Avocado oil can be used the same way you use your extra virgin olive oil, but with a smoke point at 425ºF it is very practical to use in the kitchen for pretty much any application. On salads or in a dressing, it contributes a hint of avocado flavor, and it is wonderful drizzled over slices of fruits. Cook, bake, dress or simply dip, avocado oil will make it all. Just tried it on popcorn and it was amazing! Should be refrigerated after opening. Perfect for stir-frying, frying, sauteing, baking, dipping, blending into a dressing/sauce, or drizzling on a finished dish. Smoke point 425ºF. Avocado oil, like olive oil 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.
