grown in the tropical rainforest
on the Big Island, Hawai'i
macadamia nuts are harvested hand picked to bring you the finest
washed clean while in shell and then allowed to dry at room temp for
hours and cracked out at 14% moisture.
uses a unique shell cracker they invented
patented. It cracks the wet shell (but not the nut meat) through
vibration at 14% moisture.
The nut that's extracted is fresher
because it has not been heated and dried in shell for
days which destroys the natural flavor.
what gave us the idea we could produce a macadamia nut that
tasted fresher and better than all the others?
we found a way
to crack the rock-hard shell without
smashing the kernel and without
heating the shell which alters the
natural flavor of the fresh nut meat inside.
Fresher Because They're Cracked Fresher.
flavor is extraordinary because the nut you're eating is actually fresher
than any macadamia you have ever eaten in the past.
bottom line is that
macadamia nut shells are cracked
fresh without tampering with the nut
has ever had access to
a macadamia nut this fresh!
Because of the difficulty in cracking,
processors have had to heat the shell
surrounding the treasured macadamia
nut itself, making it brittle and shrinking
the meat inside. It's brown and smooth--as
shown above and requires 300 pounds
of pressure to crack.
you can see why we got excited
when one of our clever owners,
Bill, invented a machine, called the Starcracker.
if you are in the mac nut processing business
see if this could work for you!
