The Healthiest Oil You Can Eat
Until recently, anyone wanting to prepare meals in a health-conscious fashion
had to compromise when it came to cooking oils. You either sacrificed flavor and
performance on the stove for the sake of health, or you threw health concerns to
the wind to satisfy your taste buds.
Fortunately there is now an all natural alternative.
MacNut™ Oil is, quite simply, the finest oil available— more healthful than
olive oil, more stable than canola, and more delicious than either.
We begin with the finest tree-ripened Australian macadamia nuts and mechanically
cold press them using no solvents or chemicals. This traditional method of
extracting the oil ensures the highest quality and preserves the superb aroma
and taste—that’s what makes MacNut™ Oil the gold standard. And, because MacNut™
Oil is the only oil we process, there is no risk of cross-contamination with
MacNut™ Oil’s naturally high levels of monounsaturated fats and antioxidants
give it a very long and stable shelf life, even if left unrefrigerated.
The Macadamia Nut Story
Macadamia trees, with their glossy, evergreen leaves, are native to the
subtropical rainforests of Australia. They were called Kindal Kindal trees by
the Aborigines, who supplemented their diet with their nuts for many thousands
of years before being “discovered” and farmed by European settlers. Baron
Ferdinand von Mueller, one of Australia’s most important 19th century botanists,
cataloged the tree in 1857 and named it after his friend, John Macadam, M.D., a
lecturer at the Philosophical Institute in Victoria, Australia.
Macadamia orchards were first established in Australia, to cultivate the trees
for ornamental use, but soon the rich flavor of the nut was discovered and by
1856 the tree was being cultivated for its nuts. In 1882, seeds were planted in
Hawaii; however, Australia still leads the world in macadamia production,
followed by Hawaii, South Africa, Kenya and Guatemala.
