Cashew butter is a food spread made from baked or roasted cashews. It is rich and creamy in flavour and when stored the oils and solids separate easily.
Cashew butter is high in protein, unsaturated fats and Vitamin B. One tablespoon of unsalted cashew butter provides 94 calories, 12 percent of the daily value of fat and 8 percent of the daily value of saturated fat. However, it contains less fat than most nuts. According to the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service it is better to eat raw cashew butter than the roasted variety, due to the higher nutrient levels.
