The Cashew Fruit has two parts – the Fruit and the Nut.
We are all familiar with the Cashew Nut. However, what is not really known is that the nut actually grows from the bottom of the “Cashew Apple.” The Cashew Apple is an oval or pear-shaped fruit that develops from the receptacle of the cashew flower. Called the Cashew Apple, it ripens into a yellow and/or red fruit about 5–11 cm long. O.N.E.™ Cashew is a 100% natural, nutritional beverage with a fresh, light and naturally sweet tropical flavor. Made from the fruit of the cashew plant, not the nut, O.N.E. Cashew is naturally fat-free and is packed with Vitamin C. One cashew fruit has five times more Vitamin C than an orange, without the acidity. O.N.E.™ Cashew also contains important nutrients including beta-carotene, vitamin B1, B2 & B3, calcium & iron. And, unlike the cashew nut, O.N.E.™ Cashew is non-allergenic.
Q. What is Vitamin C?
A. Vitamins C is an important vitamin for our health and wellbeing. It should be consumed on a regular basis to support the growth and repair of tissues in our bodies. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals, humans do not have the ability to make their own Vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain Vitamin C through our diet. Water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water. The body cannot store them. Leftover amounts of the vitamin leave the body through the urine. That means you need a continuous supply of such vitamins in your diet. Vitamin C is a highly effective antioxidant, acting to lessen oxidative stress. Even in small amounts Vitamin C can protect indispensable molecules in the body, such as proteins, lipids (fats), carbohydrates, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen species that can be generated during normal metabolism as well as through exposure to toxins and pollutants (e.g. smoking). Vitamin C may also be able to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamin E.
Importance of Vitamin C with Iron:
Vegetarians are often taught that Vitamin C improves the absorption of non-heme iron so that to maximize iron absorption from vegetarian meals, meals should include orange juice, tomato products, or other good sources of vitamin C.
