Macadamia Nuts: Nutritional Benefits  

Macadamia Nuts, also called the Queensland Nuts, come from the evergreen Macadamia Tree, which is native to Australia. The macadamia tree grows best in subtropical areas and is now being grown in other parts of the World, such as New Zealand, Brazil, and Hawaii. The creamy white macadamia nuts have a high amount of monounsaturated fats and are delicious and exceptionally nutritious. The nuts are also a good source of fiber, proteins, calcium, iron, and magnesium. Here are some of the benefits of Macadamia Nuts:   macadamia nuts

Promotes Healthy Heart:

Macadamia nuts lower the risk of heart diseases. The heart benefits of Macadamia nuts come from their high content of healthy fat. Research shows that 132g of Macadamia nuts contain about 100g of monounsaturated fat. Eating a minimum of 42g of macadamia seeds significantly reduces inflammation and lowers bad cholesterol levels.

Aids Weight Loss:

As macadamia nuts have high amounts of protein and fiber, adding them to your daily diet can make you feel full and reduce hunger. This is especially beneficial for people who are trying to lose weight. Research also shows that consuming a predominantly fatty diet can help people lose weight. Macadamia nuts are a good source of monounsaturated fatty acids like omega-7 palmitoleic acid. This could be another reason why macadamia nuts promote weight loss.

Promotes Healthy Hair and Skin:

Macadamia nuts are an exceptional source of Vitamin E and antioxidants. These magical compounds fight free radicals. Free radicals are known to cause cellular damage resulting in aging, diabetes, cancer, and brain diseases. Macadamia nuts are rich in flavonoids and tocotrienols, which promote healthy, youthful skin and hair.

Reduces Risk of Metabolic Syndrome:

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of abnormalities that results in the development of cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes. Because of the high nutritional value of macadamia nuts, it reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Research also shows that for people with type 2 diabetes, daily intake of macadamia nuts reduces the risk of metabolic syndrome.

Improves Gut Health:

As macadamia nuts are rich in fiber and protein, daily intake improves overall gut health. The fiber in macadamia nuts is soluble and therefore acts as a prebiotic, promoting gut bacteria health. Research shows that beneficial gut bacteria produce short-chain fatty acids, which reduce inflammation. Good gut bacteria protect humans against irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn’s disease and also promote heart health.   Gut Health

Other Benefits:

Macadamia nuts are also believed to have anticancer properties owing to the presence of flavonoids and tocotrienols. They are also said to promote brain health and prevent memory-related diseases. However, these claims are still not research-proven. Due to the presence of antioxidants, consuming macadamia nuts have anti-ageing properties and consuming them daily promotes a youthful appearance.

Macadamia Nuts: Recipes to Try

Macadamia Nuts, also known as the Queensland Nuts, come from the evergreen Macadamia Tree and are native to Australia. The macadamia tree grows best in subtropical areas in well-drained soils. Macadamia trees are now being grown in other parts of the World, such as New Zealand, Brazil, and Hawaii. Macadamia nuts have a high amount of monounsaturated fats and are delicious and exceptionally nutritious. Macadamia nuts are usually used in cookies and pastries. Here are some popular macadamia nut recipes to try:

Macadamia Nut Dukkah:

Macadamia Nut Dukkah is a special dish that combines both macadamia nuts and oil. To prepare this dish, first, roast two cups of macadamia nuts and three teaspoons of sunflower seeds on low flame in a pan. Set it aside. In another pan, toast sesame, cumin, and coriander seeds together until a sweet aroma arises. The amount of these ingredients is completely a personal choice. Add the previously set aside macadamia nuts and sunflower seeds, now toasted seeds, and some anise myrtle powder to a blender and blend lightly to form a chunky mixture. Now heat some garlic powder in macadamia oil on low flame in another pan and add the blended mixture. Stir the mixture thoroughly and serve hot.

Okonomiyaki with Macadamia Tonkatsu Sauce:

Adding Macadamia nuts is a delicious way to add some texture and protein to this traditional Japanese dish. Okonomiyaki consists of pancakes and a sauce. Toast one-third of a cup of macadamia nuts and set aside. To make the sauce, add one tbsp of tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, mirin wine, and dijon mustard with 2 tbsps of soy sauce, caster sugar, and previously roasted macadamia nuts to a blender. Blend thoroughly to form a creamy smooth mixture. To make the pancake, first mix 1 cup of flour, four lightly whisked eggs, a pinch of salt, and water to form a smooth batter. Add cabbage, chopped spring onions, and grated ginger into this batter and mix well. Now make the pancakes by pouring the batter into a frying pan. Use medium heat, and cook until both sides turn crispy golden. Serve the pancakes along with Macadamia Tonkatsu Sauce.

Macadamia Cheese Crisps:

Macadamia Cheese Crisps are a very simple dish to prepare and are perfect for a healthy afternoon snack.

 Cheese Crisps

For extra benefits, these crisps can be savored with guacamole. Add 1 cup of raw macadamia, 250g of cheddar cheese, one egg, and one-fourth of a cup of plain flour into a blender and blend it smooth. The mixture is then gently kneaded into small balls, flattened, and refrigerated for 30 minutes. Use this time to preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius. After lining your baking tray with baking paper, slice thin strips off the dough and flatten it with your fingers on the tray. Sprinkle some black sesame seeds on top. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes to get that golden hue on the crackers. Serve your crackers cold along with guacamole dip.
