La Tourangelle

La Tourangelle Avocado Oil is 100% pure, all-natural and handcrafted from premium avocados. This gorgeous emerald green oil has a fine fruity roundness that makes it lovely for both sweet and savory applications. On salads, it contributes a hint of avocado flavor, and it is wonderful drizzled over slices of grapefruit and melon.

Usage:

Avocado oil can be used the same way you use your extra virgin olive oil. But with a smoke point at 375ºF it is very practical to use in the kitchen for pretty much any application. On salads or in a dressing, it contributes a hint of avocado flavor, and it is wonderful drizzled over slices of fruits. Cook, bake, dress or simply dip, avocado oil will make it all.

Storage:

Refrigerate after opening.

Temperature:

Suitable for medium-high heat: Perfect for stir-frying, frying, sautéing, baking, dipping, blending into a dressing/sauce, or drizzling on a finished dish. Smoke point 375ºF.

Health Benefits:

While delicious for cooking, avocado oil, like olive oil and hazelnut oil, contains oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that may help to lower cholesterol. In one study of people with moderately high cholesterol levels, individuals who ate a diet high in avocados showed clear health improvements. After a few days on the diet that included avocados, they had significant decreases in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, along with an increase in health promoting HDL cholesterol.

Production Process:

Avocado oil is processed on equipment very similar to those used to process extra virgin olive oil. The avocado pulp is first expeller-pressed usually using a centrifuge. It is then lightly filtered and "polished" using another centrifuge. It takes from 15–20 avocados to make 1 ( one) 250 ml/8 ounce tin. The result is a beautiful, emerald green oil with high level of monounsaturated fats that will bring a delicious, light avocado flavor to your dishes.
