Wholesale Macadamia Nuts

Macadamia are a type of small evergreen tree that grows up to a height of 2--12 meters. Of the nine species in its genus, only two are edible, the rest being poisonous or just plain inedible. It is these two species that produce the macadamia nuts, which are known for their flavor and nutritional properties. With prices sometimes as high as twice that of cashews, there is a great demand for these nuts from people all over the world. In the following paragraphs, we talk about the nutritional uses and qualities of macadamia nuts, and where you can find wholesale macadamia nuts.

Nutritional Facts about Macadamia Nuts

Like most plant-based food, macadamia nuts do not contain any cholesterol. Their calorific content is comparable to that of other nuts – a single macadamia nut contains about 18 calories of energy. Compare this to the walnuts, each of which has about 27 calories.  Another nutritionally interesting fact about Macadamia nuts is that they have a very high ratio of monounsaturated fatty acids, close to 86% by weight of macadamia oil. Always remember their higher energy content before you use them in your diet – unless used wisely, they can add extra calories to your daily intake without giving as good results.
