Olivado Extra Virgin Avocado Oil

Olivado Extra Virgin Avocado Oil is quite simply, the pressed juice of New Zealand's finest quality ripe Avocados. We can call it Extra Virgin because its pressed at temperatures below 55 degrees F, and contains an acid content of 0.2%, far below the 1% required for the Extra Virgin designation.  In addition, no heat or solvents are ever used to extract the oil from the fruit.  Cold pressing retains all the powerful plant sterols which make the avocado one of the worlds healthiest fruits. Olivado determined that the skins and stones add bitterness and reduce shelf stability and so perfected the process of removing both from the avocado prior to pressing.  They also found that second quality fruit effected the flavor profile, so they use only ripe fruit that has no damage or bruises in the pressing.  They utilize an Alpha Laval and Bertuzzi production process with an exclusive proprietary step added to fully shelf stabilize the product.

The result?  A product far superior to olive oil in many ways.  An oil which has the rich, buttery, delicate taste profile of ripe avocados, while maintaining all the health properties of the worlds most nutritious wonder fruit, in a delicious, versatile, shelf stable oil that can be used as an alternative to olive oil in any recipe.  Unlike olive oil, Olivado Extra Virgin Avocado Oil is never bitter, will not burn, and won’t overpower your recipes, while maintaining is superior health benefits which far exceed those of its “poor” cousin. In addition, its high in heart healthy monounsaturated fat, has no cholesterol, no carbohydrates, and is all natural, with no additives or preservatives.

Taste:  Olivado Extra Virgin Avocado Oil has a deliciously rich, buttery, smooth flavor that will enhance rather than overpower your recipe.  It is never bitter, and adds a wonderful flavor to any dish.  Use as a salad dressing, cooking oil, for vegetable drizzling, bread dipping, marinade, etc.

Health  Olivado Avocado Oil is quite simply, the healthiest edible oil available.  It contains the highest levels of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and omega 3 fatty acids, which lower blood cholesterol, the highest levels of alpha and beta-carotene, beta-sitosterol, which protects against heart disease and cancer, twice the lutein of olive oil, which protects against macular degeneration and blindness, the highest levels of essential vitamins and minerals, and is loaded with the powerful antioxidant and free-radical absorber, vitamin E.

Quality: Olivado uses only the finest quality ripe avocados and never uses spoiled or imperfect fruit, which can affect the flavor and reduce shelf life. A process which was pioneered and developed by Olivado completely removes the skins and pit, whose toxins create bitterness and reduce product stability and limit shelf life.  Only Olivado can produce this quality of avocado oil.

High Heat Use:
Olivado Avocado Oil has the highest smoke point (491 degrees) of any other extra virgin, cold pressed oil, which makes it perfect for wok stir frying, sautéing, or any other cooking where high heat will cause other oils to break down and burn, releasing dangerous carcinogens, as well as ruining your dish.
Skin & Hair Care: Avocado oil is world renown for its healing, anti-bacterial and anti-wrinkle properties.
It penetrates the skin and hair more deeply than other oils, and its powerful sterolins, high levels of Vitamin E and micro-nutrients add elasticity, fight bacteria, fill in wrinkles & scars and make it the finest skin and hair care product on the planet.

A Rich History:
Olivado was created by a New Zealand professional chef who recognized the potential of turning the worlds healthiest fruit into a delicious, versatile edible oil, while preserving all its health benefits. Working closely with Massey University under a New Zealand government horticultural research grant, they have pioneered the process of oil extraction from the avocado. Incorporating the latest technologies, they have built the worlds first ultramodern packing and processing plants devoted to avocado oil production.

"Better still is the flavour and culinary uses of avocado oil. You can use Olivado's Avocado Oil as you would any other oil. You can enjoy its light taste as a salad dressing and use it for high-temperature cooking; its smoking point is a remarkable 491 degrees Fahrenheit, or 255 degrees Celsius. I especially like it for baking because it yields a buttery crumb."
