Grading of cashews involves the categorization of the cashew kernels on the basis of
|1st quality fancy||1st quality fancy Cashew kernels are either consistently white, light yellow, or pale ivory.|
|2nd quality scorched||Cashew kernels are either yellow, light ivory, light brown, deep ivory, or light ash-grey.|
|3rd quality special scorched||Cashew kernels are either brown, deep yellow, amber, light blue, and deep blue. They may be somewhat shrunk, raw, and light-brown speckled, blemished or differently faded|
|4th quality||Cashew kernels have the same color tones as the 1st or 2nd quality cashews, however, they also have pitted blemishes|
|LBW (Lightly Blemished Wholes)||LBW (Lightly Blemished Wholes) Cashew kernels are either light ash-grey, light brown, deep ivory, or light ivory. They may exhibit light brown spots or stains on the exterior. A batch falls into this category only forty percent or less of the entire batch of kernels exhibit such colors.|
|LP (Lightly blemished Pieces)||Cashew kernels are either light brown, light ash-grey, deep ivory, or light ivory. Kernels might exhibit light brown spots or stains on the exteriors. A batch falls into this category only not more than twenty percent of the entire batch of cashews exhibit such colors|
|BW (Blemished Wholes)||Cashew kernels are either deep yellow, amber, brown, deep blue, or light blue. Kernels might be somewhat shriveled and underdeveloped, or even exhibit brown spots or stains on the exterior. A batch falls into this category only when not more than sixty percent of the entire batch of cashew kernels are affected.|
|D (Dessert)||Cashew kernels might be scoured, intensely scorched, shrunk, and may exhibit either deep-brown spots, black spots, stains or discoloration|
|W (Whole)||Cashew kernels are categorized as whole if they exhibit the typical kidney shape and not more than 1/8th of their entire body has been broken apart.|
|B (Butts)||Cashew kernels that have been broken crosswise fall into this category. Such kernels are less than 7/8th, but not less than 3/8th, of the entire kernel size, and the cotyledons typically remain connected.|
|S (Splits)||Cashew kernels that have been divided lengthwise fall into this category. Such kernels are also not more than 1/8th of their entire body, and the cotyledons are detached from the kernels.|
|Pieces||Cashew kernels that are smaller in size and completely broken fall into this category. As they decrease in size, they are further classified as -
LWP, SP, SPS, etc (large pieces) SWP, SSP, DSP, etc (small pieces) CHIPS, SSP1, SSP2, SSP3 (chips) BB, G1, G2, G3 (baby bits) X (fine grains) FE (fines) P1M, P2M, P3M (mixed pieces)
|Size classification||Count per Kilogram||Pound|
|180||266 - 395 kg||140 - 180 lbs|
|210||395 - 465 kg||180-210 lbs|
|240||485 - 530 kg||220-240 lbs|
|320||660 - 706 kg||30-320 lbs|
|450||880 - 990 kg||400-450 lbs|
The overall grading of cashew kernels is carried out in the order of their color, shape, and size examples. A white colored whole kernel in the size 180 will be related to as WW180 (indicating White, Whole, and size 180). For the grade SW240 (this indicates Scorched, Wholes, and size 240).
Nevertheless, some differences exist in the categorization of broken cashew kernels. For instance, a white-colored butt is related to as FB (fancy butts). Likewise, FS is indicated as fancy splits, while LWP is indicated as large white pieces and SWP as small white pieces.
