Applications/Techniques

Avocado oil can be used the same way you use your extra virgin olive oil. But with a smoke point at 520ºF 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.

History

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. 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.
