Heera Cashew Nuts

CODE : FOOGENSP012  
       
Descriptions :
The cashew is a tree in the family Anacardiaceae. Its English name derives from the Portuguese name for the fruit of the cashew tree, caju, which in turn derives from the indigenous Tupi name, acaj├║. Originally native to Northeast Brazil, it is now widely grown in tropical climates for its cashew seeds and cashew apples.

The cashew nutshell liquid (CNSL), a byproduct of processing cashew, is mostly composed of anacardic acids[8] (70%), cardol (18%) and cardanol (5%).These acids have been used effectively against tooth abscesses due to their lethality to a wide range of Gram-positive bacteria. Many parts of the plant are used by the Patamona of Guyana medicinally. The bark is scraped and soaked overnight or boiled as an antidiarrheal; it also yields a gum used in varnish. Seeds are ground into powders used for antivenom for snake bites. The nut oil is used topically as an antifungal and for healing cracked heels.
Anacardic acid is also used in the chemical industry for the production of cardanol, which is used for resins, coatings, and frictional materials.
