Avocado oil has become one of the hottest new oils to hit the market in
the last ten years. What makes Avocado oil so attractive to so many
chefs and home cooks is the extremely buttery texture Avocado oil
brings, along with a rich flavor and versatile cooking ability. This oil
is best for high heat applications like sautéing, frying and
all-purpose cooking. It is also excellent for skin care and massage.
The Health Benefits Of Avocado Oil: Avocados and Avocado oil are rich in monounsaturated fats, which work to lower bad, LDL cholesterol levels in the blood. Avocado oil contains the highest levels of alpha and beta carotene, which protect against heart disease (it has been approved as a heart-healthy oil by the New Zealand and Australian Heart Foundations). Partnered with a large amount of Vitamin E, Avocado oil is one of the healthiest and versatile oils available.
How to Use Avocado Oil:
* For dressing, pour avocado oil on any salad or vegetable and let it sit for an hour to take up the fragrant and delicate flavours of the oil. Sprinkle a little grated cheese with the salad and you have a wonderful combination.
* Instead of pouring butter over hot potatoes and greens, use healthy and natural avocado oil and get the benefit of an enriched flavour from a product that is much better for your body.
* For a snack or an entrée to a meal, pour some avocado oil and olive oil into separate bowls as a dip for hot bread, straight from the oven.
* Use avocado oil for frying or sauteing to enjoy healthier meals without setting off the smoke alarm!
