Nutworks Macadamia & Chocolate Factory


I love travelling out to see the producers of the amazing products we sell at Gourmet Living and whilst I was in Queensland earlier this year I couldn't pass up the opportunity to drive to Yandina and check out this amazing factory.

Nutworks and the Chocolate Factory is about a 20 minute drive from Maroochydore in one of Australia's largest natural growing macadamia regions. Macadamia trees can take 10-15 years to reach maturity and they grow to heights of approximately 15 metres. In Australia the majority of macadamia trees are in Northern New South Wales & South Eastern Queensland.

Harvesting usually takes place between March & September and here at Nutworks you can view the macadamia processing between April & November.

Macadamias are a nutritional powerhouse like most fruits & vegetables. The natural oil in macadamias is monounsaturated fat which is usually described as 'good oil'. At Gourmet Living we have Nutworks macadamia oil which can be extremely versatile in your everyday cooking.

 

So if you are in Queensland be sure to pop into Nutworks & the Chocolate Factory for a visit and some free tastings.

 

Some health benefits of Macadamias are:
  • Contains Plant Omega 3 fats
  • Improves cholesterol levels
  • Very low in sodium
  • A rich source of healthy fats
