Macadamia oil is made from the Macadamia nuts that are native to Australia. The nuts are often salted and roasted or are a common ingredient in chocolates and confectionary. They have an amazing nutty and buttery flavour and the creamiest texture. The nuts are super rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, and Vitamin B.

Now that you have become familiar with the nuts, let us talk about macadamia oil. When we talk about cooking oil, what usually comes to mind is olive oil or sunflower oil or even canola oil. But what you don’t know is that the macadamia oil is also used for cooking.

One of the most prominent features of its increasing use is its high heat capacity, sometimes referred to as a high smoking point. I know what you are thinking; up to a specific temperature, the oil starts burning, and as a result, its taste gets bitter. When talking about macadamia oil, its heat capacity is 210 to 230 degrees centigrade. This is higher than most oils, which means you can use this oil without worrying about change in its taste or the food you are cooking. How convenient is that!
