Is It Dangerous To Eat
Avocado Pits?
By EMILY BOYETTE
It has been stated that fruits like avocado, jackfruit, longan, mango, and tamarind have seeds that contain 70% more antioxidants than the edible fruit itself. Avocado pits have soluble fiber in them, and high amounts of phosphorus and potassium, as well as lower cholesterol and improve the function of the heart.
The avocado pit can either be dried out by sitting it on a sunny windowsill for several days before cutting it into small pieces, or it can be carefully split in half before being blended. Then, much as with nuts, you can add them to smoothies, salad dressings, desserts, sauces, soups, stews, oats, and grain bowls.
While avocado seeds ‌provide certain health advantages, they also contain a lot of substances that serve as anti-nutrients and can be harmful if ingested in large quantities. These substances, such as saponins, tannins, oxalates, and phytates, prevent nutrients like iron, calcium, zinc, and magnesium from being absorbed.
