Our non-GMO cashews are certified organic, grown and hand cracked using a specially designed tool to remove the kernel. This leaves the nutrients and enzymes intact, as nature intended. Raw cashews are naturally high in beautifying oleic acid and also contain magnesium, manganese, selenium and zinc. Zinc is a critical mineral for enzyme formation and reproductive health, making raw, organic cashews a very valuable food. Did you know that most cashews that say they are "raw" are not really raw at all? Cashews are typically extracted using high heat because the kernel is surrounded by a sticky resin. How do people get away with calling them "raw"? There is a loophole; since the nuts have not been roasted after they were extracted they are considered "raw" by the commercial nut industry. But we have gone to great lengths to bring you a truly raw cashew.
