Navitas Naturals Cashews are of premium raw quality. Navitas whole, large cashews are delightfully soft and creamy and can be eaten straight from the bag. They are also delicious when added to savory recipes, or blended into buttery spreads. Between being a natural protein source, an excellent provider of healthy fats and trace minerals, and full of life-giving enzymes, a handful of satisfying Navitas Naturals Cashews goes a long way.
Source and Processing
Navitas Naturals raw cashews are sourced from top growers around the world including Brazil, the nut’s indigenous country. Selected for their large size, and delicious taste our cashew nuts are carefully shelled and washed, and to protect the nutritional properties processed in accordance with low temperature practices. These premium cashews are raw, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and 100% organic.
Health Nut of the Equator
The cashew tree may be native to Northeastern Brazil, but it was Portuguese merchants who first introduced cashews worldwide in the 1500’s. Today, the small cashew tree thrives in warm tropical environments around the equator, often flourishing in the wild outside of cultivation. The fruit of the tree is known as the cashew apple, and protruding at the end of each apple is the hard-shelled edible cashew nut, which extends oddly like a nose. Removing the highly perishable fruit is easy, but in order to extract the prized cashew kernel from its difficult shell, most nuts are steamed or roasted -- thereby compromising many of the food’s health-giving properties. Even cashews labeled “raw” have most likely been processed in this fashion, unless specifically dictated otherwise. In contrast, Navitas Naturals uses a special low heat extraction process to preserve the nut’s valuable enzymes and delicate fats. This guarantees our cashews to be of “true raw” quality.
The Power of Cashews
Cashew nuts are a satisfying and nutritious snack, and offer a rich portfolio of beneficial oils -- including an ideal ratio of healthy saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fats. Navitas Naturals Cashews are also a good source of plant-based protein, iron, and other trace minerals.
Because of their truly raw quality, Navitas Naturals Cashews are large and soft, and have a delicate, mild, and creamy flavor. They make an enjoyable snack whether eaten straight out of the bag, ground into a luxurious cashew nut butter, or blended with water to make a creamy milk alternative. In their whole state, cashews are a well-received addition to salads, stir-fries, and are a creative ingredient in desserts.
