Avocado Carrier & Cooking Oil Unrefined
Avocados find their roots in Central America. Also known as Persea americana, the avocado was labeled the ''fruit of kings''. These luscious pear-shaped wonders are considered one of the most nutritious fruits on earth. That's because avocados contain at least 75% monosaturated fats.
The edible pulp of the avocado, which surrounds the seed, contains from 8 to 30% of a non-drying oil. Oil is separated by dehydrating the pulp, then pressing.
Avocado oil has a light, but unique flavor that makes it an excellent choice for salad dressings or for use as a condiment.
Refined avocado oil has the highest smoke point of any plant oil (255 C), so it is useful for high heat cooking. It can be infused with lemon, rosemary, basil or chili. It is a good source of monounsaturated fat and vitamin E, which makes it nutritionally beneficial.
This unique, nutty-flavoured oil may be used in whipped potatoes, drizzled over steamed vegetables, in vinaigrette dressings, for sautéing, soups ands stews.
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.
Medium to heavy weight oil suitable for massage. Use up to one-fourth to a cream or salve base. Contains vitamins A, B, and D and is rich in lecithin. Has beneficial effect on dry skin and wrinkles. Add to soap recipes for a more moisturizing bar.
Try it in a gentle baby soap or maybe a shaving soap for true luxury! We often find avocado oil in expensive creams and lotions. Or, for the ultimate indulgence try a massage oil with avocado oil.
