Beyond’s organic honey roasted cashews are a bit different than honey roasted cashews you might be used to eating. Beyond works directly with the cashew farmers and processes and roasts their own cashews to ensure that no harmful pesticides are added to the cashews. As a Fairtrade certified company, our honey roasted cashews are gluten free, pesticide free, and preservative free.
Many people would love nothing more than to walk up to a bowl and grab a handful of honey glazed cashews and just enjoy their sweet-salty, buttery flavor. They are addicting, while also being healthy. One of cashews’ appealing points is the diverse ways they can be prepared and consumed. Cashews are great in a wide variety of dishes, such as cakes and salads. Cashews can also be eaten raw, salted, or roasted. If you want to have that open bowl of cashews at your next family gathering, then you have come to the right place.
The first step is to roast the raw cashews to a golden hue. This enhances their natural flavor. The cashews are then coated in a layer of honey, though some manufacturers use multiple layers of honey to create a sugary shell around the cashew. The final touch is to add a pinch of salt to complement the flavors of the cashews and the honey. Thankfully, for those who do not bake or have time to go through this process, we sell them ready to pop into your mouth and eat the moment they are delivered to your door.
Studies have shown that cashews lower the levels of LDL cholesterol – the bad type of cholesterol – while raising the levels of HDL cholesterol – the good type of cholesterol. Cashews, like Mediterranean nuts, can regulate blood sugar levels, and they have even been shown to help manage type 2 diabetes. A quarter cup of cashews a day can prevent hypertension and keep blood pressure levels under control. Honey roasted cashews are especially effective in providing energy for a variety of tasks. Honey roasted cashews also have the same benefits as raw cashews or roasted cashews.
Honey roasted cashews contain antioxidants to reduce inflammation. It may be difficult to think that a honey coated snack can promote weight loss, but honey roasted cashews can do exactly that, when eaten in moderation. Honey roasted cashews can build and support muscles and nerves, and even help support your body producing red blood cells. Honey roasting cashews does not deprive the cashew of most of its nutritional value, so you can indulge and feel good about it.

Beyond the Nut sells high-quality, organic, fair-trade cashews. Beyond the Nut is also community-driven; our company grows and processes the cashews locally, helping farmers and women enrich themselves instead of exporting the cashews out of Benin for another country to process. Customers who buy our raw cashews in bulk will save over 20% off of the retail price of the cashews. Customers who aren’t ready to commit to 50 pounds of raw cashews have plenty of other options at our online store.
Eating cashews is healthy for the body, but buying cashews from the right vendors is healthy for the planet and for the workers who process the cashews.
