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.
Avocado oil is very easy to use. You can add it to salad dressings, smoothies, and marinades. You can also substitute it for other oils for baking, grilling, roasting, and frying. It is really great in so many applications.
Not only is avocado oil used in cooking and on foods to be ingested, it is also used topically on your skin for healthy skin care.
