Avocado oil is produced from the fruit (avocado) of the avocado tree. Avocado oil is pressed from the pulp surrounding the pit, making it one of the few edible oils not derived from seed. This pulp produces an oil full of healthy fats!
The awesome thing about avocado oil is that it’s not only a superfood oil that can be used in uncooked items, but it’s also highly recommended for cooking. When using any oil for cooking, it is very important to consider the temperature at which the oil starts to visibly smoke in the pan. When an oil reaches its smoke point, the oil begins to break down, nutrients are lost and compounds can be created that are damaging to your health. Avocado oil’s high smoke point makes it a top choice in your kitchen every day of the week.
