Organic Haas Avocado (1 ea.)

HOW DO I OPEN AN AVOCADO?

Cut the avocado in half lengthwise until reaching the center stone. Twist the two halves in opposite directions to separate. Remove the pit with a spoon or pierce the pit with a sharp knife and carefully pull the pit out. Then, either scoop out the avocado fruit or carefully peel away skin.
Ripen avocados at room temperature but refrigerate when ripe. Once ripe, use promptly for optimum flavor and texture. 

Health benefits of avocado

  • Avocados are high in mono-unsaturated fats and calories. However, they are very rich in dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals and packed with numerous health benefiting plant nutrients.

  • Its creamy pulp is an excellent source of mono-unsaturated fatty acids as well as omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid, linoleic acid. Research studies suggest that the Mediterranean diet which is rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids help lower LDL or bad cholesterol and increase HDL or good cholesterol, and thereby, help prevent coronary artery disease as well as stroke risk through favoring healthy blood lipid profile.

  • They are an excellent source of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. 100 grams of fruit provides 6.7 g or about 18% of recommended daily intake of fiber. Dietary fiber helps lower blood cholesterol levels and prevent constipation.

  •  Avocados contain high concentrations of tannin which has beneficial anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer, and antioxidant properties.

    The creamy flesh holds many health promoting flavonoid polyphenolic antioxidants such as cryptoxanthin, lutein, zea-xanthin, beta and alpha carotenes, albeit in small amounts. Together, these compounds work as protective scavengers against oxygen-derived free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) that play a role in aging and various disease processes.

  • They are also good in many health-benefiting vitamins. Vitamins A, E, and K primarily concentrated in its creamy pulp.

  • Avocados are also excellent sources of minerals like iron, copper, magnesium, and manganese. Magnesium is essential for bone strengthening and has a cardiac-protective role as well. Manganese used by the human body as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Iron and copper required for the production of red blood cells.

  • Fresh avocado is a very rich source of potassium. 100 g of fruit provides 485 mg or about 10% of required daily levels. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids where it helps regulate heart rate and blood pressure, countering harmful effects of sodium.
