Welcome to the world of cashews, the surprisingly nutritious nuts that not only add a delicious crunch to your meals but are also bursting with health benefits. At Pit&Pit, where we bring healthy food within easy reach, we adore this versatile nut. Discover why cashews should not be missing from your diet.

All you need to know about cashews

Cashews, or cashew nuts, are the kidneys of the cashew apple, the fruit of the cashew tree (Anacardium occidentale). Originally from Brazil, these nuts are now valued all over the world for their unique taste and texture. But cashews are more than just tasty; they are a source of various nutrients that contribute to a healthy lifestyle.

A powerhouse of nutrients

Cashews are rich in various vitamins and minerals. They contain magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and zinc among others. These minerals are essential for maintaining healthy bones and supporting the immune system. Cashews are also a good source of vitamin B6, which contributes to energy metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

The unsaturated fatty acids in cashews, including oleic acid and linoleic acid, are beneficial for the heart. These healthy fats can help lower LDL cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. A handful of cashews as part of a balanced diet can therefore be a great choice!

Unprecedented versatility of cashew nuts

Not only are cashews a nutritious snack, but their versatility in the kitchen is also unmatched. Whether you roast them and eat them as a snack, add them to salads or curries for extra texture, or process them into cashew nut paste for a creamy spread; the possibilities are endless. Cashews provide a natural, subtle sweetness that enriches dishes without being overpowering.

For the kitchen adventurers among us: cashews are excellent for making vegan alternatives, such as cashew cheese and cashew milk. These plant-based variants offer a delicious, lactose-free option for anyone looking to enrich their diet or meet specific nutritional needs.
