Cracked, unseparated macadamia nuts are just that...the macadamia nuts have been cracked and the kernel hasn't been separated from the shells.
Quality macadamia nuts are about 35% kernel and 65% shell. These nuts have only been cracked and the bits smaller than 1/4" have been sifted out. In these you get the good, the bad and the ugly.
They are ideal for someone who wants unprocessed, raw macadamia nuts but doesn't want to pay the full expense of the separation process. They also provide a high quality food source for parrots that cannot crack macadamia nuts themselves.
