1. A Gentler Nut
Cashews are pleasantly soft and buttery with just a touch of crunch.
2. Heart Healthy
Rich in mono and poly-unsaturated fats like oleic acid, which support healthy heart function.
3. Plant-Based Minerals
A 1-ounce serving has 31.5% of the daily value of copper set by the FDA. Other minerals include manganese, magnesium and phosphorus.
4. Presto Change-O
Magically transform soaked cashews into creamy vegan sauces, desserts, milk, soups, ice cream - even cheese.
5. All-Natural Thickener
Since 10% of their weight is starch, ground cashews can naturally thicken soups and stews; a popular technique in many Southeast Asian cuisines.
