A hazelnut is the nut of the hazel.It is also known as a cob nut or filbert nut according to species. A cob is roughly spherical to oval with an outer fibrous husk surrounding a smooth shell. A filbert is more elongated, being about twice as long as it is round. The nut falls out of the husk when ripe, about seven to eight months after pollination. The kernel of the seed is edible and used raw or roasted, or ground into a paste. Hazelnuts are also used for livestock feed. The seed has a thin dark brown skin.

Hazelnuts have a significant place among dried nuts in terms of nutrition and health because of composition of fats(oleic acid), protein, carbohydrates, vitamins (vitamin E), minerals, dietary fibres, phytosterol (beta-cytosterol) and antioxidant phenolics such as flavan-3-ols.
