Species Nutrition Macadamia Nut Oil - 500 ml.

Species Nutrition Macadamia Nut Oil has the highest concentration of monounsaturated fats (oleic acid) than any other available oil. This incredible omega-9 fat, oleic acid, has documented cancer preventative and heart protective properties. In fact, it's 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%).

How about this interesting fact? Our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate an equal balance (1:1 ratio) of linoleic acid (Omega-6) to alpha linolenic acid (Omega-3) essential fatty acids (EFAs). Junk food, rampant vegetable oil use, and the feeding of grain to food animals (even fish) have resulted in our current consumption ratios rising to a scary 20:1 ratio.

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.

Suggested Use

Macadamia oil is sometimes used in food as a frying or salad oil, and in cosmetic formulations as an emollient or fragrance fixative.  Macadamia oil has become very popular in Modern Australian cuisine. It is an excellent frying oil due to its high heat capacity.

I am a frequent user of macadamia nut oil. I never bought this brand before, so I thought I'd give it a try. Upon opening the bottle, it had a gasoline-like smell so I didn't even taste it. I threw it away at once and contacted LuckyVitamin.com Customer Service for a credit. I hope other consumers of this product post their comments in the event my experience was an isolated incident.
