Abstract

According to Webster’s 3rd New International Dictionary, nuts are hard-shelled, dry fruit or seed, having a more or less distinct rind or shell and an interior kernel. Popular nomenclature includes the peanut, which is in reality a legume whose pods grow underground. In general, they are characterized by a high oil content. An exception is the chestnut, which is a starchy fruit with less than 2 percent fat. Cashew nuts contain both fat and starch in appreciable quantities.
