Notes：Cashew nuts are rich in vitamin A, which is an excellent antioxidant that can make the skin appear more shiny and beneficial to the body's immune function. Because cashew nuts contain a lot of fat and high calories, they should not be eaten in large amounts on a regular basis. It is best to eat regularly and quantitatively. Eating a large amount suddenly will not be beneficial to the body, but will cause the risk of excess fat. You can eat 1-2 servings per day, and 1 serving of nuts is equivalent to about 8 peanuts or 6 almonds.
Some people are allergic to cashews, but cashews are a less common allergen than tree nuts or peanuts. In up to 6 percent of children and 3 percent of adults, eating cashews may cause allergic reactions, ranging from mild discomfort to life-threatening anaphylaxis. These allergies are triggered by proteins found in nuts, which cooking typically does not remove or alter. Reactions to cashews and tree nuts may also be due to hidden nut ingredients or inadvertent additions during food processing, handling or manufacturing.
Certified Fair Trade gives you the peace of mind of knowing that the growers and processors work in safe conditions, are paid a living wage, and produce nuts using healthy and sustainable growing methods.
