Macadamia nuts are the fruits of the macadamia tree, which is native to Australia. Also called Queensland nuts, bush nuts, maroochi nuts, Hawaii nuts, and bauple nuts – macadamia nuts are commercially very important.
Being from the Proteaceae family of plants, the trees can reach as much as 40 feet in height. The flowers are slender and about 10 inches long. Macadamia nuts are extremely hard and woody. They have a pointed apex and contain one or two seeds.
Macadamias are a rich source of Vitamin A, iron, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and folates. They also contain moderate amounts of zinc, copper, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium. Macadamia contains antioxidants like polyphenols, Amino acids, flavones, and selenium. It is also a good source of carbohydrates like sucrose, fructose, glucose, maltose, and some starch-based carbohydrates.
Being rich in fiber and other minerals like magnesium and potassium – these nuts improve heart health. They help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. The fiber in these nuts also aids in diabetes treatment. And the antioxidants rejuvenate your skin and hair.
Macadamia nuts are found all year round, so we don’t have to worry about the season in their case. There are also numerous types of macadamia nuts (sweetened, salted, shelled,) available on our website www.farmfreshnuts.com.
The best macadamia nuts are compact, smooth, and uniform in size. They don’t have any cracks and don’t emit any weird smell.
Store the nuts in a cool and dry place. They can stay in your pantry for months without getting spoiled. But do check from time to time for growth of any mold or bacteria. Also, in case you have purchased shelled kernels, they should go into an airtight container right inside your refrigerator. Otherwise, they might go rancid quite fast.
