Wholesale Raw Cashews Small Pieces

Wondering why you can’t find a cashew sleeping inside its shell like you can with other nuts? It’s because that shell can actually hurt you. Cashews are in the same plant family as poison ivy and poison sumac and their itchy oil is contained almost entirely in the shell of the nut. That’s why you find cashews sold out of the shell. Once you get past the shell, go nuts! Chefs and markets purchase our wholesale raw cashews small pieces because it saves them time. If making a desert recipe, it will take hours to grab each cashew and slice it or crush it or ground it. If the pieces are small then they can be quickly and easily put into products for sale or dishes for many waiting customers.Eating cashews may help you ward off, or manage diabetes by helping to stimulate blood sugar absorption by muscle cells, according to the authors of a 2010 study. Cashews are commonly used in Indian, Thai and Chinese cuisines as a garnish or added to a curry sauce. They can also be made into a cashew cream as a dairy-free vegan substitute. In India, the majority of cashews are consumed as ingredients – including sweets, cookies, chocolates and ice creams, and the same applies to Vietnam, China and Brazil. In the US and Europe, they are mostly used as snacks. The bulk of cashews are grown in India, Vietnam, Brazil and Central Africa. Many African cashew fruits are then shipped to either India for hand-cracking or Vietnam for mechanical cracking. The current years’ crop is estimated at 619,000 metric tons, very similar to last year. The US has no commercial cashew crop, so all cashews are imported. In 2014, almost 30 million pounds of cashews were imported and consumed in the United States.
