Cashews are rich in fibre, protein, and healthy fats. They also contain a variety of vitamins, minerals, and health-protective beneficial plant compounds.
Similarly, to nuts, cashews may promote weight loss, blood sugar control, and heart health. However, there’s less research on cashews than on other nuts. Therefore, more cashew-specific studies are needed to confirm these benefits.
That said, there are little downsides to adding more cashews to your diet. Just remember to pick unsalted dry roasted or unroasted varieties whenever possible.
