Though deliciously sweet, macadamias nuts are also a healthy, nutritious, and all-natural addition to a well-balanced diet. Macadamias are a high source of protein and rich in a number of components that contribute to well-being, such as fiber, phytochemicals, minerals, and vitamins. Our nuts are also cholesterol free and have a favorable fatty acid profile that is comparable to olive oil. The macadamias contain 80% monounsaturated fat (the good kind!), which lowers overall cholesterol and harmful LDL cholesterol while raising levels of HDL (good) cholesterol. Macadamia nuts can be a healthy substitute for foods rich in saturated fatty acids.
