The cashew nut seems to be a secret nutritious species of nut to us, while actually, cashew nut belongs to any kinds of nut, for it is not the seed of a plant. It hangs under the real fruit—cashew nut apple, which is edible though. But, without any doubt, the kidney-shape cashew nut contain much more amount of nutrition than we thought.
In a 100-gram serving, raw cashews provide 553 Calories, 67% of the Daily Value in total fats, 36% DV of protein, 13% DV of dietary fiber and 11% DV of carbohydrates. Cashews are rich sources of dietary minerals, including particularly copper, manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium, and of thiamin, vitamin B6 and vitamin K. Iron, potassium, zinc, and selenium are present in significant content. However the skin of cashew nut exude a kind of toxic liquid which is also used in the chemical industry to produce cashew phenols, which are used in resins, coatings and friction materials. But these substances can cause skin allergens, such as poison ivy oil, so pay attention to the allergic risk during manual cashew processing. While the cashew cracking and shelling machine invented and released by Shuliy Machinery has solved these problems. Cashew nuts processing workers in India and China can be prevented from the allergic effects. Shuliy Machinery makes the world better!
