Product Description

​What Are Macadamia Nuts and How Do They Grow?

Macadamia nuts originate from Australia. They are harvested from trees that reach up to 15 meters high. It takes the plant 7 years to mature and start bearing fruit. This, combined with the fact that macadamia nuts can only grow in hot and reasonably dry climates, are the reasons why they are rare. However, the high nutritional value and delicious taste of these nuts make them very popular. Food To Live can deliver Raw Macadamia Nuts to your table fast. Our product is of high quality, so you can enjoy this amazing snack at its finest.

There are 7 species of macadamia nuts but only two are edible and cultivated commercially. The trees sprout chains of beautiful white flowers, which gradually turn into nuts. They look similar to grapes, albeit larger and much harder. The green soft shell eventually turns brown and within it lies the hard shell of the nut.

Edible kernels of macadamia nuts are whitish and should be unblemished. They have a sweet buttery taste, which makes them stand out among other types of nuts. The mild and delicious flavor makes them a great addition to any recipe.


Food To Live Raw Macadamia Nuts for You

Macadamia Nuts from Food To Live are raw, unsalted, and available in bulk. This means you can enjoy this product for a long time, adding it to both sweet and savory foods. We make sure to process our nuts using the most advanced and efficient methods. This allows us to preserve the majority of the nutrients and their delicious natural taste.

Our macadamia nuts aren’t heated over 140F and we don’t treat them with any potentially toxic solutions. They keep extremely well if you store them in the fridge. Just be sure to put them into an airtight container if you discard original packaging.


Raw macadamia nuts can also be used for making vegan milk, butter, and gluten-free flour. Each is sure to be delicious as the product natural’s taste is fantastic.


 

Are Macadamia Nuts Healthy?

Macadamia nuts (unsalted) are very good for you. They are nutritious, filling, and tasty. Macadamia nut oil is a source of omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids. Due to the healthy fats, proteins, and dietary fiber, nuts are a heart-friendly food.

This type of nuts contains a large amount of manganese and a little bit of calcium.

Raw macadamia nuts also contain antioxidants.


Macadamia Nuts Protein for Athletes

A cup of raw macadamia nuts contains almost 11 grams of protein. This makes about 20% of the recommended daily amount for a regular person. As athletes, and especially bodybuilders, require more, this food would be a good source of extras.

However, like all nuts, this product is also high in calories and fats. This might not be a concern when you include them in a well-balanced meal plan. Professional athletes burn off lots of energy in their daily training, so they can shed these additions almost immediately. In fact, raw macadamia nuts can make a good choice for a pre-workout snack.
Bodybuilders, especially those who are vegans, can add macadamia nut flour to their protein powder.


Macadamia Nuts: Calories and Nutrition

Macadamia nuts are a high-calorie food. They are comparable to other nuts, so following the same eating regulations will be best. This means that you should consume only a handful a day. Considering their size, this would be about 5-6 seeds. Of course, chocolate-coated macadamia nuts and their flavored varieties are higher in calories. If you want to enjoy the ‘skinniest’ option, eat them raw or dry roasted.

The good news is that macadamia nuts are unlike processed and junk foods. Those mostly get their calorie count from ‘bad’ fats and carbs. However, nuts give you energy from ‘good’ monounsaturated fats and nutrients. They contain a fairly high amount of omega 3 essential fatty acids. This would be very important for vegans, vegetarians, and people, who don’t eat seafood and fish.

Raw macadamia nuts have the highest levels of manganese and thiamin. However, they contain trace amounts of almost all essential vitamins and nutrients, including calcium, zinc, and iron.


Raw Macadamia Nuts Benefits for Diet

Many believe nuts to be bad for the diet because of their high levels of fats and calories. However, as those are both the ‘good’ kind, nuts actually benefit various meal plans.

They are also rich in dietary fiber. This means this food is very filling, so it’s a good snack that will keep hunger at bay.

It’s very important to avoid overeating when you are on a weight management program. 4-5 macadamia nuts daily will be enough for you to enjoy their benefits.


Ideas to Enjoy Food To Live Macadamia Nuts

Raw macadamia nuts are one of the most delicious healthy snacks you can find. In fact, many connoisseurs consider them to be the tastiest kind of nut. Therefore, you can eat them ‘as is’ and enjoy the treat greatly. However, if you want some extra spark, you can add flavor with spices.

Roasted macadamia nuts will be more flavorful by default. However, if you sprinkle them with olive oil and then add some seasoning, they’ll be outright fantastic. When making a savory party snack, try some wasabi macadamia nuts. You can also go for garlic macadamia nuts, but not everyone at a party would enjoy such a strong-smelling seasoning. Plain salted macadamia nuts are the best way to go if you want to be sure everyone enjoys them.

In case you are going for a sweet dessert option, make coconut macadamia nuts. Coat them with coconut oil, roasting, and them sprinkling with coconut powder. This will combine two exotic flavors and create a tropical dessert that is sure to amaze your guests.

You can also make simple macadamia nut candy by caramelizing them in sugar and spices, like vanilla and cinnamon. Don’t forget that caramel macadamia nuts are an incredibly delicious treat, but they are heavy on the calories. Restrict yourself to 2-3 pieces max. Homemade toffee macadamia nuts make a great gift, so consider this for the next Christmas season.

When not used as a snack or a part of trail mix, macadamia nuts can be added to salads and sprinkled over stews. You can enjoy them in the morning in your cereal or smoothie.

As they are very tasty, macadamia nut syrup is getting more popular as well. People add it to coffee, smoothies, or various desserts.

However, the simplest way to enjoy this treat fast and without extra calories is to make dry roasted. This will take you about 10 minutes and enhance the natural flavor and aroma of the product.

How to Use Macadamia Nuts for Baking

Both macadamia nut flour and pieces make fantastic baking ingredients. You can use the first to add some flavor to your gluten-free flour mixes. However, like all nut powders, macadamia nut flour has a short shelf life, so grind it only in small batches. You can store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. However, make sure it stays perfectly dry in an airtight container. The rancid smell will tell you if it’s gone bad.

Macadamia nuts pieces can be added to cookies, buns, and bread. Don’t forget granolas as well. Due to their extraordinary flavor, these nuts enhance any product. They also mix well with dried fruits, seeds, and other nuts.

Some baking recipes, especially vegan, call for nut milk. This product usually has the same ‘characteristics’ regardless of the species it’s made of. This means you can use macadamia nut milk to make your baked goods more delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup margarine (vegan)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 ¼ cups oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips (vegan)
  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts

Instructions:
  1. Whisk together ground chia seeds and water to make a vegan egg substitute or use any other option. Set aside for the ‘egg’ to gel up.
  2. Stir together vegan margarine and sugar and mix thoroughly until smooth. Add salt, vanilla extract, and gelled chia ‘egg’. Mix some more.
  3. Gradually add gluten-free flour and baking soda and mix to get a nice cookie dough.
  4. Add macadamia nuts pieces and chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop the dough onto a baking sheet lined with oiled parchment paper.
  6. Bake your macadamia nuts cookies in a pre-heated oven at 350F. This should take about 15 minutes, depending on the size of cookies. They are ready when the edges turn golden but the middle hasn’t set yet.
  7. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from the baking sheet.

Enjoy these amazing macadamia nut cookies as an energizing snack. Your kids are sure to love them, and they are so easy to make, you can cook them together. You can add other nuts to the dough or replace chocolate chips with dried fruits. Cranberries taste particularly good in this recipe.

If you are using a different gluten-free flour mix, be sure to consider its baking properties. For example, some types of powders might require additional starch.

You can choose any type of sugar, but brown would be best.


Do Macadamia Nuts Go Bad?

Raw Macadamia Nuts from Food To Live keep extremely well. However, you must remember that all nuts contain oils. Therefore, they can go rancid if not stored properly.

Your main objective to keep macadamia nuts fresh as long as possible is to keep them away from moisture and heat. An airtight container is a must. Bear in mind that nuts go rancid when exposed to air, so you should keep that container firmly sealed at all times. You can store macadamia nuts in a re-sealable plastic bag as long as it remains dry.

Storing Food To Live Macadamia Nuts in the fridge isn’t necessary. However, this will help you extend their shelf life. You can freeze them as well. This way, they will keep for years.

Make sure you don’t re-freeze the product as this will reduce its nutritional value and ruin its texture. If you choose to freeze some macadamia nuts, choose a moisture-free freezer bag and put it away from products with a strong smell, like frozen spices or bell peppers.

You can determine that macadamia nuts have gone bad by their smell and taste. They might also go moldy if moisture gets to them. When stored correctly, raw nuts can remain fresh and good for up to 12 months.
