Optimum wellbeing and fitness are incredibly important to Hannah and Nico who have a clear understanding of the body’s basic need for healthy fats as part of a balanced diet. This Is Good enlisted the assistance of highly respected, experienced and qualified nutritionist, food writer and broadcaster Fiona Hunter who assessed the oil’s properties and health benefits. Fiona describes the product as: “Buttery in taste and a fantastic alternative to coconut oil due to its lower saturated fat content and higher monounsaturated fat content”.
Monounsaturated fat is a fat group rarely spoken of and that consumers know little about. This Is Good like to refer to monounsaturated fat as “the good fat that helps reduce the fat cells in the body caused by the consumption of saturated fats”. Using This Is Good Macadamia Nut Oil for every day cooking, as opposed to coconut oil which contains a significantly higher percentage of saturated fats and no monounsaturated fats, will assist with decreasing risk of heart disease and lowering the bodies cholesterol levels.
This Is Good work closely with their macadamia nut supplier, Green Farm Nuts Co. in South Africa to ensure that each bottle has the perfect ratio of essential fatty acids, high in monounsaturated fats and low in saturated fats. This is Good boasts a 15% saturated fat content and 76% monounsaturated fat (per 100ml), compared to coconut oil which contains 83% saturated fat and 6% monounsaturated fat (per 100ml).
