Groundnuts, scientifically known as Arachis hypogaea and belonging to the Fabaceae family, have their origins in South America, particularly in regions now known as Brazil and Peru. They were introduced to India by Portuguese traders during the colonial period and quickly became a staple crop in various parts of the country. 

Karnataka, with its conducive climate and fertile soil, is a major producer of groundnuts in India. We source our groundnuts from Karnataka. An interesting fact about groundnuts is that despite their name, they are not nuts but rather legumes that grow underground. Health-wise, groundnuts are a nutrient-dense food, rich in protein, healthy fats, vitamins (especially vitamin E and B vitamins), minerals (such as magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium), and antioxidants. They offer numerous health benefits, including improved heart health, weight management, and reduced risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and cancer. Culinary-wise, groundnuts are incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed roasted, boiled, or ground into peanut butter. They are also used as an ingredient in various dishes such as curries, chutneys, salads, and snacks, adding flavour, texture, and nutritional value to meals.
