Macridge Macadamia Oil is branded under Macridge and Avoridge and carries the trusted endorsement of PJ & P Vennootskap.
Macadamia oil is healthy, and great for cooking and frying because of it's high heat capacity. It has a wonderfully nutty aroma which compliments stir fries, salad dressings and confectioneries. This cholesterol free, all natural, unrefined, cold pressed extra virgin nut oil contains the highest percentage of mono-unsaturated oils.
Macadamia nut oil boasts a high content of beneficial fatty acids that make it better than many other oils. The high oleic acid content in macadamia nut oil assists in rebalancing cholesterol levels by reducing the level of triglycerides (which can clog the arteries) reducing risk of atherosclerosis, heart attack, and stroke. Macadamia nut oil contains balanced amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Macadamia oil contains a high dose of calories which is great for an energy boost, but could contribute to weight gain if consumed in too larga a quantity. Research has revealed that macadamia nut oil contains a high level of antioxidants, including tocotrienols. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals that can cause chronic diseases like cancer. Antioxidants also boost the immune system, assist with detoxing and could boost eye health by preventing muscular degeneration. Macadamia oil contains an antioxidant called squalene (that naturally occurs in our bodies). Adding squalene to our diet is believed to help reduce oxidative stress on the body’s fats and the skin slowing down visable signs of aging like wrinkles, age spots and slow healing rate. Macadamia oil is also a wonderful moisturizer with anti-inflammatory properties which can be used in place of traditional shaving oils. Macadamia nut oil has a higher smoke point than other vegetable oils including olive oil so, when you’re cooking with macadamia nut oil, you are far less likely to burn off the beneficial fats along with the flavour.
