A round, hard shelled nut that has a rich coconut-like flavor and crisp texture. Originated in Australia but is also grown in Central America and Hawaii. The nuts can be purchased shelled or unshelled, raw or dry roasted, and salted or unsalted. The macadamia nut's nutritional value is that it contains no cholesterol and is low in saturated fats and sodium. The monounsaturated fat (the good fat) content is over 80% of the total fat contained in the nut, which is more than what is contained in olive oil. It has been shown that monounsaturated fat reduce the risk of heart disease.
