CASHEW PROCESSING PROJECT

India’s cashew industry is affected by a global shortage of raw cashew has kept prices escalated at unprecedented highs. India is the major exporter of processed cashew kernels and largest consumer of the nut. A meets about 60-70% of its processing needs through imports around 9-10lakh tonnes of raw cashew to process and export as kernels. Cashew production in India has been stagnant for the past few years with output 6-7lakh tones.

Cashew Products

CASHEW NUT SHELL LIQUID

The liquid inside the shell represent 15% of the gross weight and has some attractive medicinal and industrial uses. The liquid is one of the natural resin that is highly heat resistant and is used in braking system and in paint manufacturing.

RAW CASHEW NUTS

The Raw cashew nut is the main commercial product of the Cashew tree,though yields of cashew apple are eight to ten times the weight of the raw nuts

CASHEW KERNELS

It is estimated that 60% of cashew kernels are consumed in the form of snacks while the remaining 40% are included in confectionery.

Three main cashew products are traded on the international market; these are Nuts, Cashew Kernels and Cashew Nut Shell LiQuid (CNSL). A Fourth Product,the Cashew Apple is generally Processed and consumed locally.

 

Cashew Nut Processing

Step 1

Sun Drying and Storage At the Producer Level Raw Cashew Nuts are sun dried for several days. The Raw Cashew Nut is stored in either gunny or sisal bags. Passages should be kept in order to guarantee ventilation

Step 2

Before Processing The quality of the raw cashew nut is determined by three key tests before processing: Moisture test,Nut Count Test and Nut turn-out.The kernels are also graded according to their size,

Step 3

Cleaning, Roasting Cooling The raw nuts are sieved by hand using mesh sieve.After that The raw cashew nut are roasted for approximately 30 minutes and left to cool for 12-15 hours.

Step 4

Hygiene Practices Good Hygienic & Manufacturing practices shall be respected through the whole processing Chain.

Before the market

Shelling/Cutting
Two people work togethe at each shelling machine

The first cuts the nuts and the second person opens them by a pin separating the kernel from the shell.Daily Production is about 30kg per team.

Grading and Packing

 

There are 27 specific grades of cashew nut kernels obtained from peeling.The major work is to select the kernels according to size,shape color and count.Once the kernels have been graded, and after going through final quality control; they are packed in pouches of 25lbs/11.34kg net weight. The pouches are vacuum-packed to extract air and carbon dioxide; then,nitrogen gas is injected in and the pouch is automatically sealed.The final process prevents the product deterioration and extends the storage/shelf life of the kernel up to 5 years if the pouch is not punctured.

Peeling

 

Manul peeling is done by gentle rubbing with fingers by use of special peeling knife; with this operation 10-12 kg of kernels can be peeled per day.

Drying

The raw kernels are put in aluminumperforated trays and then put in an electric/steam drying machine for three hours at a constant temperature of 80 deg. C. The moisture content of the raw kernel is reduced from 7% to 3% to prevent natural deterioration.
