Avocado oil, a hype or trend? 23-08-2019

Avocado oil and its origin

The avocado tree finds its origin in Mexico. An avocado tree can reach a height of 20 meters and is not resistant to winter. The fruit flesh is buttery and light green of color, the taste is nutty and is mostly used in healthy dishes. The fruit is not only used for avocado oil, it is also a great way to loose weight. Because it has saturated applications, people who are overweighted will be less tempted to eat.

Plantations in Africa, Spain and other European countries are also growing rapidly. The variation in avocado oil are huge, there are avocado oil producers that press the whole avocado (with skin, flesh and kernel). There are also oil producers who only press avocado oil from the fruit flesh. A wide variety of colors, origins and taste is the result.

An avocado from Kenia is not the same as an avocado from Mi Some plantations only pick the avocado’s that fell off the tree, some pick them off the three. The taste will become more bitter with avocado’s that did not ripe enough. You can always ask your supplier for this information.
