La Tourangelle 100% Avocado Oil 500ml
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 savory applications. La Tourangelle avocado oil is a high-quality and pure oil that can be used also for skin and hair care or in DIY cosmetic recipes.
Usage: Avocado oil is not only a super food 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. As a cosmetic oil, avocado oil is a great hair conditioner and thickener. Apply La Tourangelle avocado oil on your hair, and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then wash thoroughly with shampoo.
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.
Heat: Medium-high heat
