The effect of macadamia nuts on cardiometabolic risk factors and adiposity: a randomised intervention study (MC17005)

Key research provider: Loma Linda University

What’s it all about?

Contracted in August 2018, this investment is looking at the role of macadamia nuts in health, with the goal of adding to the scientific evidence base on the positive benefits of including macadamia nuts in the diet.

The research is specifically looking at the effects of macadamia nuts on body weight, obesity (‘adiposity’) and risk factors related to ‘cardiometabolic’ diseases, such as insulin resistance, high cholesterol, and other markers of cardiovascular health.
