What are the Benefits of Cashew Nuts?
The surprising fact about Cashew nuts (also named Caju or Kaju) is that they are actually the "seeds" of cashew apples.
Cashews are a great competitor for other nuts given their high content of oleic and palmitoleic acids, micronutrients, minerals, vitamins, and other essential fatty acids.
Nevertheless, being less of a "nut" works in favour of the cashew nuts in this case.
The advantage of the cashew nuts compared to other types of nuts is that the amount of fats is lower, and thus they represent an excellent ingredient for improving the health of your heart, bones, nerves, muscles and teeth.
Is it Safe to Eat Raw Cashews?
While raw cashew nuts are cheaper and more affordable, they need to undergo a roasting or steaming process.
The reason for that is that raw cashew nuts contain a toxin (urushiol) that can cause some health problems. To make cashews safe to eat, ensure you roast or steam them nuts before you consume them.
How to Eat Cashew Nuts
Cashew nuts can be eaten as such. Add a pinch of salt or spice them up with your favourite spices, and enjoy them as a healthy snack on their own.
Or you can get as creative as trying it as an ingredient for cashew "cheese," cashew "butter," cashew "ice cream," or cashew "milk."
