Macadamia is a flowering plant which can grow from 6 to 36 feet tall and produce hard seeds or “nuts” that are harvested into many different uses from food additives, flavoring, and even skin care. Only two of the Macadamia species are of commercial importance, with the other species producing inedible or poisonous nuts.
Macadamia nuts have the highest beneficial monounsaturated fats of any nut, and contain a wide variety of beneficial items such as dietary fiber, calcium, potassium, sodium, iron, and niacin.
