Macadamia Nuts in shell with husks

A Superfood-Organic Macadamia Nut

.A  Super Food-Organic Macadamia Nut

“What can compare to the sweet, buttery mac nut’s tender embrace? As far as nuts, seeds, and pseudo-nuts go, its fatty acid profile is unparalleled. Throw a handful into a bowl of Greek yogurt, along with blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries (or any berry, really), and you’ve got yourself a rich, masterful dessert with minimal linoleic acid. And it’s got good amounts of magnesium, manganese, thiamine, copper, and iron. Not to mention some fiber too. Pack a baggy full and you’ve got yourself the perfect trail food for day long hikes.

I tend to get a little carried away when it comes to those little mouth bombs of satiety, so I apologize. Today’s post concerns the mac nut’s lifeblood: macadamia oil. I know what I’ve said about seed oils in the past, but this is different. I liken the concept of macadamia nut oil to that of olive oil; they are inherently, obviously, blatantly fatty foods, and extracting said fat isn’t a stretch, nor does it require industrial solvents and complex processes (they may do so to increase production and efficiency, but you can crush a mac nut and leave an oily residue; you can’t do the same for a kernel of corn to produce corn oil). In fact, the layman extracts his own virgin, first-press macadamia nut oil every time he bites into one. You can feel the macadamia oil droplets oozing out of the obliterated nut mass and into your mouth. Being the most energy (specifically, fat-derived energy) dense nut of all, it’s totally saturated with the stuff.

Macadamia oil imparts a mild, buttery, rather macadamia-y flavor to foods, but it’s mild enough to use for homemade mayonnaise. It is highly shelf-stable and resistant to heat-induced oxidation; in one test, it bested rice bran oil, walnut oil, sesame oil, almond oil, avocado oil, grapeseed oil, and hazelnut oil in an oxidative potential test. Of all the seed and nut oils, macadamia oil withstood temperatures up to 120 degrees C (about 250 degrees F) without significant oxidation. It also excelled at the shelf stability test, being the only oil tested that exceeded the manufacturer’s given “best-before” date. I rarely expect companies to be totally accurate, but to be completely wrong in the opposite direction is a nice surprise! Keep your macadamia oil in a dark bottle and in the fridge, or a cool dark place, and I bet it’ll stay fresh even longer. I’m still wary of doing any heavy duty sauteeing or high heat grilling using macadamia oil as the primary fat, but it looks to be pretty stable as far as oils go with a smoke point of anywhere between 210 and 234 degrees C (410-453 degrees F), depending on who you ask.Read more: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/macadamia-oil/#ixzz48UKPwlRY” I love this article!!

The freshest Macadamia Nuts!

Aloha We at Mahina Mele Farm want to explain how we produce the freshest macadamia nuts possible! We are harvesting the macadamia nuts here on the Big Island of Hawaii all year round. The nuts love water and produce more during the fall, winter, and spring. We harvest the nuts, husk, crack, and dehydrate immediately for 3 days at 150 degrees. Once the nuts are removed from the dehydrators they are packaged and shipped with in 24 hrs. Not only are we the only certified organic macadamia nut producers that we know of here in the U.S. but we are also the freshest. Enjoy and taste the difference direct from the farmer, Mahalo Kollette and Jason macuir 2015 harvest smallStith
