Life Story of the Cashew
Cashews and cashew butter supply significant amounts of heart-healthy fats, essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) and the dietary mineral magnesium. Its protein to carbohydrate ratio makes cashew butter a fantastic snack option if you're trying to adhere to a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet. Cashew butter scores low on natural sugars compared to other nut butters such as peanut butter.
Raw cashew butter, which is what we use, is optimum for iron consumption. Cashew butter also contains Selenium, which is vital for health as it fights free radicals and stops them from damaging the DNA membrane and cells.
