Cashew is often regarded as the fruit of the cashew tree (Anacardium occidentale) when, in fact, it is a pseudofruit.
What we understand popularly as "cashew" consists of two parts: the fruit itself, which is the chestnut; and its floral stalk, the pseudofruit, a piriform body, yellow, pink or red.
Cashew, the pseudofruit, is juicy and rich in vitamin C and iron. After cashew processing, juices, honey, sweets are prepared, such as cashew, raisins, cashew rapadura. As its juice ferments quickly, it can be distilled to produce a cauim brandy. Non-alcoholic beverages are also made from it, such as cajuína. Long before the discovery of Brazil and before the arrival of the Portuguese, cashew was already a staple food for indigenous populations. For example: tremembé already fermented the cashew juice, the mocororó, which was and is drunk in the Torém ceremony.
