In this blog post, we'll dive deep into the world of avocado oil and explore what makes it pure, its benefits, and how to ensure you're buying the best product for your kitchen. 

What is 100% Pure Avocado Oil? 

Pure avocado oil is made from 100% avocado fruit. No other oils, fillers, or chemicals are added during the extraction process. However, due to the lack of strict regulations for cooking oils, some avocado oils may be labeled as 100% pure even when they aren't. This makes it extra difficult for consumers to determine if what they are buying is indeed pure avocado oil. 

How Can You Tell if Avocado Oil is Pure?

As a consumer, it's important to be aware of the myths and misinformation surrounding avocado oil and to conduct your own research before making a purchase. It's not always easy or possible to determine if an avocado oil is pure just by looking at the label, as some brands may use misleading marketing tactics & it looks exactly the same as 100% pure avocado oil. To ensure you are buying a high-quality, pure avocado oil, it's important to review the brand's website, FAQs, and other information to determine what steps they take to ensure purity and quality in their processes.  

Do Your Own Research 

By doing your own research, you can gain a better understanding of their processes and ensure you are buying a high-quality product. Additionally, be cautious of avocado oil that is priced significantly lower than other brands, as this may indicate that the oil has been diluted with other oils or fillers. Taking the time to research and choose a reputable brand will ensure that you are getting a pure and high-quality avocado oil that will provide the health benefits and delicious flavor you are looking for.
