Raw Cashew Nuts
If taste is measured in brightness, then cashew nuts might just be Sirius. It’s evident in how often people use them in food—a favourite in-between snack, a special garnish to salads, that added kick to both sweet and savoury dishes.
And glory awaits those who would eat it—glory in terms of health benefits, that is. Organic cashew nuts aren’t just tasty, they are also very nutritious. Just .25 cups of those kidney-shaped nuts contain 98% of copper, 29% of magnesium, 21% of zinc, and so much more. And what can these nutrients do for you? A lot.

Lowers risk of heart diseases. All nuts—cashews included—are naturally free of cholesterol. Cashew nuts also contain arginine, folic acid, potassium, mono-and polyunsaturated fats, vitamin E and vitamin B6, which all work to protect the inner lining of arterial walls, reduce blood pressure and the risk of stroke, and fight heart disease.
Helps form red blood cells. Iron and copper, both of which the body uses to form red blood cells, can be found in abundance in cashews. They also play a vital role in keeping bones, blood vessels and nerves healthy.
Keeps your vision healthy. It’s not just carrots and yellow-coloured fruits and vegetables that promote healthy eyesight—cashews do, too. The significant amounts of zeaxanthin and lutein found in cashews help protect the eyes from damage, such as cataracts and blindness due to old age.
To get all these health benefits, it’s time to snack on cashew nuts today.
We don’t offer anything less than the rawest cashew nuts that have been grown organically. Once you receive our product, all you will find are whole, organic, raw cashew nuts with no added salt, preservatives or chemicals of any kind.
You may not know this, but cashew nuts belong to the same family as poison ivy. And, like poison ivy, there is a chemical in cashews—a cashew balm irritant called “anacardic acid”—that protects the nut inside the fruit from invasion.
Our cashew nuts are absolutely free of this irritant, so you can be sure that our product will not trigger a reaction caused by anacardic acid.
Even though we don’t use extra seasonings, flavourings or additives, our cashew nuts are naturally tasty. Use and enjoy our cashews in vegan creations, Indian recipes and many more dishes. You can even enjoy them as a healthy snack just as they are: creamy, buttery, nutty cashews straight out of the bag!
There are many cashew nuts out in the market today parading as “high quality.” Take a peek inside the bag, though, and you’ll see evidence of moisture and insect damage, shrivelled nuts and hints of rancidness.
We guarantee that the cashew nuts we choose to process are only the best of their kind, and that we pack the nuts properly to make sure they stay fresh so that no moisture or air can get inside. Our customers get this exact freshness and the full force of health benefits when they open the pack.
The economic importance of cashew nuts has increased over the past decade, which has led to many countries growing and exporting the product. While many companies get cashews from unheard-of suppliers—some don’t even reveal where they source them—we get ours from two of the best cashew nut producers in the world: Vietnam and Indonesia.
Impact Foods can provide a consistent supply of raw organic cashew nuts in bulk, private label and white label. We can also deliver it whole or in pieces to any place in the UK and all throughout Europe.
