We have introduced our new Organic Avocado Oil—100% pure and extracted from the pulp of organic avocados grown in Mexico. Our oil is not chemically refined, but heated, filtered, and steam refined to improve shelf life. It has a mild taste and high smoke point (520°F), making it popular as a cooking oil, but it can also be used on salads, marinades, and condiments. Nutritionally, avocado oil is very similar to olive oil. Both are primarily made up of oleic acid, a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid (heart-healthy fat) and have been shown to reduce inflammation and protect against heart disease. Avocado oil is also rich in vitamin E antioxidant that reduces oxidative stress by combating free radicals in your body and lutein, an antioxidant that especially benefits eye & skin health.
