A tough nut to beat for health.


Macadamia nuts grow on trees native to Australia’s east coast sub-tropical regions. Macadamia trees grow best in sub-tropical climates and rich well-drained soils. In the 1960s, Australians and South Africans realized the potential of macadamias and began local cultivation. Approximately 50% of the world’s macadamia production is now grown in Australia and South Africa.

Macadamias are the Queen of the tree nuts. They are a natural wonder with their creamy, buttery and smooth texture and delicious taste. They are frequently consumed on their own as a snack, but also spread a touch of luxury and indulgence to chocolate and confectionary treats and baked goods or enhance salads or other meals.

Macadamias are Mother Nature’s superfood with impressive heart health benefits and many healthy components, including antioxidants and healthy fats.

Macadamias are one of the healthiest nut trees. Having the highest percentage of monounsaturated fats out of all the tree nuts, and being low in saturated fats with zero trans-fats, they contribute to a healthy lifestyle and help reducing the risk of heart disease.

Boasting some of the highest levels of antioxidants of all tree nuts, macadamias help protect the body against cell damage, disease, and cognitive decline. Macadamias are packed with phytochemicals, which have impressive anti-inflammatory effects.
