Organic Raw Cashew Whole 450

The Organic Whole Cashews 450 (OW450) are the lowest-priced white whole kernels, making them a popular choice among whole grades. They are classified as ‘First Quality Fancy’ cashews, which have a uniform color that may be light yellow or pale ivory.  This product is not pasteurized.

The processing of the OW450 consists of collecting the raw cashew nuts and sending them for boiling and steaming to remove the hull and skin. This unveils the broken and whole cashews called cashew kernels.

Nomenclature

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 OW450 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.

The Character “W” stands for Wholes, which means these are whole cashews of the highest grade.

The number “450” implies that customers who purchase this product can expect around 400-450 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. In fact, Olam has a large presence in Vietnam, having set up base 22 years ago and has grown organically to over 6,500 employees in the central and southern regions. Olam Vietnam Limited, a subsidiary of Olam International, has even been recognized as one of the best places to work in Vietnam, thanks to the company’s commitment to investing in its people.

Application

The Organic Whole Cashews 450 are the cashew wholes that are generally used for snacking consumption. These cashews can be further roasted or pasteurized if our customers so desire.

The Ow450s are also often used for making butter, bars or granolas since they are cheaper than their OW320 and OW450 cousins.  

These cashews also have industrial applications such as being used as an ingredient in chocolates, cookies, sweets, ice-cream, and more. Additionally, they are used as a garnish in sweets or curries, ingredient in soups or even as part of a mixed salad.

Our Organic Raw Cashew Whole 450 are a product of Vietnam that have been produced using standards certified by the Control Union.  They are pale ivory and light-yellow in color and contain 400-450 kernels per pound.  These blanched cashews are commonly used for snack mixes and when blended create a creamy consistency great for making cashew butter and cheese.  Generally, larger the size, higher the price, hence whole 450s are more economically viable that wholes 320 or 240.  This product is certified gluten-free, Halal, Kosher, and vegan-friendly.
