Betel nut, also known as Bettlenut, Paaku, Pinang, Areca nut or Cau
The most common use of these nuts (seeds) is in the ritual chewing of the “betel-quid.” This habit is very widespread throughout Asia, India and the Pacific, making it one of the most popular Natural Products in the world. Generally the betel-quid is a small morsel consisting of a quarter betel seed (crushed), a pinch of lime, spices like cardamom or nutmeg for flavour all wrapped in a betel leaf (Piper betle). On some Pacific Islands it is traditional for the men to also add tobacco into the package. This quid is chewed slowly over several hours, causing a feeling of well-being.
