Hi, I would like to collect characteristics, infos, scienetific news, nutrition data, stories on chashew nut.

The origin of the cashew nut is brazil. The Cashew nuts today come from Vietnam, Africa, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lonka, Brasil, South America,

The shell of the cashew is poison. The oil of the shell shell have a medical effect. I have found one article on cashew and gum desease. Cashew have quite much carbohydrates and high in natural sugar. So maybe this isnt so good for anybody anytime.

Beside they have phytic acid. When i eat cashew, i try to get good quality. If its is worse quality it taste realy bad.

A friend and me were by time quite addicted to cashews. Can you stop eating, when you start eating good cashew nuts. Do you have to throw up when you eat worse quality cashew?

What do you think? What do you know? What can you tell? What are you thing with cashews? Do you like it or not?

Why? Please tell me... I keep hearing cashews are bad. They are so delicious that I feel like I need someone to tell me WHY they are bad.

Actually cashews are what's called a drupe. The seed (what we call a cashew) forms within the drupe (the true fruit) and forms prior to the cashew apple (aka the pseudocarp or 'false fruit').

Cashews are not nuts, they're legumes, therefore they are not Paleo.

Cashews are by far my favorite nut, which is why I don't buy them often. I have to say, I was quite disappointed by cashew butter though. Nowhere near as yummy as I had hoped.

I buy my cashews raw at Farm and Fleet at a great price! I'm lucky to have them near by.

The cashew nut sort of grows over a fruit, and it's the fruit that's very sugary. Cashew juice is used as a drink mixed in south america quite commonly :)
