For many homes in South Africa, Avocado Oil is still “the new kid on the block”.

Avocado Oil has a higher smoke point so it can be used in a variety of cooking methods. In baking, Avocado Oil is great as it is creamy, just like an avocado.

Some scientific literature suggests that avocado might help prevent metabolic syndrome.

Avocado oil has one of the highest levels of healthy monounsaturated fats of all oils and it is also low in polyunsaturated fats.

Avocado Oil has a neutral taste and although it is more expensive than canola oil or sunflower oil, it is not the most expensive oil.

    1. Sorry the delay; I summarise of our supplier’s response below.
      The oil is
      1) pressed from the flesh of avocado pears,
      2) neutralized, at 70°C to bring the free fatty acids to a level not exceeding 0.3%
      3) bleached (at 120°C)
      4) winterised (chilled to 5°C (to remove the wax components)) and
      5) deodorised (at 205°C)
      There are no additives.
      The oil isn’t hydrogenated, and the level of trans fatty acids is consequently undetectable.
