Vegan Friendly | Sustainably Sourced | Naturally Grown
This semi-parasitical shrub in native to Western Australia where it produces hundreds of medium-sized nuts that are packed with nutrients that are essential for good health. Sandalwood Nuts are an incredible addition to granola, on top of yogurts, or as a great nut spread. Their protein and fibre content make them a valuable addition to your kitchen.
Sandalwood Oil has been used as an alternative medicine, yet the Australian Sandalwood Nut is filled with health benefits including:
- Ximenynic acid, one of the rarest fatty acids, which has been hailed as a strong anti-inflammatory, and powerful agent in the fight against aging.
- 3 times the dietary fibre as Macadamia Nuts, and double the protein (at 20g per 100g).
- With low carbs, each nut is jam-packed with Monounsaturated Omega 9 fatty acids - which has been proven to help reduce cholesterol and clean up arteries.
Each nut is picked from sustainable farms in Western Australia. Native to semi-arid regions of Western Australia, permaculture techniques are used to produce the highest quality nuts without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or even fertilizer.
Its delicate flavour is similar to Macadamia Nuts, and is a great Aussie replacement to almonds in cooking and baking. Some uses for the nurtritious Sandalwood Nut include: Sandalwood Nut Milk, Granola, and as a delicious addition in cakes that use almond meal (replace with Sandalwood Nuts).
It is commonly fried in butter and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon for a crunchu, sweet dessert, or to be used in a trail mix when hiking or camping. One of our favourite uses for Sandalwood Nuts is sprinkling a bowl with Pepperleaf and salt for a delicious party snack.
