General Information

Cashew nuts are a popular snack and are widely used in recipes, especially in Southeast Asian cuisines. Being seeds, cashew nuts contain about ten percent starch, which makes them suitable for thickening soups of meat stews. In addition, again due to not being a nut in the biological sense, cashew nuts are less of an allergen than most nuts.

Cashew have a far lower fat content than most nuts. The fat they do contain consists of 82 percent of unsaturated fat, which makes the heart-healthy. When added to a low-fat diet, cashews are a good choice for diabetics.
