Macadamia nut oil and its other uses

High-quality, cold-pressed, 100% pure and unfiltered macadamia nut oil is a must-have in every kitchen. It is suitable for both hot and cold dishes and can be combined in many ways due to its mild taste. Due to the gentle production process, the nutrients it contains are not lost. So the oil brings not only pleasure but also health benefits. For example, the oil extracted from the macadamia nut contains iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium. It also contains valuable fatty acids. In this way, the oil can prevent high blood pressure, cholesterol and dilatation of the heart vessels. Therefore, it is worthwhile to include macadamia nut oil in one’s diet.

In addition to the recipe presented here, macadamia nut oil can be used for many other types of salads. It can also be used as a vegan butter substitute for baking or pancakes. There are no limits to your imagination.
