Avocado oil is one of the richest sources of monounsaturated fats known. It's great for drizzling and dressings, and thanks to a flash point of 520° F – it is an excellent oil to use for cooking at high temperatures.
And here are two more reasons you should include this healthy staple in your pantry:
Avocado oil enables the body to absorb 17 times more carotenoids. These are the powerful antioxidant nutrients that give your salad its vibrant green, yellow and red colors and guard your cells from antioxidant damage.
Avocado oil has twice the lutein as olive oil (this carotenoid nutrient provides powerful protection against macular degeneration).
