“Cashew nuts are crunchy and full of health benefits!” –Paul Ebeling

All over the world, these delicious exotic nuts are found in many cuisines as they add flavor and texture. They are the 4th most consumed nut in the world.  Cashews are one of the superfoods with many health benefits.

Here are some of them., as follows:

Cashews have a lower fat content than other nuts. Almost half of the fat in cashews is the heart-healthy kind that can reduce the risk of heart disease. They are high in oleic acid which is the same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil.
Studies show that oleic acid promotes good cardiovascular health. Cashews are cholesterol-free

Cashews are high in the nutrient Phosphatidylserine which studies have shown to help with memory.  In fact, they have the highest amount of any nut.

Cashews are lower in calories and in fat compared to most other nuts, they have more protein than most other nuts. They are a good source of healthy fats, protein, iron, and rich in B vitamins.

Nutrient Cashew Database by USDA: 1/4 cup of cashews has approximately 196 calories, 5 g of protein, 2 mg Iron, 750 mg copper (84% DV), 89 mg.  Cashews also contain vitamins C and B, including 7 micrograms (mcg) of DFE folate. A 1-ounce serving of cashews is about 18 whole cashews. Cashews are high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and a good source of protein.

Roasted cashews are more nutritious than eating them raw. The antioxidants in cashews are increased as the roasting temperature increased.

Time to enjoy eating cashews with all their health benefits. Have a handful daily and/or add them to meals.
