    According to the label on the nuts, there are 0 grams of cholesterol. They taste great, but the sodium/salt is not very good for you.

    I don't believe any nuts have cholesterol...nuts are a plant product. Cholesterol is only present in animal products. For what it's worth, try almonds and walnuts (unsalted, of course)...the health benefits are much better than cashews.

    I'd recommend unsalted, natural nuts. Too much salt isn't good for you, and I enjoy the unsalted kinds because they don't make you so thirsty anyway. I love to snack on cashews, walnuts, and macadamias. Unfortunately I can't eat almonds because they don't agree with my stomach! Just make sure to eat nuts in limited quantities, because TOO many will be high in calories.

    Cashew nuts..mmmm...
    one of my favourites!.
    cashews are a DELICIOUS and healthy snack,in moderation ofcourse!!,they are very dense in calories and have a high oil content (good fats,mind you!).
    eventhough they may be high in fat,i highly doubt there is ANY cholesterol in them to speak of. you see,cholesterol is normally found in animal products,
    so no worries here.but just because they are cholesterol-free;
    this does not mean that you are out of the woods!.
    you must be careful if monitoring your sodium intake when selecting any nut.
    and with this particular nut,salt tends to run the show as far as ingredients are careful of what they are roasted with,because you may end up eating unhealthy hydrogenated oils if you don't read labels carefully!.

    look for unsalted varieties,because with all that butteriness you won't even miss the salt..
    "Never" is a pretty useless word,in a world that is full of suprises".-PD.
