Cashew nuts are a brilliant source of mono un-saturated fats. They are also a good resource for several minerals, including copper, magnesium, potassium, iron, and zinc. Also, cashew nuts are a first-class source of biotin and protein. A third of a cup of shelled cashews provides 261 calories, 21.4 grams of protein, and 15.3 grams of carbohydrate.Cashews have excellent nutritional value. Cashew nuts are lower in fat and a higher protein and carbohydrate than most other nuts. The fat that they do contain is by and large (60 to 65 perČcent) derived from oleic acid, which is a mono unsaturated oil with known benefits in protecting against heart disease and cancer. Although cashew nuts are lower in vitamin E and calcium than most nuts, they are a good source of proČtein, magnesium, potassium, iron, and zinc.(Activity4Life Forum 2007)
