MANGALORE (Commodity Online): The demand for white areca nut is increasing in the Indian market and price has touched a record of Rs 175 per Kg, which is the highest since 1999.

In 1999, the white areca nut had got Rs.172 per Kg in the market.

The old as well as new stock of the commodity is selling out at faster rate and the price is expected to rise high.

Areca nut is of two types White areca nut and Red areca nut. White areca nut is used in preparing Paan and Red areca nut is used in preparing gutkha.
