BENIN CASHEW AND THE REASON FOR ITS DEMAND IN INDIA AND OTHER CONTINENTS. THE CASHEW NUT OF BENIN IS CONSIDERED TO BE OF ONE OF THE BEST QUALITY RAW CASHEW-NUT IN THE WORLD.

COMMODITY DRIED CASHEW NUT IN SHELL FROM THE CROP OF BENIN

METHOD OF VALUING MINIMUM OUT TURN –47-48 LBS / 80 KGS BAG [LQLW]

NUT COUNT – 180 APPX.

DEFECTIVE NUTS – 10% MAX

MOISTURE – 10% MAX

ADMIXTURE – 1 % MAX

Cashew Nut Specifications

The crop season in West Africa is from March to June.

There is not a general standard for cashew nuts but some parameters can establish the quality of the cashew and the appreciation on the market

1 - Out-turn / Yield

It is the quantity of cashew kernel that can be obtained after decorticating (remove the shell of a cashew nut) 80 kg of raw cashew nuts. The count is in pounds per 80kg.

A good out turn is from 43 to 48 lbs

An excellent out turn is from 48 to 55 lbs

2-. Nut count

It is the number or raw cashew nuts per kg

170 excellent

180-190 very good

190-200 good

200-210 middle

210-220 low middle

230 limit acceptable

lower: poor

Please note that:

- It is necessary to balance this information with the out-turn

- In West Africa most of the raw cashew nuts, depending the year, have a nut count from 190 to 210.

3- Moisture / Humidity

For export 12% and less otherwise there are risks for the goods during the shipping

4- Foreign matter 5% max

5- Defective Lower than 10%

6- Float Rate

This is the total number of cashew nuts that will float when poured into water. A good float rate is 18%max

METHOD FOR CALCULATING NET OUT TURN OF CASHEW

• SMALL LOT WE CAN TAKE SMALL QUANTITIES FROM DIFFERENT LOCATIONS OF THE SAMPLE AND MIX THEM WELL AND GET A SAMPLE OF 1KG.

• • SAMPLE SHOULD REPRESENT THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE LOT.

• • IT SHOULD BE RANDOM SAMPLE.

• • BIG CASHEW NUT : 0 – 168 CASHEW NUTS/1KG

• • MEDIUM CASHEW NUT: 169 – 199 CASHEW NUTS/1KG

• • SMALL CASHEW NUT: 200 – E CASHEW NUTS/1KG.

• • TAKE A RANDOM SAMPLE OF CASHEW NUTS OF 1KG WEIGHT.

• • THE SAMPLE SHOULD BE WELL DRIED ( HUMIDITY APPROX 8-8.5%).

• • CUT THE SAMPLE NUTS THROUGH THE LINE OF INTERSECTION SHELL AND THE KERNEL

• • SEPARATE SHELL FROM KERNELS ( KERNELS SHOULD CONTAIN PEEL ALSO , PEEL IS CONSIDERED TO BE A PART OF THE KERNEL WHILE CALCULATE THE OUT-TURN).

• • SEPARATE THE KERNELS INTO DIFFERENT GRADES FOR OUT TURN LIKE GOOD KERNELS, SPOTTED KERNELS, BAD KERNELS, PREMATURE KERNELS, HUMIDIFIED KERNELS.

• • WEIGH ALL GRADES SEPARATELY WITH AN ELECTRONIC BALANCE.

• • DIFFERENT GRADES HAVE DIFFERENT % OF USEFUL KERNELS TO CALCULATE OUT-TURN

– GOOD KERNELS – 100%

– DOTTED KERNELS – 50%

– BAD KERNELS – 0 %

– PREMATURE KERNELS- 50%

– HUMIDIFIED KERNELS – 20 %

• CALCULATE TOTAL USEFUL KERNELS WEIGHT USE FOR OUT-TURN

• USEFUL KERNEL WEIGHT = GOOD KERNELS (100%)+DOTTED KERNELS (50%) +

• BAD KERNELS (0%) +PREMATURE KERNELS ( 50%)+

HUMIDIFIED KERNELS (20%).

• CALCULATE OUT-TURN

• OUTTURN = TOTAL USEFUL KERNEL WEIGHT ( IN GRAMS)*80 /454

NOTE : OUT- TURN IS ALWAYS EXPRESSED IN LBS UNITS.

• FOLLOWING DATA WITH AN EXAMPLE WILL EXPLAIN YOU BETTER

• GOOD KERNELS = 240 GRAMS

• DOTTED KERNELS = 15 GRAMS

• BAD KERNELS = 10 GRAMS

• PREMATURE KERNELS = 16 GRAMS

• HUMIDIFIED KERNELS = 10 GRAMS

• FIRST CALCULATE TOTAL USEFUL GOOD KERNELS

• GOOD KERNELS (100%)+DOTTED KERNELS (50%) + BAD KERNELS (0%) +PREMATURE KERNELS ( 50%)+ HUMIDIFIED KERNELS (20%).

• TOTAL USEFUL KERNELS = 240+7.5+0+8+2 = 257.5 GMS

OUTTURN = TOTAL USEFUL KERNELS WEIGHT * 80 / 454

• = 257.5 * 80 / 454

• = 45.37 LBS QUALITY
