MACADAMIA NUT OIL has one of the highest concentrations of monounsaturated fats (oleic acid) of available oils. This incredible omega-9 fat, oleic acid, helps maintain a healthy heart. In fact, it's considered the gold standard for optimizing the health of our internal environment. MACADAMIA NUT OIL is so high in monounsaturated fats (84-85% by weight) that it even surpasses extra virgin olive oil (65-74% by weight).**
IDEAL RATIO OF ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS
MACADAMIA NUT OIL has a perfect ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids, 1:1. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate an equal balance (1:1 ratio) of linoleic acid (Omega-6) to alpha linolenic acid (Omega-3) essential fatty acids (EFAs). Junk food, rampant vegetable oil use, and the feeding of grain to food animals (even fish) have resulted in our current consumption ratios rising to a scary 20:1 ratio.**
GREAT FOR COOKING
MACADAMIA NUT OIL has an extremely high smoke point (410 degrees), which means it's excellent for stir-fry and baking. Olive oil has a much lower smoke point (325 degrees or less) and it degrades when used in cooking. MACADAMIA NUT OIL has a sweet buttery taste, is resistant to oxidation, and is extremely high in vitamin E (four times higher than olive oil) making it the ideal heart-healthy, performance-enhancing, fat.**

Can be drizzled over salads and other food, but its very high smoke point makes it great for cooking.
