other nuts, and the majority of the fat content (oleic acid) is the same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. Studies show that oleic acid promotes good cardiovascular health and reduces the risk of heart disease.
The largest size NU170 50 lb is kosher and free from Dairy, Egg, Fish, Gluten, Peanut, Shellfish, Soy, and Wheat.
