How do you say “nuts” in different languages?

Nuts have now rightfully become part of those food that can be considered "allies of your health". They have been considered for years a food to be consumed as a treat and absolutely not fitting a healthy diet. Actually they have been currently experiencing a positive moment as a consequence of scientific research that made it possible to go beyond the simple concept of caloric intake in favour of the analysis of micro- and macro-nutrients contained in it.

Thanks to the content of unsaturated fatty acids, including omega-3 and omega-6, proteins, fibres, minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients with an antioxidant action, nuts have now been considered a food that, when included in a balanced diet, contributes to the maintaining of good health.

The Italian term for nuts is “frutta secca” and it generally refers to walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds and the edible oil seeds of some plants, contained within a drupe (a fleshy fruit that contains only one seed). Due to similar nutritional features, peanuts are often inserted within such category even though they are actually legumes.

In Spain this category can be identified by means of the term “frutos secos”, while in Portugal and Brazil it is the case of “fruta seca”. Have you ever wondered how nuts are called in other countries around the world?

In France, for example, we talk about "fruits à coque", which literally means "nuts", while in Germany it is translated as "Trockenfrüchte" and in the Netherlands as "noten".

Turkey is a large producer and exporter of all kinds of dried fruits and nuts, especially hazelnuts, to define the category "dried fruit" in this country is called "kuruyemiş".

Dried fruit is not only consumed in Europe, but is part of the traditional cuisine of many Eastern countries such as India, Japan and China, the latter is also a major exporter. In China we talk about 干果 - ganguo, in Japan 乾燥ナッツ - kansoo nattsu, while in India नट्स - nats.
