Creamy. Sweet. Indulgent... Those were the first words that came to mind when we first tasted this new addition to our amazing nut butter line!
Hand cracked cashew nuts are the key ingredient to a truly decadent cashew butter...
The definition of "raw" for the cashew industry means "not roasted"; cashew-in-shell are either boiled in oil or scorched in fire in order to condition the shell prior to cracking and speed the process. However, during that heating process the cashew degrades significantly and essential fatty acids and enzymes are destroyed.
Our cashews are neither boiled or scorched although our supplier does use steam to assist in the shelling of the cashew nuts. While they are using the steam - which is incredibly short - they randomly test the cashew kernel for temperature. They have been very successful in keeping the kernel below 120 degrees and generally keeping it as low as 115 degrees. While it is not as precise as using no heat or steam whatsoever it does allow us to offer an excellent raw cashew butter at a much more affordable price. Don't forget, all the cashews are still shelled by hand and machinery is never used.
Vivapura chooses to stone grind these delectable little nuts in small batches to ensure the highest quality available and the finest flavor and preservation of all the delicate nutrients.
We still feel that the product is raw since the temperature of the kernel is well monitored as it is with all our products. If we felt the product was heated to temperatures above the temperature threshold we would of course not deem the product as raw.
Whats more, our raw cashews are also certified organic for production and processing. Read more about our unique raw cashews here!
