The Unique Way Avocado Oil Is Produced
One of the best things about avocado oil is its many health benefits, such as improving skin and hair, and lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. As for its culinary uses, avocado oil's high smoke point makes it an excellent option for frying and sautéing.
Despite these benefits, and the long history of avocado production, using the fruit's oil for cooking is a relatively new idea. It wasn't until the 1990s that some culinary pioneers in New Zealand invented the unique method used to create avocado oil.
The unique method used to make avocado oil is called cold pressing, where a powerful machine presses the flesh of the avocado without additional heat or chemical additives. This press creates a batch of mashed avocados running through a centrifuge, which separates the avocado's flesh, oil, and water, and the oil is then bottled.
