Did you know?
Eating lipid- and protein-rich macadamia nuts can help maintain satiety (Int. J. Food Sci. 2021;56:5340-5351).
Macadamias are sustainably grown because irrigation is not needed due to natural tropical environment.
Younger consumers may be more open to “good fat” messaging than older consumers who have lived with the “fat is bad” marketing.
Macadamias are sustainable. Instead of discarding the husk and shell, farmers use the husk as compost and shells are often burned as fuel in the factories.
Macadamias are keto friendly.
