Composition of macadamia nuts and oil

2009 | Anon | Research report/Update

Composition of cooked, unsalted macadamia nuts, fatty acid composition of macadamia nuts and vitamins in Hawaiian macadamia nuts.

Macadamia oil

1995 | Arnett G | Research report/Update

Some specifications and analysis of macadamia oil.

Analysis of macadamia nuts and pollen for a relationship in fatty acids

1993 | Taylor M | Research report/Update

Fatty acid analysis was undertaken for kernel and pollen to determine if there is any difference between cultivars and species available to the industry and any possible relationship between the pollen and the kernel fatty acids.

Fractionation of macadamia oil by refrigeration

1975 | Saleeb W | Research report/Update

Macadamia oil consists of both saturated and unsaturated fractions. This paper reports on an exploratory experiment to develop a method for increasing or decreasing the unsaturated fraction. Includes analysis of the fatty acids.

Fatty acid composition and oil characteristics of macadamia nuts

1973 | Saleeb W, Yermanos D | Research report/Update

Oil was extracted by pressing and by solvent and the fatty acid composition was determined. Includes nut and oil characteristic analysis of tetraphylla, integrifolia and hybrid.

Nutritive value of macadamia nut husks in ruminant rations

1970 | Campbell C, Lee J, Nolan C | Research report/Update

Rations containing macadamia nut husks at levels of 0, 12, 24, and 36 percent of the total ration were palatable for sheep and no digestive troubles were observed during the course of this trial. A significant reduction in the digestibility of ration components was observed when the level of husks was increased in both the concentrate and the roughage rations fed to sheep. Although the chemical analyses for crude protein and gross energy would indicate macadamia nut husks may have a place in rations for ruminant animals, the linear reduction in the digestibility of crude protein and gross energy with increasing levels of husks indicates some factor(s) in the husks was limiting the utilization of ration nutrients.

Comparative analysis of oil from Macadamia ternifolia, Macadamia integrifolia and olive oil

1935 | Cheel E | Research report/Update

An early analysis of oils obtained by expression and solvent methods.

Chemical examination of the fixed oil of the Queensland nut

1922 | Morrison A, Morrison F | Research report/Update

An article of historical interest in which an analysis was undertaken of the physical and chemical characteristics of the oil, including mixed fatty acids and separation of liquid and solid acids. Results indicate macadamia oil consists of a mixture of stearic and palmitic acids, and oleic acid. Linoleic acid is apparently absent.

Some oil-bearing seeds indigenous to Queensland: the seed of Macadamia ternifolia and its oil

1914 | Smith F, Meston L | Research report/Update

An article of historical interest: an analysis of macadamia oil concluding that it contains glycerides of oleic, palmitic and stearic acids with some proportion of glyceride of myristic acid.
