Did you know that a single macadamia tree produces nuts for over 100 years? The first macadamia nut trees were found in the rainforests of eastern Australia thousands of years ago by the Aborigines.
Today, they are a widely popular nut enjoyed by people across the globe. Though macadamia nuts may be toxic to dogs, they are very nutritious for humans to eat. High in protein and carbohydrates, these nuts also contain calcium, iron, potassium, and dietary fiber. Macadamia nut oil is also found in cosmetics and other skincare products because of its oxidative stability.
Celebrate National Macadamia Nut Day by simply snacking on them or baking a batch of macadamia nut cookies!
