La Tourangelle Avocado Oil is 100% pure, all-natural and handcrafted from premium avocados. This gorgeous emerald green oil has a fine fruity roundness that makes it lovely for both sweet and savoury applications. On salads, it contributes a hint of avocado flavour, and it is wonderful drizzled over slices of grapefruit and melon.Health Benefits: While delicious for cooking, avocado oil, like olive oil and hazelnut oil, contains oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that may help to lower cholesterol. In one study of people with moderately high cholesterol levels, individuals who ate a diet high in avocados showed clear health improvements. After a few days on the diet that included avocados, they had significant decreases in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, along with an increase in health promoting HDL cholesterol.Usage: Avocado oil can be used the same way you use your extra virgin olive oil. But with a smoke point at 375ºF it is very practical to use in the kitchen for pretty much any application. On salads or in a dressing, it contributes a hint of avocado flavour, and it is wonderful drizzled over slices of fruits. Cook, bake, dress or simply dip, avocado oil will make it all.  Storage: Refrigerate after opening.Temperature: Suitable for medium-high heat: Perfect for stir-frying, frying, sautéing, baking, dipping, blending into a dressing/sauce, or drizzling on a finished dish.
