Processing cashew kernels into various cashew products, reflecting the diversity of European consumers
Cashew kernels can be processed into many different types of products. An overview of nine products made out of cashew kernels and available on the European market is presented below.
Some are widely known and appreciated by European consumers, others, like cashew oil, are barely available on the market and almost not known by the consumers. Overall, cashews are appreciated for their taste, their nutritional values but also because of their practical aspects: since most products are dry they have a long shelf life, making them easy to store.
The least known cashew products are nevertheless gradually adopted by more and more consumers because they are a great source of vegan proteins. Therefore, they can be used for cooking vegan dishes or, like other products, as a snack.
