Milkadamia, a producer of macadamia nut products, has launched its new line of macadamia nut cooking oils.
The savory umami shines through in the brand’s Oh Mommy! and the macadamia flavor gives dishes a delicate buttery taste. Both Oh Mommy! and Pure Macadamia flavors come in a 4.7-oz. spray that will retail for $11.99. The pure macadamia flavor also will be offered in an 8.5-oz. bottle which retails for $14.99.
The oil products are now available in Whole Foods stores across the country and will be rolled out to various retailers and on Amazon through the first quarter of 2021.
Milkadamia’s umami flavored oil has been formulated to make the taste of any dish smoky and “meaty” and is perfect for plant-based meats like Impossible or Beyond Burgers. In Japan, the meaty savory flavor that derives from salt and amino acids was named umami. It is commonly referred to as the fifth taste in the culinary lexicon —sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami.
In addition to its taste, the oil has benefits for the skin and soothes the gut.
“Macadamia oil has both the lowest percentage of saturated fat and highest content of healthy monounsaturated fats. They also boast the lowest percentage of inflammatory Omega-6 of any nut or seed oil. Our macadamia nut milks, creamers, butter and now cooking oils blend good health with exceptional taste,” said Jim Richards, CEO of Milkadamia.
Along with featuring the smooth taste of macadamia nuts, the oils have a high smoke point of 410 degrees, perfect for sautéing, frying and grilling. As macadamia oil contains zero sugars, it is ideally suited to ketogenic diets.
Milkadamia was started on an Australian family macadamia farm in 2015 and Milkadamia U.S. is headquartered in Burr Ridge, Illinois. It is sold in retailers across the U.S. as well as in more than 2,000 cafes. Every Milkadamia carton displays the rallying cry, “Moo is Moot.” Milkadamia is purposefully plant-based, believing that dairy has become irrelevant to the lives, health, aspirations and especially the eco-desires of millions.
