  • Macadamia Nuts

    After reading todays MDA I started to really crave Macadamia nuts. I haven't had them in awhile but I would like to add them as snacks. I want to buy them raw (no salt or extra flavorings) and in bulk sizes since its normally cheaper. I normally buy almonds or walnuts from Costco but I never noticed them selling Macadamia nuts. Where do you guys get your supply of macadamia nuts? Any info is greatly appreciated!

    I buy them (raw/shelled on) in my local supermarket. I like them, and Hazelnuts, because they are lower in omega 6's compare to other nuts, but they still have a fair amount of omega 6's. Have them as a snack, but just don't go crazy.

      I did find macadamia nut oil at a specialty grocer the other day, but it was not organic and still something like $18 for less than a pint. =8O

        I am also wondering where to buy raw macadamia nuts. Does Trader Joe's carry them?

          I read on here nuts cause inflammation. Do macadamia nuts cause inflammation as well? Or mainly almonds?

            Almonds, walnuts and macadamia nuts are your best bet when it comes to nut consumption. Those are the ones that Mark recommends in his book since it has a better O3:O6 ratio compared to other nuts. Peanuts are the most common nuts to eat but they can cause inflammation and tend to be high on the allergy scale for a lot of people.

                  Thanks for the responses. I am going to try Trader Joes tomorrow and if I don't have much luck I will look online.

                  @cavewoman cafe - Maybe that's why I am craving them since it reminds me of good times in Hawaii

                        Trader Joe's has them dry-roasted and salted with sea salt.

                            I buy Fisher Mac nuts at my local HEB grocery store. Only ingredients are mac nuts, dry roasted, salt.

                            I've been looking for some raw ones locally because I'm under the impression that the dry roasting process affects nutrition (fat oxidation) negatively?

                              I'd be interested to know if that is the case and if the nutritional information on the package is correct or reflects the non-dry roasted nuts (assuming nutrition is affected). I read the same about bagged salad once many years ago - whatever gas they put in the bag to help maintain freshness negatively impacts nutrion. I have no idea where I read it or if it is true but I do recall that. Hmm...urban legend or is there some truth to this oh wise and knowledgable primal folks? Dry roasting and salad bags - bad, good, or who gives a kayak?
