Raw cashews are so versatile because they serve as a blank canvas in the kitchen. You can salt and roast them or candy them with cinnamon and sugar.
Whether you’re snacking or cooking with them, our cashews will fuel your beyond for hours to come.

  • Untampered with, making it the ideal base for recipes
  • High fiber, low sodium snack, loaded with protein, zinc, and copper
  • One bag contains about 600 cashews

The Beyond Difference

Cashews are a native nut to Brazil, but today, they are mostly farmed in Africa, India, and Vietnam. Unfortunately, oppressed laborers in these countries are forced to pick and shell them for heartbreakingly little money.
Once the nuts are ready to be treated and packaged, they’ve already traveled an average of 10,000 miles. Then,they’re sprayed with a toxic chemical, aluminum phosphide poison, that even organic cashews endure.
We started our organization to disrupt the cashew industry. Not only do we strive to provide the best tasting cashews, but we also want them to come from a fair trade, sustainable farming community in Africa–not at the hands and livelihoods of oppressed workers.
By growing and harvesting our cashews all in one community, we are working to embolden Benin’s local economy.They’re lovingly processed close to home without exposure to harmful toxins. Then they’re roasted, salted, and packaged right there, a few hundred feet away.
Beyond cashews travel no more than100 miles from the thriving farmer that harvested them to his neighbor for handling. By employing locals in Benin, Beyond eliminates the need to export cashews to factories with unimaginable working conditions.

Your purchase of Beyond cashews:

  • Provides jobs to the people in Benin
  • Gives back to a local economy in Africa
  • Eliminates the need to export cashews into the hands of forced laborers

Health Benefits from Cashews

Incorporating a high number of plant-based foods can reduce the risk health conditions caused by lifestyle choices. Cashews are the perfect snack to help fuel your immune system and stimulate your metabolism. Here are some ways cashews can improve your health.

Cholesterol Control

Concerned about cholesterol? Cashews contain oleic and palmitoleic acids, which help lower LDL cholesterol (the bad one) and help increase HDL (the good one). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved for health labels to state that “eating 1.5oz per day of most nuts as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk for heart disease.”

Maintain a Healthy Weight

By routinely eating cashews, you may have a better chance of maintaining a healthy weight, according to some researchers. Studies show that people who eat nuts on a regular basis are likely burning more calories while at rest than those who don’t.

Increase Protein Intake

For every sixteen to eighteen cashews (approximately 1 oz), you’ll consume 5g of protein, 13g of healthy fat, and 160 calories. Cashews’ unique nutritional ratio make them a better choice over the often-compared macadamia nut, which is usually higher in calories and lower in protein.

Fight off Bacteria and Viruses

Do you get your daily dose of zinc? It helps to fend off bacteria and viruses! In a 1 oz serving of cashews, you get nearly 2mg of zinc! With just a few servings of cashews, you can meet your daily requirement of this important nutrient.
