Halves and pieces.
As you know we’ve been out of alive, organic macadamias all year. We were getting them from Hawaii but they’ve become unavailable. We’ve found a source in Guatemala. Growing in a different clime and soil, their flavor, naturally enough, differs from their Hawaiian counterparts. To some tastes, the Guatemalan variety is a more nutty and earthy.
Macadamia nuts contain a significant level of protein, comprising essential and non-essential amino acids.
These include per 100 grams: 410 mg potassium, 200 mg phosphorus, 120 mg magnesium, and 64 mg calcium. Selenium, iron, manganese, copper and zinc are present in small amounts. Macadamias contain significant amounts of a broad range of vitamins including Vitamin E as tocopherols and tocotrienols, B1 (thiamine), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6, B2 (riboflavin), niacin and folate. They also contain phytosterols.
Macadamias improve the balance between omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. They also have a high dietary fiber content of approximately 7%. Dietary fiber is the term for carbohydrates that are resistant to enzyme digestion in the stomach. These consist of complex soluble carbohydrates and soluble fiber such as, hemicellulose, amylopectins, mucilage, gums and insoluble cellulose. Dietary fiber promotes the feeling of dietary satisfaction, slows digestion, promotes desirable intestinal bacteria, and keeps bowels healthy.
Macadamias also contain the phytonutrient classes of phenolic compounds: flavonoids, phytoestrogens, phytic acid, tannins which convert to ellagic acid in the body, saponins, and lignans.
Our macadamias are crisp, fresh and alive!
