College of Montreal experts recommend us one good way cashew extract may treat type two diabetes

New information published for the journal Molecular Nutrition and Food Research proposes cashew seed extract may play an important role in preventing and treating type 2 diabetes.

The cashew is a tree in the flowering plant family Anacardiaceae. The plant is native to northeastern Brazil.

Scientists at the College of Montreal and the University of Yaoundé in Cameroon analyzed how cashew products affected the responses of rat liver cells to insulin.

In Canada, over 3 million Canadians have diabetes and this number is expected to reach 3.7 million by 2020, based on the Canadian Diabetes Association.

In U.S.A, according to the American Diabetes Association, from the 2007 National Diabetes Fact Sheet, there are total 23.6 million children and adults in the United States - 7.8% of the population - have diabetes. 1.6 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in people aged 20 years and older each year.

Scientists looked at cashew tree leaves, bark, seeds and apples. They found that precisely the cashew seed extract increased the absorption of blood sugar by the cells.

Extracts of other plant parts had no such effect, indicating that cashew seed extract likely contains active compounds, which could have potential anti-diabetic properties.

In some people who have diabetes, a disorder called insulin resistance prevents the body from processing the hormone, which regulates energy and the processing of sugars in the body.

Lack of insulin can lead to heart or kidney diseases over time.

The cashew nut is a popular snack, and its rich flavor means that it's often eaten without treatment, lightly salted or sugared.

Cashews are a staple in vegan diets. They are used as a base in sauces and gravies, and can take on sweet properties for frostings and cookies.

They are high in protein and a raw, natural supply of energy.

The fats and oils in cashew nuts are 54% monounsaturated fat, 18% polyunsaturated fat, and 16% saturated fats (9% palmitic acid and 7% stearic acid).

Without cholesterol cashew nuts are a healthy fat food for heart patients too. And because of their high amounts of monounsaturated essential fatty acids, they also help support healthy levels of good (HDL) cholesterol.

Here below is a 4 servings recipe "The Cashew Curry" cooked in 45 min's with a wok or frying pan, a wooden spoon and these ingredients:

* ½ pound whole cashews

* 2 T olive oil

* 5 shallots, thinly sliced

* 5 curry leaves

* 2-in piece of lemongrass or zest of 1 lemon

* 1 T coriander

* ½ t turmeric

* ½ t salt

* 2 chiles, thinly sliced

* 2 cloves garlic, minced

* 2 slices ginger

* 15 oz unsweetened coconut milk

* 2 T cilantro, chopped


Sauté the shallots in the oil, stirring occasionally, until golden, about ten minutes.

Add the curry, lemon, turmeric, chiles, garlic, ginger, and salt, and cook until fragrant, 5-10 min's.

Add remaining ingredients and simmer until thickened, another 5-10 min's. Remove curry leaves and serve, with diabetic rice or brown rice.
