Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Oil is made from - you guessed it – pure avocados. They’re first cold pressed and then naturally refined. We use a proprietary low heat process that protects the nutrients and the delicate fatty acids. High in heart healthy fats, it is the perfect oil to use as a base for homemade mayo, Paleo salad dressing and all of your cooking needs.
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: baking, broiling, barbecuing, searing, sautéing, stir-frying and more!
Conventional oil refining practices tend to remove most of the beneficial nutrients with the use of chemicals and heat. We are able to retain most of them with our natural refining process that does not require the use of chemicals or high heat. Virgin Avocado Oil has a smoke point of only 250 degrees Fahrenheit, which is too low for cooking. By gently removing the chlorophyll, waxes and sediments found in virgin avocado oil, we are able to achieve a versatile cooking oil with a mild flavor and high smoke point. Our natural refining process is so gentle and unique that we are able to retain 80% of the beta-sitosterol found in virgin avocado oil, as well as 60% of the vitamin E!
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 known as beta-sitosterol.
