Macadamia meal is the cream coloured fluffy nutty tasting meal that comes from ground Australian macadamias. They are native to north eastern Australia and are grown in many places along the east coast. Macadamia’s shells are the hardest to crack but the nut itself is large, round and soft.
Macadamia’s are full of healthy fats, mainly mono-unsaturated fats and contain no cholesterol. They have more oleic acid than olive oil, which is the type of fat the brain needs in high amounts and also contain palmitoleic acid. This type of fat can increase insulin activity and inhibit damage to the pancreatic cells that secrete insulin by reducing inflammation. These nuts also contain Vitamin E plus flavenoids both of which are important anti-oxidants that the body needs to protect tissues and cells from damage.
Macadamia’s are a rich source of protein as well as dietary fibre and manganese and a good source of iron, B1, B3, B5, B6, riboflavin, calcium and magnesium. The meal of macadamia’s has most of the nutritious benefits of whole macadamia’s, they are just slightly lower in the anti-oxidants which are reduced in the grinding process.
Macadamia meal is light and texturous and is great as a gluten free alternative to bread crumbing. It adds a brilliant flavour to fish patties and rissoles and is great for vegetarians who are looking to add extra protein and healthy fats to their diet.
