I remember years ago when I was first introduced to the world of raw food. Doing research before purchasing certain foods became commonplace to me, and it definitely wasn’t long before I was informed that pretty much all “raw” cashews on the market are far from an actual raw living food. In fact cashews labelled raw in most stores are heat treated, either boiled in oil or subject to scalding temperatures to enable their hard to open shell to come off easily. If the cashew you are eating is crispy and crunchy, it is most likely cooked. This makes processing of the cashew much quicker and more cost effective for the producers. However, because of this process the cashew changes considerably in both flavor, consistency, and color. Most importantly this heat process changes the nutrient profile of the cashew. Many of the cashew nut’s volatile nutrients, antioxidants, delicate oils and proteins are destroyed or damaged due to the cooking process to remove the outer shell. But not ours!
