Organic macadamia nuts Kentary are kernels produced by the macadamia nut tree, originally from Australia but now found in many parts of the world, including Hawaii. The nuts have a hard outer shell that is removed before the nuts are processed. Often the nuts are roasted or fried in oil, and nutrition values will vary depending on how the producer processes the nuts.

Like most other nuts, macadamia nuts are rich in nutrients and beneficial plant compounds. They’re also linked to several benefits, including improved digestion, heart health, weight management, and blood sugar control.

Organic macadamia nuts Kentary are sold as a snack food, are widely used in baking, and are used to flavor products like ice cream. They are high in fat, but most of the fat in macadamia nuts is good monounsaturated fat.

3. Fat of organic macadamia nuts Kentary 
Macadamia nuts are high in fat, but they provide a boost of monounsaturated fat, which is considered a “good” fat (nearly 78% of the fat in macadamia nuts is monosaturated with almost 17 grams per 1-ounce serving). Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) come from plant sources and may be helpful in lowering your LDL or “bad” cholesterol.

Dietitians recommend five to six servings of protein per day for most adults and children over 8 years old. An ounce of nuts is equivalent to two servings of protein.

6. Health Benefits 
Many of the health benefits of macadamia nuts come from their monounsaturated fat, but these nuts are also a good source of antioxidants.

7. Promotes Heart Health
Research shows that a higher intake of MUFAs is associated with better cardiovascular health and less heart disease. A diet high in MUFAs may help to lower cholesterol levels and also blood pressure, both of which benefit the heart.

A 2018 study of over 7000 people between the ages of 55 and 80 at high risk of cardiovascular events (such as heart attack and stroke) found that the incidence of these events was lower among those who ate a Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra-virgin olive oil or nuts than among those who consumed a reduced-fat diet.  Another study specifically reviewed research on macadamia nuts and found evidence that consuming these nuts could help lower cholesterol levels.

8. Improves Glycemic Control
A review of several studies on tree nuts found that higher intake of all types of tree nuts, including macadamia nuts, can help people with type 2 diabetes better control their blood sugar.8 Older research, such as a 2009 study published in Diabetes Care, showed improved body weight and glycemic control in people with type 2 diabetes consuming a diet high in MUFAs.

9. Reduces Inflammation
Flavonoids are a type of antioxidant that can reduce inflammation in the body, which in turn helps protect against many chronic diseases. Macadamias contain flavonoids.

10. Supports Helpful Bacteria
Nuts contain both dietary fiber and certain plant compounds (polyphenols) that are beneficial to the friendly bacteria that colonize the gut. As a result, consuming nuts can support digestive health.

11. Allergies
Tree nuts are a common allergen, and macadamias are included in this category. People who are allergic to other tree nuts and/or to peanuts may also react to macadamia. Or, they may just react to macadamia nuts. If you or your child is allergic to peanuts or tree nuts, talk to your doctor about how to manage this condition.

12. Adverse Effects
While macadamia nuts provide healthy nutrients, it is easy to over-eat them (which means consuming a lot of calories and fat, both healthy and unhealthy types). A single serving of macadamia nuts is just 10 to 12 kernels. To avoid overdoing it, use your hand to control portions. A small handful of nuts is considered a single serving.

13. Varieties
Macadamia nuts are usually available raw or roasted, with or without oil and salt. Check labels carefully, especially if you are trying to limit your salt intake. Macadamia nuts are also found in some nut mixes. The nuts in these mixes may also be roasted in oil or seasoned with high sodium products.
