La Tourangelle Avocado Oil is 100% pure, all-natural and handcrafted from premium avocados. 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. The result is a beautiful, emerald green oil with high level of monounsaturated fats that will bring a delicious, light fruity flavor to your dishes. La Tourangelle Avocado Oil, like La Tourangelle Olive 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. The purity of La Tourangelle Avocado Oil makes it also an ideal partner to moisturizing your skin and hair. The skin absorbs it quickly without leaving residues. It has a light weight that’s easily absorbed into the hair and scalp to moisturize.
