The Avocado Zest is delicious. It has a fresh, lemon taste.  I drizzle it on my salads. I recommend it to anyone who wants a high quality oil with a hint of citrus for salads and fish.

Macadamia Nut Oil

Macadamia Nut Oil is suitable for a raw foods diet, and has the same caloric value as any other oil.


Macadamia Nut - Low resMacadamia Nut Oil is low in saturated fat (approximately 14%, of which roughly 26% is benign Stearic acid). Although the amounts of essential fatty acids are low (as expected in stable cooking oil) the ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 is in the ideal range of approximately 1:1.

Macadamia Nut Oil is very high in natural antioxidants. The natural alpha tocopherol (Vitamin E) level is approximately 450ppm (olive oil is approximately 100 ppm. Because of its high smoke point and monounsaturated level, Macadamia oil is least likely to develop the unhealthy trans fatty acids and lipid peroxides when heated.

This oil can be used for stir-fry because of its very high smoke point 410° F. (Depending on quality and age, olive oil breaks down at less than 325°). It has a very long shelf life due to the high natural levels of mono-unsaturates (that limit the points where on attack) and antioxidants (that restrict oxidation).

This oil contains no cholesterol (nor does other oil derived from plant matter).
