La noix de Macadamia et son huile : Macadamia integrifolia Maiden et Betche, Protéacées

Abstract : Macadamia integrifolia Maiden et Betche is a tree which belongs to Proteaceae family and growths under subtropical latitudes. It provides Macadamia nut, rich in oil which contains lots of monounsaturated fatty acids, particularly palmitoleic acid. Australian aboriginies already ate this nut. Macadamia tree is nowadays cultivated for its nuts and oil, for alimentary and cosmetic uses. Clinical studies have proved its benefic effect on blood cholesterol thanks to its richness in palmitoleic acid, which also explains its use in cosmetics. The interest for this nut is not only based on gustative qualities: researches have therefore justified the increasing consumption and the use of oil.
