About Cashews And The Cashew Tree

Cashew is called "Kaju" in India.

The cashew tree grows in tropical climates, is an evergreen tree and grows to about 30 -35 feet tall. It is native to Brazil. Today cashew is cultivated in India, Vietnam and some African countries apart from Brazil.

The fruit that appears as a yellow or reddish yellow pear-shaped structure is, in fact, a false fruit as it develops from the pedicel and the receptacle of the flower. This structure is the cashew apple and is edible and sweet in taste and smell.

The kidney-shaped drupe that is attached to the cashew apple is the true fruit and within this drupe is the seed, the cashew nut or cashew as we call it. The cashew is the first to develop and later the pedicel swells to become the cashew apple. The skin of the cashew apple is very fragile and the pulp very juicy which makes it difficult for it to be transported over distances.

The cashew nut is covered enclosed in a 2 layered shell. The layers contain anacardic acid which is a skin irritant, allergenic and a toxin. Hence, cashews are always sold shelled. Roasting cashews well deactivate this toxin.

Cashews have a delicate flavour, a buttery taste and are popular as a snack food. They are eaten as they are, after roasting, salted or even coated with chocolate.

In India, cashew paste is used in sauces and curries and to make certain sweets.

Cashews - Nutrient Facts

Cashews are high in fat with 100 grams providing almost 150% of the daily requirement and very high in calories too with the same quantity providing over 550 calories of it. Cashews are, however, free of cholesterol completely.

The fats in cashews are the healthy monounsaturated fats like oleic acid and palmitoleic acid which are considered heart-healthy fats.

Cashews are also an extremely concentrated source of essential minerals like phosphorus, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, selenium and zinc.

They contain good amounts of protein as well, supplying about 32% of the daily requirement in 100 grams.

Cashews are also very rich in many vitamins like pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, thiamine, vitamin E with some folates, niacin, riboflavin and vitamin K also being present.

Cashews are high in potassium while being low in sodium at the same time unless of course they are consumed salted.

They also contain some amounts of the flavonoid zeaxanthin, which is beneficial to the eyes since it offers protection against age-related macular degeneration, faced by the elderly.

Health Benefits Of Cashews

  • Providing Healthy Fats

Though cashews are very rich in fats a major portion of them about 54% are the heart-friendly monounsaturated fats - the oleic and palmitoleic acids. These fatty acids lower the harmful LDL cholesterol and increase the beneficial HDL cholesterol. They also make for healthy blood lipid levels since they lower the triglycerides. Cashews thus aid in lowering the risk of heart disease and stroke.

In fact, along with the 18% polyunsaturated fats that they have, they contain almost 75% unsaturated fatty acids, the fats the heart benefits from.

To avail, these benefits consume a handful of cashews about 4 times a week.

Results from the Iowa Women's health study, the Adventist health study, Nurses health study and the Physicians health study which were reported in the British Journal of Nutrition showed that :

~~ Cashews and other nuts' high antioxidant levels were responsible for reducing death rates from cardiovascular and coronary heart diseases, AND,

~~ Cashews and nuts reduced the risk of coronary heart disease in those who consumed them as against a control group who never or hardly ate nuts of any type.

  • Controlling Weight Gain

A study published in the journal Obesity shows that cashews or other nuts do not promote weight gain. On the contrary, those who eat nuts at least 2 times a week are less likely to gain weight than those who rarely consume them.

A study done in Spain over a period of 28 months shows that those who ate nuts regularly had reduced their chances of gaining weight.

Eating an ounce of cashews or other nuts 4 times a week will not only protect against heart disease but prevent weight gain as well.

  • Preventing Gall Stones

Data collected over a period of 20 years through a survey on 80,000 women, in the Nurses Health Study, showed that women who consumed 1 ounce of cashews or nuts of any other type had a 25% lower risk of developing gall stones.

  • Benefits Of Excellent Copper Levels

With 1 ounce of cashews providing almost 75% of the daily requirement of copper, the benefits of cashews to our overall well being and health cannot be denied.

Copper plays a role in many enzyme processes since it is a component of these enzymes. It also helps in iron utilization and preventing anaemia, makes bones and connective tissues healthy, helps in the production of melanin pigment, destroys free radicals, keeps joint problems at bay, reduces cholesterol levels, normalizes heartbeat and reduces the risk of colon cancer.

Consume 1/4 cup of cashews every day. This will supply 40% of the daily copper requirement.

  • Benefits of Excellent Magnesium Levels

Apart from calcium, magnesium also plays a vital role in keeping and making bones healthy. It is estimated that 2/3rd of the magnesium in our body is contained in our bones; so one can well imagine the importance of magnesium for our bone health.

Some of the magnesium is used to develop the bone structure while the rest is available over the surface of the bone from where it can be made available for the body's requirement.

Magnesium also relaxes the nerves and muscles. If magnesium levels are low, calcium over activates the nerve cells making them contract, leading to muscle and nerve spasms which may increase the incidence of :

  1. High blood pressure and heart attacks
  2. Asthma
  3. Migraine
  4. Muscle cramps & fatigue
  5. Tension and sleep problems

Consuming 1/4 cup of cashews daily will provide 25% of the daily requirement of magnesium.

Some other health benefits of cashews include :

  • Providing the body good amounts of protein; 5 grams/ounce which helps in building muscles, hair and skin.
  • Low sodium content, which protects against high blood pressure and heart disease.
  • Good folates content which prevents birth defects in the developing fetus, allergies, kidney disease, arthritis and obesity.

Cashews are a safe food to eat. Some people may, however, exhibit some allergic reactions when they consume cashews or nuts. Hence, this cautionary note.

  • Cashews contain measurable amounts of oxalates. Excess oxalates are known to crystallize leading to health issues. Therefore, those with kidney or gall bladder issues would do well to consult their doctor before eating cashews.
  • Some people may show allergic reaction to the anacardic acid in cashew nuts, cashew apples or cashew shells. Reactions from simple itching to severe ones like vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhoea or difficulty in breathing may manifest.

      This was so interesting to read particularly because I have never seen a cashew tree or knew about the cashew apple. It is fun learning new things about everyday items we take for granted. I do like the taste of cashews. Normally we keep peanuts and almonds in our home for snacking. I also often use other types of nuts like walnuts or pecans for baking. It would be interesting to do a comparison between the different types of nuts as to calories, nutrition and the like.

      The vegan alfredo sauce looks and sounds yummy--thanks for sharing that. I must bookmark your article.

      An excellent article - informative and useful!

      Since I hike long distances a lot, I have found cashews to be good alternative to carrying food that has to be cooked. I would rather have cashews as high calorie food source when I am hiking rather than having them while watching TV.

      Also, when I am eating cashews during hikes, my dog doesn't try to get few from my hands. This is quite different from when I am having a sandwich made of cheese, eggs, aloos, or qeema LOL.

      @ geogo - Thanks my friend. There are conflicting reports as to the effects of amalgam fillings on our health. I'll surely make a hub about it a bit later. Thanks for stopping by.

      @ Bill - For once, I'm really glad I have written something about your favorite nut! Thanks for reading and am glad I've made my buddy happy.

      @ Rumana - glad to provide you with this information as well. Thanks for visiting.

      I was under the impression that cashew nut causes weight gain, but it is not so. Thanks for sharing this information with us.
