Cashews provide an impressive profile of beneficial oils, including an ideal ratio of healthy saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. They’re also a good source of plant-based protein, iron and trace minerals.
The cashew tree, native to tropical South America, gained worldwide attention when Portuguese merchants began selling the nuts as a delicacy. The delicious cashew's rich array of beneficial oils contains an ideal ratio of healthy saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Navitas Organics Cashew Nuts have a mild and creamy flavor.
Navitas Organics Cashew Nuts come from the tropical regions of Vietnam, where the woody evergreen cashew tree develops small yellowish-pink flowers that eventually produce fruits. The swollen pear-shaped fruits have a hard, heart-shaped protrusion at the tip encasing the cashew nut.
We work closely with our suppliers to take great care in extracting the cashew nutmeats from the hard, bitter shell. To preserve valuable enzymes, healthy fats and the sweet delicate flavor, we use a special hand-shelled, low-heat extraction process.

Cashews make a truly satisfying and delicious snack when eaten right out of the bag, but don't stop there. Make your own non-dairy milk with cashews, or add them to smoothies for a creamy texture. Cashews are also ideal for desserts, salads, stir-fry recipes, and trail mixes, or in whatever culinary direction your nutty creativity takes you.
