Cashew nuts are nutritionally much the same as other nuts: they are high in fat (around 50%), rich in vitamin E and a good source of minerals, particularly magnesium and zinc. Cashew nuts in raw condition are a satisfying and nutritious snack. These nuts are high in protein, fiber and healthy fats. We love adding these tasty raw cashews to rice dishes and curries for an extra bite of protein and flavor. They are unsalted, huge and delicious for snacking or cooking.
