GENERAL INFORMATION:

Kola Nut, or Cola Acuminata, is also known as Cola Acuminate, Sterculia acuminata, Kola Seeds, Gurru Nuts, Bissy Nuts, Cola Seeds, Guru Nut.

Tropical Africa is the native home of the towering kola tree growing up to 40 feet (13 meters) tall, its yellow flowers tinged with purple, bearing reddish-brown seeds about the size of a walnut with almost no taste but rich in caffeine.

FOLKLORE / FOOD / FUN FACTS:

--The Igbo, a tribe in southern Nigeria, consider the kola nut tree to be the first tree (and fruit) on earth. They consider the nut to be a symbol of hospitality, kindness and fraternity.

--Throughout Western Africa, a small piece of nut is chewed before each meal.

--It was introduced to Europe in the mid 16th century by Portuguese traders.

--The nut is also thought to improve the flavor of any food and to counteract the effects of drinking tainted water.

-- The nuts, either whole or cut retain their caffeine content better than kola nut powder and it is recommended that you grind your Kola immediately before using.

-- Kola, as its name suggests, is a main ingredient in many traditional colas.

--The nut can be soaked in alcohol to make tinctures. May be taken as tea although bitter, and the powder can be taken as a capsule.

-- Kola nut was used as the main ingredient in cola drinks for many years, but is now mainly used as a flavoring agent.

--In Western Uganda, kola nut is thought to enhance male power.
