Why Raw Cashews?
The benefit of roasted is that the heating process will kill any potential dangers from bad bacteria. However, roasted cashews are typically roasted in soybean or canola oil and have salt added to them. The roasting process also slightly degrades the nutrition quality of the nuts. We don’t need or want those extras when putting cashews into a smoothie.Nutrition Facts
