Macadamia nut oil has the highest concentration of monounsaturated fats (oleic acid) of any available oil. This incredible omega-9 fat, oleic acid, is considered the gold standard for reducing inflammation and restoring health to our internal environment. Macadamia nut oil is so high in monounsaturated fats (84-85%) that it even surpasses extra virgin olive oil (65-74%).*
What’s the best source of essential fatty acids (EFAs) that delivers an equivalent amount of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fats? Flax seed oil, you might suggest? The answer is a resounding, NO! Flax seed oil, while being a healthy source of Omega-3 fats, has a very low percentage of Omega-6 fats. Macadamia nut oil has the perfect ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids, 1:1.*
With regard to cooking, macadamia nut oil has an extremely high smoke point (410 degrees), which means it’s excellent for stir-fry and baking. Olive oil has a much lower smoke point (325 degrees or less) and it degrades when used in cooking.
Finally, macadamia nut oil has a sweet buttery taste, is resistant to oxidation, and is extremely high in vitamin E (four times higher than olive oil) making it the ideal heart-healthy, performance-enhancing, fat.*
