Production & Sourcing
Cashew meal is made by finely grinding raw cashew nuts into a powder-like consistency. The process begins with shelling the cashew nuts to remove the outer hard shell, revealing the edible kernel inside. These kernels are then carefully dried to reduce moisture content. Once dried, they are ground using specialized equipment to achieve a fine, flour-like texture.
This grinding process ensures that the cashew meal is of uniform consistency. The resulting cashew meal is then typically sifted to remove any larger particles, producing a smooth and fine powder ready for use in various culinary applications.
