In a 100 gram serving of raw cashews there are 553 calories, which is 67 percent of the Daily Value in total fats, 36 percent of the daily value of protein, 13 percent of the daily value of dietary fiber and 11 percent of the daily value of carbohydrates. Cashews are rich sources of dietary minerals, including particularly copper, manganese, phosphorus and magnesium, and of thiamin, vitamin B6 and vitamin K. Iron, potassium, zinc and selenium are present in significant content. Cashews contain 113 mg of beta-sitosterol. Cashews are not actually nuts but seeds. They are a popular snack and food source. Cashews, unlike oily tree nuts, contain starch to about 10% of their weight. This makes cashews more effective than nuts in thickening water based dishes such as soups, meat stews, and some Indian milk based desserts. In many Southeast Asian cuisines cashews are used for this unusual characteristic, rather than other nuts. The shell of the cashew nut is toxic, which is why the nut is never sold in the shell to consumers.
