As is often the most important aspect of any vegetable oil, macadamia nut oil boasts a high content of beneficial fatty acids that make it better than many other oils. It contains a high amount of oleic acid, a particular type of monounsaturated fat that can lower your triglyceride levels. Aside from the potential health benefits, one of the best selling points for macadamia nut oil is its taste. With a nutty, slightly sweet taste, it makes a good addition to salads, carotts, ricotta, mozzarella, fish, fruit salads, juices, soups, desserts & ice cream.
Two sometimes overlooked benefits of macadamia nut oil are its smoke point and stability. Due to its low polyunsaturated fat content, it can be kept for several years and has a high smoke point, making it good for cooking at higher heats.
