Why are our cashews treated with steam?
The cashew, in its natural state, is covered by a hard, inedible nutshell.
The edible nut itself is layered in with dark brown skin.
Steam processing of the nutshell and the nut takes place before further processing.
This brief heating of the nutshell largely neutralizes the strongly acid peel oil.
The peel oil would immediately chemically burn the worker's skin, who come in contact with the oil.
The steam treatment spares the workers of many wounds, which can cause throughout the cracking process.
Ad if the white liquid comes into the eyes, it can even lead to blindness.
The nut kernel itself is hardly affected by the steam treatment, and it is, therefore, a safe method for the consumer as well as for the worker.
Hand cranking is conducted by in the countries of origin by socially vulnerable families, including their children, and we can not support that.
Therefore, we have decided to offer only cashews, which previously got treated with the steam of hot water.
We love nature and everything that is natural and original.
