Re: Cashew nuts
Nov 7, 2008
Cashew nuts..mmmm...
one of my favourites!.
cashews are a DELICIOUS and healthy snack,in moderation ofcourse!!,they are very dense in calories and have a high oil content (good fats,mind you!).
eventhough they may be high in fat,i highly doubt there is ANY cholesterol in them to speak of. you see,cholesterol is normally found in animal products,
so no worries here.but just because they are cholesterol-free;
this does not mean that you are out of the woods!.
you must be careful if monitoring your sodium intake when selecting any nut.
and with this particular nut,salt tends to run the show as far as ingredients are concerned.be careful of what they are roasted with,because you may end up eating unhealthy hydrogenated oils if you don't read labels carefully!.

look for unsalted varieties,because with all that butteriness you won't even miss the salt..
