Macadamia nuts unroasted & unsalted
Macadamia nuts contain the most unsaturated fatty acids of all nuts. Unsaturated fatty acids prevent cardiovascular diseases by lowering the ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol.
In addition, a handful of macadamia nuts contains more than half the recommended daily amount of manganese; an important mineral for maintaining strong bones. In addition, it contains a lot of other minerals: copper, iron, phosphorus, selenium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and zinc. Furthermore, these nuts contain the most calories of all types of nuts, and they are relatively low in carbohydrates and protein.
However, they are rich in fiber! With 100 grams of this nut you already cover 25% of the recommended daily amount of fiber. This nut is a real all-rounder and should not be missing from your kitchen cupboard.
This also makes macadamias a healthy, filling snack for in between or after exercise.
Nice to know: the macadamia tree has its origin in Queensland, Australia, where Aboriginal people valued the nut for its healthy nutritional values thousands of years ago. The nut is therefore also better known as “Queensland Nut”.
