UKWAZI: A Better Nut

File Jul 21, 13 18 31

People are discovering the benefits of introducing macadamias to their diets. Macadamias are thought to be very heart healthy, and evidence suggests that they can help prevent heart disease and clean out our arteries. Low in sodium, but a strong source for protein, calcium, and fiber; macadamias promote a host of health benefits including healthier skin and hair, clearing out toxins, and nourishing the nervous system. They also tend to be a more filling snack, and eating just a few can curb your snacking more efficiently than opting for something high in sugar. Macadamias make a great healthy snack, and are a high quality ingredient for baking and cooking.

Potential Health Benefits:
  • Helps prevent heart disease
  • Cleans out arteries
  • Good source of protein, calcium, and fiber
  • Promotes skin and hair health
  • Cleanses toxins
  • Good for nervous system
  • Helps to curb snacking

UKWAZI: A Better World

Our goal is to better the world, one nut at a time. UKWAZI macadamia nuts and macadamia oil are not only a healthier, tastier option than many other products on the market, but they provide jobs and educational opportunities to African citizens, too. When we planted over 14,000 macadamia trees on a 150 acre plot of land on African Christian College’s Swaziland campus beginning in 1997, we knew that we were growing more than an orchard—we were planting a seed to provide the means to nurture the development of future African leaders for years to come.


“Ukwazi,” in Zulu, means “knowledge.” It all started with the knowledge of the founding chairman of African Christian College, who discovered that the 150-acre patch of uncultivated land on campus contained the ideal soil and climate to produce the tastiest macadamia nuts the world has ever seen. Building upon that knowledge, a team of students, faculty and community members worked hard to learn how to grow and nurture a successful orchard, sparking the creation of the Tree of Life Project. An initiative to create a living endowment to fund African Christian College, the Tree of Life Project soon became the ultimate lesson in sustainability.
