Karma Nuts is not your typical nut company. They do things differently – from their funky flavors to unique roasting techniques. Here’s why we love them!

October 24, 2023


Do good. Eat good. Feel good. That’s the motto of Karma Nuts, a snack company offering delicious, healthy nut products while prioritizing sustainability. They’re the same cashews you know and love but with more fiber, more flavor, and more antioxidants

So… how do they do it? In this blog, we’ll dive into the secret sauce behind their sustainable snacks – plus, their brand story, ingredients, and social impact. 

The Karma Nuts Story

Karma Nuts is not your typical nut brand. Karma Nuts takes an innovative approach to sourcing, processing, and packaging nuts. The company’s journey began with a simple yet powerful philosophy: what goes around comes around. 

This ethos, deeply ingrained in their brand name, drives their commitment to creating positive, sustainable change.

Karma Nuts was founded by Ganesh Nair, who received his Masters in Health Science & Technology from MIT and worked for over 10 years in diabetes care work. His family has a deep legacy (over 85 years!) in the cashew business – which inspired him to develop an alternative to oil-fried cashews that are the industry norm. 

The result was Karma Nuts: minimally processed cashews made from all-natural ingredients.

Karma Nuts Cashews

Innovative Ingredients

Karma Nuts cashews are made from non-GMO, gluten free, vegan, and Kosher ingredients and are air roasted (never fried). Their Wrapped cashews retain their natural skins, delivering double the fiber, added antioxidants, and even more crunch than other cashews. And, they have lower net carbs than any other cashew! Win-win.

How do they do it? The skins of Wrapped cashews have significant amounts of catechins and epicatechins (the polyphenols found in green tea). They also have very high oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) values. This allows them to have more fiber and antioxidants than their traditional counterparts.

Plus, keeping the skins on means less food waste!

In 2016, the Wrapped cashew was recognized as the “Best New Snack” at the world’s largest Natural Products show, Expo West.

Social Impact Initiatives

Karma Nuts invests in the local communities they serve.

That’s why they donate 10% of profits or 1% of total brand sales (whichever is larger) to non-profits that support the well-being, health, and nutrition of children across the globe. 

Each year they choose a different non-profit to partner with. In 2023, that was Children in Crossfire: a charity that helps vulnerable children affected by poverty, injustice, and inequality.

Specifically, Children in Crossfire has been working in Tanzania and Ethiopia to provide access to education, healthcare, and children protection services while also addressing the root causes of poverty and exclusion

Non-GMO Project Verified 

The nuts produced by Karma Nuts are cultivated using organic farming practices and are Non-GMO Project Verified.

This means no synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Not only is this healthier for you, but it also promotes soil and environmental health.
