caju

Caju is also very widespread in the North-Eastern part of Brazil. Part of the same fruit is the cashew, quite appreciated internationally. The pulp has a distinctive astringent taste.

The vitamin C content of caju is about 3-4 times higher than that one of the orange. Hence, the strong antioxidant function of the juices/smoothies made of this fruit pulp. Good amounts of vitamins of B complex and of dietary minerals (calcium, phosphorous and iron) complete the extraordinary nutritional qualities of this fruit.
