View Full Version : Supplier for really raw cashews??
12-26-2007, 03:13 PM
Does anyone know of a supplier ( other than David Wolfe's website~ he is currently out of stock of raw cashews) that sells really raw cashews? I have tried the "raw" cashews at my hfs and I can tell that they are not raw ( get a heavy, yucky feeling after eating them). I really want to make a cheesecake and some other recipes that need cashews.
Any suggestions?? Thanks so much :)

Well, after surfing the web ( duh) I found a few places that some in stock. Believe it or not I just bought 4 lbs from Amazon.com for $41 with free shipping. Based on some of the prices I've seen elsewhere this is a great deal.
Here is another site that has them in bulk, but I can't make that investment yet,,,,, but just in case someone else is looking here it is ::: www.eatraw.com
Yay! I'm so excited to try recipes with some really raw cashews for once!

Great, you found RAW Cashews. I guess I'm NOT eating RAW Cashews, I eat the ones from Trader Joe. Thanks for Sharing the sites, I will keep a copy of them for future. Let me know if you find a major difference......Have a RAW Day.

iherb.com. I've been buying from them for MONTHS, and it's only $8-something/pound for Navita's TRULY raw cashews.

Thanks for the link Rawchickster~ an even better price! Yay, cashews are no longer elusive to me... hehe :)

Thank you for the info about iherb.com. I just ordered 7 pounds of really raw cashews and 4 - 10 oz. bags of raw, organic hemp seeds. AND for such a GREAT price!!! I had never heard of iherb.com. So, thank you, thank you, thank you!

So Trader Joes RAW Cashews arent really raw? Well they certainly arent roasted. What are they then?

found some at whole foos and you canoften find them at international markets, usually bagged, but I can purchase them by the scoopful at one location.

Generally, the cashews labeled raw have been steamed to release them from their shells, as opposed to the ones that have been roasted.
Do the truly raw cashews taste different or feel different?

I am soooo anxiously awaiting the arrival of my raw cashews... as soon as they get here I will post an update to let everyone know if I could tell a difference. My guess is that I will feel a definite improvement!
12-28-2007, 05:10 PM
they don't taste much different to me... but they make creamier milk, that's for sure!!

Do you think if I planted one of my so-called-raw cashews that I get from Trader Joes that it will still sprout a plant?
I'd like to start a collection of fruit/nut trees. I already have access to a walnut tree on my fiance's family ranch! They are to die for!

I don't think any cashews (unshelled) can sprout a plant... i think it needs the entire package...

So on iherb.com they have cashews from NOW and Nativas. Nativas talks about how they are really raw, but NOW doesn't, although they do recommend refrigeration. See the price difference (http://www.iherb.com/ProductsList.aspx?c=1&cid=2536) - makes me think that NOW might not be really raw? But it would be such a savings if they were...

I would say if NOW doesn't specifically saw they are "raw", then they aren't. It's a selling point to say that something is truly raw, so like organic, if it doesn't say it, then it's not.
I also saw that NOW had some "raw" almonds on iherb... I e-mailed NOW to find out if they are really raw and they aren't~ they are pasteurized, just like many almonds claiming to be raw are.

One day I hope to be able to afford truly raw cashews. Right now I just buy them at a health food store near me where they are labelled raw cashews but have no idea if they are really raw.
It's great to know about some new places to get them too.
