GOURMET, EXTRA VIRGIN, COLD PRESSED, AVOCADO LIME OIL
Among the beneficial oils, olive and avocado oils are touted as two of the healthiest. Olive and avocado oil contain monounsaturated fat, which can lower total cholesteol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the blood by lowering acidity. This is a good thing.
Choosing olive or avocado oil is a bit like choosing a good wine. There are different grades, and some are more flavorful and offer more health benefits.
Virgin, extra-virgin or refined: Virgin and extra-virgin olive and avocado oils tend to be higher in polyphenols (a powerful antioxidant) than are the more-processed, refined olive or avocado oils. Antioxidants are considered beneficial because they help the body rid itself of acidic molecules or dietary and metabolic acids and minimize harmful cellular acidic inflammation.
A recent study comparing virgin oil, refined oil, and the combination of both found that virgin oil appears to have greater heart-health benefits.
Here are some things to consider when purchasing olive and/or avocado oils:
Freshness: The fresher the oil, the greater the antioxidant properties. Quality olive or avocado oils generally include a packaging date. At purchase, it should be no more than one year old.
Price/flavor: Olive and avocado oils run the gamut in prices. Shoppers should invest in the pricier and more flavorful green virgin or extra-virgin oils for use in salad dressing or drizzling over salads or side dishes.
Storage: Green Olive and avocado oils have a shelf life of about six to twelve months. Storage in a cool dark place is best.
