Diet Nutrition & Cashew Nuts:
Cashew nuts, like all nuts, are an excellent
source of protein and fiber. They are rich in mono-unsaturated fat which
may help protect the heart. Cashew nuts are also a good source of potassium,
B vitamins and folate. They contain useful amounts of magnesium, phosphorous,
selenium and copper.
Like peanuts, cashew nuts are often salted.
This added sodium content may contribute to increased blood pressure.
So buy plain roasted cashew nuts without added salt.
