The groundnut belongs to the pea and bean family and is a leguma but is considered as nut because of
its high nutrition value.
Groundnut is the only nut that grows beneath the earth. They become mature in about two months, when the leaves of the plant turn yellow.
Groundnut is one of the most nourishing foods available in the world. It contains five important nutrients such as food energy, protein, phosphorous, thiamin and niacin. Groundnuts have considerable medicinal value. They contain a good deal of oil, which is very easily digested, and for this reason they are useful consumptives. The oil is regarded as an excellent aperient or a mild laxative and emollient which softens the skin.
Experiments made with the ground nut show that it is quite indigestible unless chewed to smooth paste. Excessive use of groundnuts causes high acidity, spermetorrhoea and premature ejection. Asthmatics in particular should obstain from eating groundnuts in excess. Groundnuts that are boiled in salted water are less harmful for such persons.
