Avocado oil is an edible oil extracted from the pulp of the avocado, the fruit of Persea americana. It is used as an edible oil both raw and for cooking, where it is noted for its high smoke point. It is also used for lubrication and in cosmetics.
Avocado oil works well as a carrier oil for other flavors. It is high in monounsaturated fats and vitamin E, and also enhances the absorption of carotenoids and other nutrients.
After drying the avocado flesh to remove as much water as possible (the flesh is about 65% water), the cosmetic oil is usually extracted with solvents at high temperatures. After extraction, it is usually refined, bleached and deodorized, resulting in an odorless yellow oil. Edible cold-pressed avocado oil is generally unrefined, like extra virgin olive oil, so it retains the flavor and color characteristics of the flesh of the fruit.
Avocado oil is one of the few edible oils that does not come from a seed. It is pressed by the fleshy pulp that surrounds the pit of the avocado. Unrefined avocado oil from the 'Hass' variety has a distinctive flavor, is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and has a high smoke point (≥250 °C or 482 °F), making it a good oil for frying. Hass cold pressed avocado oil is a brilliant emerald green when extracted. the color is attributed to high levels of chlorophyll and carotenoids. It has been described as having an avocado flavor, with grass and butter/mushroom flavors. Other varieties may produce oils with a slightly different flavor profile. 'Fuerte' has been described as having more mushroom and less avocado flavor.
Avocado oil has a similar monounsaturated fat profile to olive oil. Avocado oil is naturally low in acidity, helping to raise the smoke point. Unrefined avocado oil can be safely heated to 480°F (249°C). Both raw and refined avocado oil can be safely used for almost any high-heat cooking, including baking, frying, grilling, barbecuing, and sautéing. Like all oils, the more refined, the higher the smoke point. Each 30 mL of avocado oil contains 3.6 mg of vitamin E and 146.1 mg of beta-sitosterol.
