Nuts refer to dry fruits that are mainly single-seeded. Although nuts generally have a high oil content, they are also highly rich in fibre, healthy fat, vitamins, and plant protein. In addition, nuts have a hard, leathery, textured protective shell around them. Nuts are defined as hazelnuts, pecans, and chestnuts. However, as per botanical definition, peanuts and almonds are not nuts. Peanuts and almonds both belong to the “legumes” family.

Since ancient times, nuts have been the most crucial element of the human diet that enriches the internal system with healthy nutrients. There were seven varieties of nuts discovered at that time. These nuts were wild almonds, prickly water lily, water chestnuts, two types of pistachios and acorns. In addition, people used stone tools to crack the nuts.
