Macadamia Nuts from Sunfood Superfoods

by Anne Paddock

Macadamia nuts gained popularity in the United States when the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Corporation introduced the blue and yellow mass marketed canisters of macadamia nuts in the 1950’s. Back then, macadamia nuts were considered expensive and therefore hidden from the kids, and often reserved for guests or special occasions.

But, over the past 60 years as consumers realized how delicious and nutritious these nuts are (high in Vitamin B1 and manganese along with magnesium, iron, potassium, Vitamin B6, healthy omega fats, and protein), production increased (primarily in Australia and South Africa) and the nuts have become more affordable (about $20 a pound). Today, macadamia nuts are considered part of a health diet and enjoy a popularity across the globe.

Sunfood Superfoods sells organic raw macadamia nuts that have been sustainably grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers.

Harvested from evergreen trees, the nuts are processed at low temperature to preserve the nutrients. With no added salt or preservatives, these delicious macadamia nuts are as pure as can be with a crisp texture and a creamy, buttery flavor.

Enjoy right out of the bag, add to a trail mix, chop and sprinkle in salads or over your favorite hot cereal. The beauty of these nuts is the flavor and that they contain no added salt.

Each resealable 8-ounce bag sells for $14.99 at most retail locations but can be purchased on-line for $12.74 at www.vitacost.com.  With Vitacost’s constant promotions, the packets can be purchased for about $10-$11 each.
