The Cashew Process



The sun dried cashew nuts are subjected to steam roasting to remove the outer shell and produce edible cashew kernels. The raw nuts are connected to a boiler and steam roasted



The Outer shell of the roasted cashew nuts is cut off in the process. This can be regarded as a complex step in the entire process, where an unbroken kernel with a soft layer will be produced.



Peeling is a process where the inner shell of the kernel is removed so as to produce white nuts. The peeling process is designed to remove the soft shell, which is enhanced by the cold treatment. This step of agro processing will give out the white collared cashew nuts that are sent to the grading department.



Grading of cashew nuts is designed to sort out the wholes and pieces of cashew. This depends on the size, color and texture of the nuts.



It is passed through a cleaning line, where dead insects, foreign particles, if any are removed. Finishing touches are given to grades by removing lower grades.cashew kernels are packed in controlled atmosphere. Ambient air is removed.
