NuCare has a division that manufactures roasted nut and nut bar products. In particular, we focus on the unique nut grown in Australia, macadamia nuts.

We have two popular macadamia nut products on the market:

  1. MACADAMIA NUT BARS available in different flavours such as original, coffee or coconut.
  2. ROASTED MACADAMIA NUTS available in different flavours, such as original or salted.


We have other nut products in our pipeline, and they will be marketed in the near future.

Macadamia is indigenous to north-eastern New South Wales, and central and south-eastern Queensland, Australia. It is the only native Australian plant to be cultivated as a food crop. The unique flavour and crunchy texture of the nut is now enjoyed all over the world as a health snack and a recipe ingredient.


Macadamias were discovered south of Brisbane in 1828 by the noted explorer and botanist Cunningham, and named in honour of Dr. John Macadam, the secretary of the Philosophical Institute of Victoria. Also known as the bush, Baphal or Queensland nut, macadamia nuts have been a prized delicacy of Australian indigenous people for thousands of years.


Macadamia nuts are a high energy food and a good source of protein and dietary fiber. They are high in mono-unsaturated fat, and contain 9% protein, 9% carbohydrate, and 2% dietary fiber. They contain a wide range of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. These nuts contain elements such as Potassium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Iron, Calcium, Zinc and Selenium, and Vitamins such as Thiamine (Vit.B1), Riboflavin (Vit.B2) and Niacin. Macadamia oil contains at least 78% mono-unsaturated fat, the highest of any oils including olive oil. An early study in 2003{1} found that macadamia nut consumption lowers plasma total and LDL-cholesterol levels in hypercholesterolemic men, and reduces the risk of heart disease. More recent research {2} has shown that macadamia nut-rich diet reduces total and LDL-cholesterol in mildly hypercholesterolemic men and women.


A handful (30g) of macadamias (15 whole or 30 halves) provides you with:


  • 1/3 of your daily thiamine (vitamin B1) requirement. This is an important vitamin for releasing the energy from food, and necessary for normal functioning of the heart and nervous system.
  • 1/4 of your daily manganese requirement. This is a trace element important for antioxidant defences, bone health and normal metabolism.
  • 12% of your daily magnesium requirement for electrolyte balance, nerve and muscle function and bone strength.
  • 9% of your daily iron requirement for healthy blood and energy levels.
  • 8% of your daily niacin requirement for a healthy nervous system, releasing energy from food, and good skin structure and function.
  • 8% of your daily copper requirement for antioxidant protection, immune system function, and healthy looking skin and hair.
