Chosen Foods avocado oil is made of 100% pure avocados - first cold pressed, then naturally refined. We use a proprietary low heat process, which protects the nutrients and the delicate fatty acids. By gently removing the chlorophyll, waxes, sediments and free fatty acids in the oil, we are able to achieve incredible cooking oil. Our processing is so unique we are able to retain 80% of the beta-stisterol found in virgin avocado oil, as well as 60% of the vitamin E! This is the perfect high mono-unsaturated oil to use as a base for homemade mayo, or Paleo salad dressing. Our avocado oil has a smooth, buttery flavor, and a smoke point of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit! There are many avocado oil uses when cooking: dressing, sauces, marinades, bake, broil, barbecue, sear, sauté or stir-fry! Chosen Foods avocado oil has as much monounsaturated fat as olive oil. Recent research suggests diets high in monounsaturated fat may help reduce or prevent heart disease. Avocado oil also contains natural vitamin E and the cardio-protective, anti-inflammatory agent beta-sitisterol. It';s often assumed that refined oils lack any beneficial nutrients. Chosen Foods avocado oil breaks this trend. Our unique processing preserves many of the beneficial nutrients found in virgin avocado oil, providing a unique, nutritious, high heat cooking oil.
