CASHEW NUT

Description

Native to South America, cashew nut is packed with healthy fats, antioxidants, and minerals (e.g. magnesium, potassium, copper) that are essential for robust health. Although it is higher in calories compared to other nuts, a small serving of it can promote satiety and boost metabolism - aiding in weight management. With its delicately sweet, buttery flavor, this protein-packed nut is great for in-between meals or as post-workout snack for energy fuel.
