Cashews are a good source of protein and fiber and contain less fat than most other nuts. (See nutritional panel for saturated fat content)

Our Certified Organic Cashews are fresh, flavorful and delicious. We do our best to procure the highest quality nuts available. They are soaked and dried under controlled conditions with commercial equipment in a USDA inspected kitchen. We take extra measures, such as refrigeration and vapor barrier packaging to insure that you receive only the best.

Cashews sold by Wilderness Family Naturals are imported from Viet Nam. They are the only nut sold by WFN that some might not consider raw:
Just prior to cracking, these freshly harvested nuts receive a burst of steam to soften the hard outer shell. This occurs because the outer shell of the cashew is nearly impossible to crack without a quick burst of steam. Even with careful cracking and a perfected process, the highest amount of whole nuts available are about 60%. When hand cracked without the use of steam the amount of broken cashews is very high and because it is labor intensive and results in lots of waste the cost of those cashews are outrageous. Unfortunately, trying to work with a lot of broken cashew pieces in all kinds of sizes results in nuts that do not soak and dehydrate evenly.

Upon investigating the processing of cashews, it became our belief that the interior nut sees very little or no heat from the steam, and the quality of the nut from this type of cracking process is more uniform with many more whole pieces. So that is the nut we have chosen.

In July 2003, the FDA released a qualified health claim stating:
"Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove, that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease."
