Usage: Avocado oil is not only a superfood oil that can be used in uncooked items like salads and dips, but it’s also highly recommended for cooking because it has a higher smoke point than olive oil. Rich and thick with a buttery sensation but no overwhelming flavors, it is wonderful in salad dressings, on fresh-cut fruit, grilled fish or sautéed veggies.
Whisking It: Incorporate our wholesome organic avocado oil in your vinaigrettes, sauces and drizzles for a fresh burst of flavor on salads and home-cooked meals.
Cooking It: Use our artisan avocado oil as a base for stir-frying, grilling and marinades for meat.
Wearing It: Avocado oil is not just beneficial in your kitchen — it is useful for your beauty routine. As a cosmetic oil, avocado oil is a great hair conditioner and thickener.

How it is made: Avocado oil is processed on equipment very similar to those used to process extra virgin olive oil. The avocado pulp is first expeller-pressed usually using a centrifuge. It is then lightly filtered and “polished” using another centrifuge. It takes from 15–20 avocados to make 1 ( one) 250 ml/8 ounce tin.
Health Benefits: Avocado oil contains good fat: mostly monounsaturated fat or MUFA (around 70% of its fatty acid profile). These are the ones that have a powerful effect on high cholesterol, weight, belly fat etc…. Therefore, it is a great substitute for “bad” fats (saturated fats or trans fats) mainly found in traditional animal-derived grease (like butter or lard) and heavily processed goods. La Tourangelle Avocado Oil is naturally and lightly processed and confers important nutrients from the avocado pulp such as antioxidants, potassium, and vitamin A.
