Macadamia nuts, queens amongst nuts, of raw quality at Flores Farm, are refined nuts with unique and delicious taste slightly reminiscent of butter and vanilla. In addition to high lipid levels (mainly mono-and polyunsaturated fats) they contain many minerals (potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, iron, zinc) and vitamins (B, E. ..). According to studies, replacing foods rich in saturated fatty acids by macadamia nuts reduces total and LDL cholesterol. More generally, several epidemiological and clinical studies associate a regular consumption of nuts and oleaginous seeds (about 150g per week, replacing other fats, possibly carbohydrates of the power supply) with various health benefits such as hypocholesterolemic effect , lowered risk of cardiovascular disease (through e.g. improvement in the elasticity of blood vessel wall) and type 2 diabetes, decreased risk of gallstones and removal of the gall bladder, and reduced risk of colon cancer in women.
Macadamia nuts come almost exclusively shelled or further transformed on the market because their shell is too hard and too thick for most common nutcrackers. Due to difficulty of production, complexity of drying and shelling processes and increased demand. they are among the most expensive nuts in the world. Macadamia nuts were already used 5000 years ago by the Aborigines, and were rediscovered in 1858 by two English botanists during their research in the North-East of Australia. The name macadamia was given in honour of the Scottish-born Australian scientist John Macadam (1827-1865). They are also sometimes called Queensland nuts, as fruits of the Queensland nut-tree, a tropical tree of the State of Queensland in the North-East of Australia.
