Why should you choose Vietnamese cashews for export?
Vietnamese cashews are dry nuts smaller in size than many types of cashews worldwide but have characteristics that cashew nuts elsewhere cannot match. Specifically, cashews are firm, beautiful ivory yellow, have a naturally sweet taste, and have a typical aroma of Vietnam's soil and climate.
This delicious taste is also obtained because nature favors Vietnam, with the cashew harvest season in the sunniest season of the year. Accordingly, Vietnamese cashews are always fresh and flavorful because they naturally dry with only about 10-15% moisture.
Also, thanks to the soil of Vietnam, cashews grown here contain relatively high nutrient content, surpassing other types of cashews grown in other regions.
This cashew confirms by the research of the Nutrition Center of Ho Chi Minh City and the survey of the World Nut Council. Specifically, cashew nuts provide a lot of energy, fat, and sugar in Vietnam. In addition, there are nutrients in cashew nuts, and some nutrients promote brain development, complete the musculoskeletal system, ensure a healthy heart, and maximize anti-oxidants.
Significantly, the carbohydrate content of cashews is exceptionally high, so it is more crispy and fragrant than many other types of cashews.
Unlike other types of cashews grown in other regions, Vietnamese cashews are pale yellow, not milky white. The pale yellow color of Vietnamese cashews is spread evenly in every position of the kernel, both inside and outside. It is a consistent color that is hard to change even after salting, steaming, drying, etc.
Vietnamese standard cashew nuts are relatively small with dense cashew kernels, tiny slots, and heavy. It is also a distinguishing factor from cashews originating from Cambodia.
Still, the body of Vietnamese cashews is quite round, the cashew silk is relatively smooth, and there are no wrinkles along the body like some others.
Cashew nuts in Vietnam have the proper harvest in the sunniest season of the year, not to mention the number of Vietnamese cashews brought to the market every year is not much.
Therefore, the Vietnam cashew has absolutely no preservatives, and there is no oily smell. Thanks to that feature, Vietnamese cashew nuts possess a characteristic seductive aroma.
