Cashews

Cashews

 Cashews are an incredible food: they can help lower LDL cholesterol, are full of essential minerals and nutrients like protein, calcium and magnesium, and can help make you feel full which helps curb food cravings and unhealthy snacking.

Cashews grow in tropical climates. We source our organic cashews from a specific collection facility in rural Vietnam.  The facility collects cashews from local farmers and has strong social impact on the local economy.  About 100 people work at this facility, which allows their children to stay close to home instead of migrating to the cities in search of work.  Local farmers – in addition to a market for their nuts - also receive support and training in organic farming to help increase yields without the use of agro-chemicals. 

Let’s not forget the health benefits of these nuts.  Cashews can help lower LDL cholesterol, are full of essential minerals and nutrients like protein, calcium and magnesium, and can help make you feel full which helps curb food cravings and unhealthy snacking.
