Almost 70% of avocado oil consists of heart-healthy oleic acid, a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid that has been strongly associated with reduced risks of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure. Additionally, numerous studies have found that extracts from avocado oil, called avocado unsaponifiables, may reduce the pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis. Avocado oil is also a safe and healthy cooking oil because its fatty acids are stable at high heat.
Avocado Oil, having the botanical name Persea gratissima, is expeller pressed from the flesh of the fruit of the avocado tree. An avocado fruit, commonly referred to as an avocado pear or alligator pear, is unique in that it contains a single seed. Once the oil is pressed from the fruit, it goes through a refining process to result in a bland material in terms of aroma and flavor profile. The appearance of refined avocado oil can vary depending on the raw material from light yellow to a green to brown color. Avocado oil has been increasing in popularity and has become quite the versatile ingredient with applications ranging from food and beverage manufacturing, to cooking, and personal care and cosmetic formulations due to its beneficial impact known for the skin and hair.
