Our roasting process is very simple – we do not use oil, and we roast in small badges. This way, Macadamia nuts maintain their original nutrients and are equally roasted all around.
Raw vs. Roasted Macadamias’ Nutritional Value
Contrary to popular belief, dry roasting macadamia nuts doesn’t reduce their nutritional value. In fact, a comprehensive study published in the “Food Science and Nutrition” journal in 2021 concluded that dry roasting increases the nuts’ oxidative stability, reduces moisture, and preserves their nutrients. Roasted Macadamia Nuts contain high levels of dietary fiber, protein, vitamins A and B, manganese, thiamine, copper, and iron. They are also packed with antioxidants and healthy fats, which makes them a healthy and delicious snack option. Eating roasted macadamia nuts may help to improve digestion, boost heart health, aid in weight loss, and regulate blood sugar levels.
Ways to Enjoy Toasted & Unsalted Macadamias
In addition to being a great snack, Vegan Macadamia Nuts Unsalted & Roasted can also be used in a variety of culinary dishes. They can be chopped and added to salads, stir-fries, eggs, and avocado toasts. They can also be used in baked goods like macadamia nut cookies, cakes, and waffles. For a sweet treat, you can make chocolate-covered macadamias by simply dipping them in melted chocolate and refrigerating them until they harden. Moreover, you can make macadamia nut butter by blending them in a food processor; because the nuts are already roasted, your spread will taste smoky and smooth at the same time.
