Avocado is the fruit of the avocado tree or Persea Americana, a tree native to the Western Hemisphere from Mexico south to the Andean regions. Avocado fruits have greenish or yellowish flesh with a buttery consistency and a very rich, nutty taste. Avocados are rich in thiamin, riboflavin, and vitamin A, and in some varieties, the flesh contains as much as 25 percent unsaturated oil.
The best thing about avocado oil is that it’s not only a superfood oil that can be used in uncooked items like salads and dips, but it’s also highly recommended for cooking. Avocado oil has a high smoke point that makes it a top choice in your kitchen every day of the week.
One tablespoon of avocado oil contains about 124 calories and 14 grams of fat, which is 21 percent of the recommended daily fat intake. Although that fat percentage might seem high, 9.9 of the 14 grams are monounsaturated healthy fat and 1.9 grams are polyunsaturated fat (also a healthy fat). Avocados don’t contain any cholesterol or trans fats and are rich in vitamin E.
