Standard specifications for Indian cashew kernels for export have been laid down by the Government of India under the Export (Quality Control And Inspection) Act 1963.
Cashew Kernels are graded into white/scorched wholes,pieces,splits,butts etc. depending on the shape,size & colour of the kernel. The Govt.of India Act prescribes 33 different grades of cashew kernels. Only 26 grades are commercially available and exported. They are:
W - 180, is the ' King of Cashew ' - They are larger in size and very expensive.
W - 210, are popularly known as ' Jumbo ' nuts.
W - 240, it is an attractive grade which is reasonably priced.
W - 320, are the most popular among cashew kernels and highest in terms of availability, worldwide.
W - 450, are the smallest and cheapest white whole kernels and hence the favorite among low priced whole grades.
Scorched wholes are another grade of cashew kernels, which have a slight brown colour due to longer roasting. They have all the other characteristics of white kernels and have the same nutritional qualities.
Butts, splits and pieces are priced lower and are ideal for cooking, preparation of sweets and savoury snacks.
California is the world’s largest producer of almonds. With its ideal growing conditions, including a mild climate, rich soil, and abundant sunshine, this area produces about 80% of the global almond supply, exporting to nearly 90 countries. To ensure a consistent, high-quality, wholesome product year-round, state-of-the-art equipment and specialized techniques for growing, harvesting, processing, and packaging are used. California Almonds are highly versatile and available in numerous varieties and forms suitable for diverse product applications.
There are approximately 30 almond varieties produced in California orchards. Ten varieties represent over 70% of production. Varieties are grouped into broad classifications for marketing purposes based on distinguishing characteristics such as size, shape, and “blanchability.” The California almonds are classified into the following three major classifications: Nonpareil, California, and Mission. Some varieties may fall under more than one classification because they have characteristics of one type (such as Mission) but are also blanchable (a characteristic of the California classification). All California Almonds are developed using traditional methods.
When purchasing California Almonds, it is possible to order either by classification type or by specific variety, depending on what best suits the ultimate usage. We will help you get the right understanding of how your needs will be best served by ordering a specific variety or a classification type, ensuring the almonds you receive are appropriate for your product line.
