Tough to resist nuts with high protein content are groundnuts, a nutritional powerhouse. They belong to the pea family and find usage in varying culinary cultures. Groundnuts are multitaskers- a human dietary source and food source for animals. In addition, they are edible oilseeds because of their high oil content. They are laden with beneficial nutrients for protecting the heart. 

Groundnuts primarily grow in the tropics and subtropics. They develop pods underground. Therefore, botanist Carl Linnaeus called them “hypogaea”, specifically “under the earth”.

Did you know that peanuts, one of the pantry staples, is a type of groundnut? Roasted peanuts are a popular snack. Furthermore, several other dishes such as peanut butter, peanut oil, peanut flour, and protein powder use this groundnut as the primary ingredient.
