Some things you’d like to know
milkadamia is not a company, it is a product made by Jindilli Beverages. Jindilli is the name of the farm where milkadamia originated. Jindilli is an indigenous word for macadamias. Jindilli Beverages is the US-based branch of a family business born out of the east coast of Australia.
The family-owned Jindilli farm is nestled near the Eastern coast of Australia in the very region where the macadamia tree originated. In a nutshell…the abundant rainfall, ample sunshine, rich soil, and low-impact farming is good for trees. Heart n’ soil – how good food is grown now.
While that’s how we started, we have outgrown the volume of macadamias from our trees. We source from neighbors and other Australian farmers and are also sourcing some macadamias from growers in South Africa. It is a commentary on climatic uncertainty that it is no longer safe to source from only one climatic region. We do of course still use our Jindilli macadamias as much as possible. A partner of ours is setting up Regenerative/Organic macadamia farms. We believe this is the best option long term. We are committed to supporting farms that go beyond sustainable to regenerative and will always prioritize regenerative farms.
Our 64oz milk and 16oz creamers are sold in the cooler section, while our 32oz milks are typically found either in the cereal aisle or in the healthy food section. Click here to find a store near you.
Only unadulterated macadamias are used in milkadamia, so the health and taste of our product remains intact. When polyunsaturated fats get exposed to heat, they are can become damaged or oxidized affecting both nut health and taste.

Macadamia oil has the highest ratio of heart-friendly monounsaturated fats among all the nuts and seeds – even more than olive oil. Because of their rich good fat profile, macadamias help reduce cholesterol levels and lower triglycerides.
Macadamias earned their superfood status via several studies that showed their efficacy in fighting inflammation, the first stage of most diseases of our generation – cancer, arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes to have a few. Macadamias have a beneficial ratio of Omega-6: and Omega-3.
While macadamias contain calcium, we also fortify with Calcium Phosphate, as listed in the ingredients.
approximately 190 milligrams of calcium per 100 grams.
approximately 5 milligrams of potassium per 100 grams.
Our natural flavors are proprietary – we have no desire to announce them to our competitors. It is not code for MSG – we do not have MSG in our products.
We fortify with a small amount of pea protein because added protein helps make our milks creamy. We chose pea protein because it doesn’t contain dairy, lactose, or soy, is naturally gluten-free, is easy on the stomach, is low carb friendly, and is cholesterol and saturated fat-free.
Not at all.
We use only non-GMO cane sugar to add a hint of sweetness to a few of our products. We also have several unsweetened products.
Our milks, creamers, and buttery spread are manufactured in the U.S.
milkadamia is NON-GMO Project Verified. We go many extra miles to ensure no GMOs are in any milkadamia products. Unfortunately, we have learned assurances and even signed certificates of compliance can mislead. At milkadamia, we are independently investigating for ourselves the source and provenance of every ingredient. We have had a couple of surprises and had to alter suppliers and/or formulations mid-stream. This is a task that will never be complete as our suppliers’ source from multiple regions. However, as a result of undertaking this arduous task for ourselves, we are confident our products are GMO-free and you can be also.
Latte Da was formulated for cafes. As such, it is made to foam via steam and not with a milk frother.
If you are allergic to peanuts, an allergy to macadamias is possible. Even though macadamia are the least allergenic of all tree nuts, it always best to ask your doctor first.
Our manufacturing facility does not process products that contain peanuts.

That is a yes for milkadamia Unsweetened and milkadamia Unsweetened Vanilla.
Again, the answer is a big YES. Read about it HERE.
If you found us in the cooler, keep us cooled. Otherwise, milkadamia is fine in your pantry until you open it. After opened, the fridge is your friend.
milkadamia stays fresh and tasty for 7-10 days in the fridge once opened.
The one-step cap does cause consternation for those not familiar. When you twist the cap one full turn, a cutting mechanism is activated (by prongs under the cap) and this cuts through the inner freshness seal.
You can, but we’ve consistently noticed that the consistency can change.
Yes, they are BPA free.
Yes, the packages are recyclable for the majority of US households. Visit recyclecartons.com for more information.

No. As coffee lovers here, we ensured milkadamia blends beautifully with coffee.
Plant-based milk is the perfect substitute for dairy milk. Non-dairy milk can be used as an even swap (1:1) in any recipe, including baking. That said, do pay attention to the variety as plant-milks come in sweetened, unsweetened and vanilla versions. These different varieties will impact the flavor. Visit our recipe section and give it a whirl.
Absolutely. Plant-based butter, including our very own buttery-spread, is made to replace dairy butter cup for cup.
Only our milkadamia Barista and milkadamia Unsweetened Barista are crafted for that perfect latte foam.
But of course. We prefer koala bears over rosettas, but to each their own.

Regenerative farming focuses on restoring the biodiversity and composition of the soil, which in turn creates better yields and nutrient dense plants…while sequestering carbon from the atmosphere and allowing our planet to breathe easier. Regenerative farming techniques include a mix of utilizing minimum tilling, cover crops, and feeding the soil with organic matter.
milkadamia has one macadamia farm – Jindilli farm. Not all the macadamia nuts we use in milkadamia come from our farm. However, the ones that do are grown using regenerative methods. We are still learning, life on Jindilli farm has become a knowledge quest for the best ways to build healthy new top-soil. We have plenty to learn, we are not fully there yet, but we are fully committed.
Our purpose for Jindilli Farm is to develop it into an influence for regenerative farming within our rural community and far beyond. However, our hope is that we will quickly become an irrelevance as folk give widespread support to regeneratively framed food.
Beyond Jindilli some Regenerative/Organic farms are in the works. Applying Regenerative methods to an Organic farm ensures consumers will be getting the benefits promised by both.
Ask. Ask the companies that you buy from if they use regenerative farmed methods. Ask your retailer what brands they stock that use regenerative farmed products. Ask the farmer at the farmer’s market you visit if they use regenerative farming techniques. If consumers ask and demand regenerative farmed products, farmers/brands/companies will switch. Look at what consumers have done thus far with dairy. Never underestimate the influence of your voice.
