Where do you get your MUFA rich Macadamia Nut Oil and Avocado Oil?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created April 04, 2011 at 9:27 PM

I have been wanting to get my hands on some macadamia nut oil and avocado oil and I'm finally ready to. I searched online for a good 20 minutes and did not find anything in particluar that stood out as something I was compelled to get. I get the impression that not many companies make these oils. I prefer cold pressed, even though both are very heat resistant being so low in PUFA.

Does anyone here use these oils? What brand do you get and where do you get them from? (online is fine btw and I'd prefer to get them from the same vendor if at all possible).

Is there a difference because it's refined, rather than cold-pressed?

A+ for this pip. I already accepted akd's answer, and I will leave it that way, but this is a great source for 4 reasons: 1) appears to be excellent quality and cold-pressed. 2) 3 items or more equals free shipping 3) they have both oils I asked about. 4) they even sell in local stores all across the country, including at a Ralphs store just minutes away from my home. Since I never shop at Ralph's, I would not have found this. Thank you!

I second Mountain Rose, they're a great company. I buy a lot of herbs from them and I have bought their mac nut oil, best quality you will find.

You will need to scroll down the page of the above link. The oils are in alphabetical order. I see they also have avocado oil, which I don't use because I am allergic.

Bodybuilding.com has the cheapest organic macadamia nut oil. Which is still expensive! Less expensive (non-organic) gallon jugs are available elsewhere.

Dude, this is the cheapest place to get Macadmia Nut Oil or for that matter coconut oil. Don't freak out because it is on a site that provides for Soap Makers. This stuff is food grade. Otherwise you are going to pay though the nose for it. The place is called Soaper's Choice. Here is their web link: http://www.soaperschoice.com/cgi-soaperschoice/Web_store/web_store.cgi?query_price_low_range=0&cart_id=

Don't be misled. Refined avocado oil is generally cheaper because it has been processed and heated (and original product might not have been best quality) Virgin, cold press is what you're seeking. Also note, some offshore oils can be suspect. California avocado oil is superior to Florida oil because of the fruit. See more davoavocado.com

Soap.com is a decent source for the NOW Organic Mac Nut Oil. Plus, those folks are always running some sort of promotion (Groupon, Facebook, Twitter, et al.).

Amazon for sure. Bulk packaging makes it so much cheaper.

I get macadamia nut oil from whole foods, but it's expensive! I think I've also seen it on amazon. They have everything.
