Item catalog number: 1826

You can travel the world over, and not find a more perfect cooking oil than Macadamia Nut Oil. Its naturally high smoke point (400-450 degrees Fahrenheit) allows for excellent cooking versatility, and even helps reduce the production of trans fatty acids. To ensure quality and purity, NOW® Macadamia Nut Oil uses only unrefined, unhybridized macadamias. These organically grown nuts are superior in quality and account for its unique nutritional profile. At 81% monounsaturated fat, 2% polyunsaturated fat and an incredibly low 2.2 grams of saturated fat, NOW® Macadamia Nut Oil has one of the healthiest unsaturated to saturated fat ratios, even greater than that of olive oil. To retain the naturally occurring vitamins and enzymes, we rely on an expeller press and double filtration process. This, coupled with its delicious nutty flavor, makes Macadamia Nut Oil the perfect complement to chicken, fish, vegetables, stir fry and salad dressings.

Shake well before use. Store in a cool, dry and dark place. Ingredient:  Organic Macadamia Nut Oil (Pure.  Unrefined, Expeller Pressed). Certified Organic by Quality Assurance International. Warning:  Please use caution when heating oils and fats.  Please note:  Oil burns if overheated,  DO NOT leave oil unattended when heating, DO NOT pour water on hot or flaming oil, DO NOT pour hot oil into any plastic bottle. Certified Organic by Quality Assurance International.

NOW's Mission

The NOW mission is: To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods. In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW

In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed – NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.
