Hawaiian Macadamia Nuts

Hawaii's rich volcanic soil and abundant rainfall combine to produce the world’s finest macadamia nuts. Our macadamias are grown using environmentally friendly cultivation practices, and without the use of potentially harmful insecticides or fungicides.  

No fossil fuels are used during the drying process. 

Macadamia nuts are high in monounsaturated fatty acid (“good fat”) which helps reduce overall cholesterol levels. They contain flavonoids (a phytochemical) and tocopherols (vitamin E), which aid in protecting against cancer and heart disease. Macadamia nut oil contains Omega 3 fatty acid, known to reduce the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure. The macadamia nut is one of the few foods that contain Palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid. Palmitoleic acid may aid in fat metabolism, possibly reducing stored body fat.

As a natural, whole food, macadamia nuts, specifically, contain antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals with significant health-boosting potential. They contain high amounts of vitamin B1 and magnesium, and just one serving nets 58 percent of what you need in manganese and 23 percent of the recommended daily value of thiamin.

raw nuts like macadamias have been proven to help trim waistlines rather than pack on pounds. A review of 31 clinical and university trials showed that when people included extra nuts or nuts in their diets or substituted for other foods, over five weeks, they lost rather than gained about 1.4 pounds and half an inch from their waists. Although that may seem to be a small amount, over time it makes a difference.

So, if you're watching your weight, a handful of nuts like macadamias  is a much a better snack choice than a bran muffin. With about 60 percent monounsaturated fat oleic acid – the same amount as in olives – they provide the highest amount of healthy fat while being on the low end of the carb spectrum.
