Avocado Oil

Notes From The Producer

La Tourangelle Avocado Oil is 100% pure, all-natural and handcrafted from premium avocados. This gorgeous emerald green oil has a fine fruity roundness that makes it lovely for both sweet and savory applications. On salads, it contributes a hint of avocado flavor, and it is wonderful drizzled over slices of grapefruit and melon.

Usage
Avocado oil can be used the same way you use your extra virgin olive oil. But with a smoke point at 375ºF it is very practical to use in the kitchen for pretty much any application. On salads or in a dressing, it contributes a hint of avocado flavor, and it is wonderful drizzled over slices of fruits. Cook, bake, dress or simply dip, avocado oil will make it all.  

Storage

Store in a cool, dry place.

Temperature
Suitable for medium-high heat: Perfect for stir-frying, frying, sautéing, baking, dipping, blending into a dressing/sauce, or drizzling on a finished dish. Smoke point 375ºF.

Health benefits
While delicious for cooking, avocado oil, like olive oil and hazelnut oil, contains oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that may help to lower cholesterol. In one study of people with moderately high cholesterol levels, individuals who ate a diet high in avocados showed clear health improvements. After a few days on the diet that included avocados, they had significant decreases in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, along with an increase in health promoting HDL cholesterol.

Production process
Avocado oil is processed on equipment very similar to those used to process extra virgin olive oil. The avocado pulp is first expeller-pressed usually using a centrifuge. It is then lightly filtered and "polished" using another centrifuge. It takes from 15–20 avocados to make 1 ( one) 250 ml/8 ounce tin. The result is a beautiful, emerald green oil with high level of monounsaturated fats that will bring a delicious, light avocado flavor to your dishes.
