Have you ever had the pleasure of eating an avocado? If you have, then you know it’s different from other fruits. But did you know why the appeal of avocados is so much more than its use as the main ingredient in guacamole?

Here’s why.

Unlike most other fruits, it’s rich in healthy fats and is often used to produce avocado oil. And, though it’s not as well-known as olive oil, it’s just as delicious.

Avocado oil is obtained by pressing the flesh of ripe avocados, resulting in a nutrient-rich oil with a light green color and a mild, buttery flavor. It is primarily composed of healthy monounsaturated fats, particularly oleic acid, along with small amounts of other beneficial compounds such as vitamins E and K, and various antioxidants.

Avocado oil has a versatile range of culinary and cosmetic applications. In the kitchen, it is commonly used for cooking, frying, sautéing, and salad dressings, thanks to its high smoke point and delicate flavor. In skincare and haircare products, avocado oil is valued for its moisturizing properties and ability to nourish and hydrate the skin and hair.

The health benefits and advantages of avocado oil are many. The high monounsaturated fat content in avocado oil, particularly oleic acid, is associated with improved heart health. Avocado oil is rich in vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids that promote skin and hair health. And, it has been shown to enhance the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients, such as vitamins A, D, E, and K, when consumed with other foods.

So, who’s driving the recent surge in popularity for this previously under-appreciated oil?

A diverse range of consumers, that’s who. Given avocado oil’s considerable culinary appeal, home cooks, professional chefs, and those interested in incorporating healthier fats into their diets are big fans. It also appeals to health-conscious individuals, vegetarians, and vegans looking for plant-based alternatives to animal fats.

In the natural skincare movement, the consumer trend is towards natural and organic skincare products which has fueled demand for avocado oil as a natural, plant-based ingredient with moisturizing and anti-aging properties.

So, it stands to reason that discriminating consumers choose avocado oil and products that feature avocado oil based on quality, purity, and the expectation of superior performance. And the packaging that imparts brand distinction equal to this premium oil is none other than aluminum.
