About this Product
What makes avocados so special?
Avocados are quite unique when it comes to cooking oils.
Most plant oils are extracted from the seed of the plant, but avocado oil is extracted from the flesh of the avocado, which is densely packed with around 20 minerals and vitamins.
This allows all the taste and the nutrients to be retained during the process, resulting in a delicious, healthy cooking oil.
Our delicious Extra Virgin Avocado Oil is lovingly made in small, high-quality batches from the fresh, ripe flesh of New Zealand Hass avocados—remaining true to our founding principles of superior quality and sustainability.
The taste of an avocado is quite unique, which is probably why it’s so popular around the world.
A smooth, buttery taste means it can go with almost any dish, while studies have shown a myriad of health benefits, from helping with diabetes to lowering the risk of heart attacks.
When it comes to cooking with avocado oil, it is the ultimate cooking tool. Perfect for gentle heating in a frying pan as well as high heat of up to 255°C, it can also be drizzled over salads and vegetables.
Vegetables, fish, or meat, roasting, baking, or grilling, cooking oil, dressing, or marinades… avocado oil does it all!
Health benefits of avocado oil
An avocado contains more potassium than a banana, more protein than any other fruit, and half the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin K, and a third of Vitamin C.
Studies have shown avocado oil lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, mainly due to their high potassium content, and they are also great for your hair and skin.
Our pioneering cold-extraction process
From small beginnings in Northland, New Zealand’s warmest region, Olivado has grown to be one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-quality avocado oil.
This is in no small part thanks to our pioneering cold-pressed extraction method, which allows us to turn our delicious, ripe fruit into quality cooking oil and still retain all the healthy properties along the way.
This incredible method has now become industry standard for high-end cooking oils, and is now used throughout the world by other manufacturers.
Our cold-pressed extraction process is similar to the traditional method, however there is one key difference – the temperature.
We are very careful never to let the temperature of the process rise above 50 degrees celsius. By doing this, the oil produced will retain all the healthy properties of the avocado fruit.
Only by this process can avocado oil be truly called extra-virgin.
