avocado-oil-200pxwI have recently discovered Avocado Oil at the Grocery store and I think it is my new favorite Ingredient.  My son is allergic to dairy so I have been using it as a butter substitute.  One major benefit of it is that it is heat tolerant. Unlike olive oil that can only be heated to about 365 to 400 degrees before it starts to smoke and breakdown, Avocado Oil can be heated to a hot 520 degrees.  This makes it a great oil to fry with.  Avocado oil has a buttery flavor so it great to substitute it in any recipe that calls for butter.  Avocados contain monounsaturated fats.  monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are alternatives that don’t negatively affect your body.  This makes avocado oil high in omega 3 and omega 6. Some other major health benefits of avocado oil is that is Controls and Modifies Blood Cholesterol, has anti aging properties, helps fight belly fat, is high in antioxidants, and is great for your hair and skin.
