The naming convention of our cashew products consists of two parts; the cashew abbreviation and the digits that signify the number of kernels that are available in one pound of cashews.
In our OSW320 cashews the “O” stands for Organic, which means that these cashews are produced naturally on an organic farm, certified through organizations such as the Control Union.
“S” signifies this cashew product is scorched, which means that these cashews are darker than their OW320 cousins.
The Character “W” stands for Wholes, which means these are whole cashews of the highest grade.
The number “320” implies that customers who purchase this product can expect around 300-320 nuts per pound of cashews in this product.
At present, India, Ivory Coast and Vietnam are the world’s biggest producers of this kidney-shaped nut.

The OSW320 are the most common wholes customers choose when they desire to roast, honey coat or chocolate coat a whole nut – where the physical appearance of the natural nut is changed by this.
The OSW320 are generally not used for making butter, bars or granolas because of the premium pricing. They can, however, be further roasted or pasteurized before being consumed.
