Raw Cashew Pieces

Our Raw Cashew Pieces are a product of Vietnam. They are pale ivory and light-yellow in color and contain approximately 55% of cashew kernels that measure 4.75mm in size. These blanched cashews are commonly used for snack mixes and when blended create a creamy consistency great for making cashew cheese. Generally, larger the size, higher the price, hence cashew large pieces being smaller than wholes are more economically viable that wholes 320 or 240 or 250. This product is certified gluten-free, Halal, Kosher, and vegan-friendly.
