Extra Virgin Avocado Oil
Made from the fresh New Zealand avocado fruit and cold-pressed to ensure it retains as much of the fruit’s original nutrients and vitamins as possible, our delicious extra virgin avocado oil is the jewel in our crown.
Avocados are quite unique when it comes to cooking oils. They’re one of the fattiest foods out there – but in a good way! Fats come in three main types; monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and saturated. The ratio of these fats determine whether an oil is healthy or harmful, and 70% of avocado oil is a monounsaturated, omega-9 fatty acid – the “good” kind of fat.
Avocados contain more protein than any other fruit, more potassium than a banana, and half the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin K. Studies have shown avocados come with a myriad of health benefits, from helping with diabetes to lowering the risk of heart attacks.
Extra Virgin Avocado Oil Lemon Zest
Our Extra Virgin Avocado with Lemon Zest is an exquisite culinary oil that embodies all the smooth and mild taste of ripe Hass avocado with the zest of fresh lemon. We press the fresh lemons at the same time as the avocado to produce this delicious taste.
It combines all the health benefits of our above Extra Virgin Avocado Oil with the added benefits of the natural antioxidants of fresh lemons.
Great for panfrying or baking, it’s especially good with fish, but is also great on lamb, chicken and veggies.
Perfect as a natural salad dressing, it’s also ideal for high heat cooking up to 255°C!
Extra Virgin Sesame Oil
Known as the Queen of Cooking Oils, sesame oil has been a staple of our diet for thousands of years. Incredibly popular in Asia, it has an unmistakably unique, delicious, nutty flavour, that brings recipes to life. Our oil is the untoasted sesame seed not the widely used toasted and refined sesame oil giving you the healthiest option.
Much like avocado oil, sesame oil has a wide range of health benefits. A great source of Vitamin E, it can help protect skin from environmental factors, such as UV rays, toxins, and pollutions. Sesame oil is also rich in lignans that cause the body to release more fat-burning liver enzymes, helping you to lose weight. Many studies have shown that it can affect cholesterol, absorbing it from the small intestine.
Extra Virgin Peanut Oil
With its smooth nutty flavour, multiple health benefits, and high smoking point, peanut oil is prized in Asian and Middle-Eastern dishes and recipes.
Packed with antioxidants, peanut oil can help fight off dangerous free radicals – molecules which float around the body that can attach to your cells, causing cancer. Peanuts oil contains resveratrol, a compound that can help lower blood pressure, reducing the risk of a heart attack.
Our extra virgin peanut oil is a light golden colour, with a mild peanut flavour, adding seasoning and style to any recipe.
Extra Virgin Sweet Almond Oil
Our Sweet Almond Oil is the ace up our sleeve when it comes to home cooking.
A light, golden oil with an almond flavour, it’s perfect for baking and desserts, as well as a base for dressings and marinades. Our cold-pressed oil preserves all the goodness of raw almonds, particularly the high Vitamin E content which is so important for skin care.
Raw almonds are an excellent source of vitamin E, fibre, and protein, and almonds in general are considered the most nutrient-packed of the tree nuts, containing as much calcium as milk!
Extra Virgin Macadamia Nut Oil
For any nut lovers out there, our Extra Virgin Macadamia Nut Oil brings a fresh, unique flavour to any recipe, as well as a range of amazing health benefits.
Our incredible oil contains one of the highest levels of monounsaturated fats amongst all food oils, and at 84%, is even higher than Olive Oil. And just like our peanut oil, our macadamia oil is also very high in natural antioxidants, helping to fight off those pesky free radicals.
Macadamia nuts are packed with vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants, which help with everything from eyesight to bowel disease, and by using our pioneering cold-pressed extraction method, we retain all the natural goodness of the nut, keeping all the health benefits mother nature intended.
They’re called essentials for a reason
These 6 cooking oils cover all the bases when it comes to Olivado’s unique taste.
Our original Extra Virgin Avocado Oil makes every meal special, but some recipes call for a little something extra, and that’s where our avocado oil with lemon zest comes in.
Sesame oil has also been used by many cultures throughout the ages for its high Vitamin E content, which helps keep hair healthy, fights skin conditions, and helps to keep joints flexible.
Our peanut, sweet almond, and macadamia nut oils round off the essentials pack, with three very different flavour options, adding a special character and taste to many individual dishes.
The Essentials Mixed Pack is perfect if you want to cover all bases as a budding chef!
