Though considered a stimulant by some, Uganda betel nut (Areca catechu) also goes by the name areca nut. It comes from the palm of the same name which thrives in two parts of the world: the southern parts of Asia and select parts of East Africa.  It is similar to khat in that its main means of consumption is chewing, but unlike the former, it is not addictive.

The origin of the betel nut may have been southern India before explorers from Portugal took it back to the Western world in the 1500s A.D. However, some studies date the first place ever to grow the fruit to have been West Indies in 2000 B.C. South Asia then took over the crown of being the biggest grower. African countries like Uganda and Ethiopia began commercial cultivation of the nuts in the 1970s.

The uses of the betel nut are not just culinary. In many traditional societies in Asia, it symbolizes the union between a man and a woman. Indeed, it is sometimes the only produce that a groom needs to take to the bride’s parents to request for marriage. In health terms, studies find it as causing eye disease and cancer and are therefore restricted produce in some nations. It has however proved a strong potion against intestinal infection due to its alkaloid extra-nutrients.

Furthermore, it overcomes bad breath when chewed. It is also a good remedy for weight loss as it keeps hunger away for long durations.  We source Uganda betel nuts from the drier parts of the country in the north. The country imports much of its supplies but a few farmers are taking over the growth of the nuts. We only make contact with those who use organic means to cultivate their produce.

Upon harvest, we wash the betel nuts in readiness for processing. We then either sun-or oven-dry them. It is a popular notion that the ones that undergo sun drying acquire a more natural color than their oven counterparts due to the lesser heat.   Before packing Uganda betel nuts, we process them by simply removing the enclosing shell. This leaves the edible fleshy nut that gives a red pigment when chewed. All our processing takes place under hygienic, mainly machine cracking method. This makes them ready for use upon arrival in your destination.

We pack Uganda betel nuts in small pouches that can contain from 20 to 40 seeds.  We also offer powder from the areca nuts which we grind to fine particles. We provide these in well-wrapped sachet bags. In Asian countries, this powder is often available in the marketplaces in small measures often together with spices like cardamom.  We also provide bulk measures of the fruits in 60-kilogram gunny bags.   If you would like to avail our Uganda betel nuts in powder form,  you will get it while still fresh as we store it with around 75 percent moisture concentration. The same applies to the raw nuts: other than having high water content, these also have a clean appearance due to their well-cut samples.
