AVOCADO OIL

 

See also: Avocados I; Avocados II; Avocados, Nutrient Booster; Avocado Trivia

Australian and New Zealand avocado farmers and imaginative food professionals have invented a new oil – avocado oil. Avocados are grown in many countries, but the idea of extracting oil from this popular fruit is slowly becoming reality.

This unique, nutty-flavoured oil may be used in whipped potatoes, drizzled over steamed vegetables, in vinaigrette dressings, for sautéing, soups ands stews.
Avocado oil has a high smoke point (255 C) and can be infused with lemon, rosemary, basil or chili.

Premium avocado oil is cold-pressed much like olive oil and is rich in vitamins E, D and E, and known to lower LDL levels. Studies conducted show that avocado oil reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes and prostate incidence.. It is free of trans fatty acids and cholesterol-inducing fats.
 
Avocado oil has a higher viscosity than olive oil, and texturally is more pleasant than all other oils.
