Macadamia flour, organic

Description of the product

Our organic Macadamia flour is made from 100% fine macadamia nuts and is characterised by its slightly nutty flavour, which allows a wide range of applications. It has a high content of the minerals potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. Macadamia flour is suitable for vegan diets and is also gluten-, lactose- and soy-free.
The white-beige Macadamia flour has a typical smell and taste. It can be stored for at least 18 months.
Blanched Macadamia nuts, organic of the Macadamia Integrifolia species, are partially de-fatted by mechanical pressing. The obtained raw protein is then finely ground by using Kryonert® technology. The entire production process takes place in Germany.

Active ingrediens

The cashew tree, which is native to Brazil, is also called kidney tree. Since the 1970s, the majority of cashew kernels have been produced in African countries. Gebana Afrique is a pioneer in the processing of raw cashew nuts in Burkina Faso. Since the first contacts with farmers in 2000, the activity has grown steadily. The laborious processing is done 100% by hand, while in other production regions the transformation of cashew is a semi-industrial process. Today, gebana Afrique transforms 850 tons of raw cashew into 150 tons of cashew nuts every year.
gebana Afrique's economic activities generate income for thousands of families in Burkina Faso, one of the poorest countries in the world. By investing in the existing infrastructure, gebana is linked to the farmers in the long term and shares all risks that could affect production.

Application food

With its unique and nutty taste, it can be used e.g. for the production of small power balls or bars together with dried fruits, added to mueslis, smoothies and protein shakes or serve as a base for the preparation of vegan ice cream.

Organic premium cultivation

Nachhaltigkeit spielt für AOT eine entscheidende Rolle. Von Anfang an haben wir auf biologische Landwirtschaft gesetzt. Sie schont das Klima, sorgt für Bodenfruchtbarkeit und schützt die Umwelt. Auf synthetische Düngemittel und Pestizide wird verzichtet. Selbstverständlich werden die Macadamiabäume unseres Anbau-Partners kontrolliert biologisch bewirtschaftet.
Mit unserem Bio-Macadamiamehl unterstützen wir kleinbäuerliche Strukturen in Kenia. Unser Fair-For-Life-zertifizierter Anbaupartner bietet neben landwirtschaftlichen Fortbildungen für die Kleinbauern auch Unterstützung im medizinischen Bereich und engagiert sich für Schulen oder ein Müllentsorgungsprojekt. Damit wird die Infrastruktur vor Ort gestärkt, so dass die Kleinbauern mit ihren Familien nicht in die Slums nach Nairobi abwandern müssen.
