Source of cashew nuts
Cashew nut is a nut native to the United States. This kind of tree can grow to 10 meters. Cashew nuts are not only difficult to pick, but also have a hard shell outside the cashew nuts. Although many people have eaten cashew nuts, they do not know that cashew nuts have shells.
If you can peel off the shell of cashew nuts, you will find that some juice will spill. These juices are highly irritant and corrosive. If it is exposed for a long time, it will also lead to skin redness, swelling, and blistering. It is for this reason that few people are willing to peel cashew nuts in some areas where cashew nuts are planted. If cashew farmers can’t find anyone willing to peel cashew nuts, it will be difficult to sell these cashew nuts. So they have to raise the price to go to the people who peel cashew nuts, which further increases the cost price of cashew nuts.
Why not shell cashew nuts with gloves?
Now we know why cashew nuts are expensive. Many people may think that why not wear gloves when peeling cashew nuts? Doesn’t that solve this problem? In fact, this practice is not perfect, because the gloves are likely to be cut during the cashew nut shelling process. When these things seep into the gloves, they will have a more serious impact.
And wearing gloves is also very bad for work. But some people insist on wearing gloves to shell cashew nuts. But over time, their hands will also become very dark and particularly rough. Although the price of cashew nuts we usually buy is relatively high, half of the price of these cashew nuts may be their processing fees.
