We found the same video on a Youtube channel ‘Tushar Pandya’. The video was titled ‘Kaju Nimki Making Machine.’


When we investigated the channel we found that Tushar Pandya manufactures machines for snacks.

We further investigated and found the same video on the Twitter account of Tushar Pandya stating that the machine shown in the video manufactures cashew-shaped snacks. The video showed the machine from different angles and also the end product of the cashew snack.

We contacted Tushar Pandya who owns Chotiwala Foods and Machines and manufactures snacks making machines.

He said: “This is the fake claim that says the machine is manufacturing fake cashews. It is a snack made of flour. The machine shows the cutting of a flour sheet in the shape of cashews. It is sold as a snack and is roasted before eating.”

We scanned the profile of the Facebook user who shared the viral post. Viral Watch is a video platform and has 331 followers.

Conclusion: No, the viral video doesn’t show fake cashews in market. These are cashew-shaped snacks made of flour that that being manufactured by snack manufacturing machine.
