Abstract

Nuts are used extensively as a luxury and their food value has been given little attention. According to the report of the department of agriculture, nuts are imported to the value of $1,518,484 in 1901, and this amount does not include the nuts which are admitted duty free. The use of nuts under the unfavorable conditions for digestion has given to them a reputation of being indigestible. If used under favorable conditions as part of the meal and not as an addition to a product which is indigestible itself, there is no reason why many of the nuts should not be regarded more favorably as food. The cost of nuts in this state places them among the luxuries, since they cannot be regarded as an economical food material, except possibly the peanut. Compared with the more expensive forms of breakfast foods many of the nuts are not expensive forms of food.
