pH Miracle® AvoPHat
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 cholesterol 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.
