Cashew (kash-oo, kuh-shoo)

the small, kidney-shaped, edible nut of the cashew tree (Anacardium occidentale), a native flora to tropical America.

Health Nut of the Equator

The cashew tree may be native to Northeastern Brazil, but it was Portuguese merchants who first introduced cashews worldwide in the 1500’s. Today, the small cashew tree thrives in warm tropical environments around the equator, and is often found flourishing in the wild, outside of cultivation. The fruit of the tree is known as a “cashew apple,” and found at the end of each apple (extending rather oddly like a nose), is the hard-shelled edible cashew nut. Navitas Naturals takes care to utilize a special low-heat extraction process while removing the nut from its bitter shell – thereby preserving the cashews' valuable enzymes, healthy fats, and delicate flavor.

The Power of Cashews

Cashew nuts are a satisfying and nutritious snack, and offer a rich portfolio of beneficial oils -- including an ideal ratio of healthy saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fats. Navitas Naturals Cashews are also a good source of plant-based protein, iron, and other trace minerals.

Superior Snacking

Because of their truly quality, Navitas Naturals Cashews are large and soft, and have a delicate, mild, and creamy flavor. They make an enjoyable snack whether eaten straight out of the bag, ground into a luxurious cashew nut butter, or blended with water to make a creamy milk alternative. In their whole state, cashews are a well-received addition to salads, stir-fries, and are a creative ingredient in desserts.

Organic Cacao - Certified Organic, Raw, Kosher

This time, we used two different laboratories instead of one, and utilized three different analytical methods: High Performance Liquid Chromatography , Capilary Electrophoresis with UV detection, and Titration. Despite the popular reports circulating the internet, the honest truth remains: even when processed at low temperatures, there is no vitamin C (ascorbic acid) present in cacao.
