About this Product
What makes the avocado fruit so unique?
Avocados are special 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 minerals and vitamins.
This allows all the taste and the nutrients to be retained throughout the process, resulting in a healthy, tantalising 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 extraordinary, which is probably why it’s so popular across the globe.
A smooth, buttery taste means it can go with almost any recipe, while studies have shown a multitude of health benefits, from helping fight diabetes to lowering blood pressure.
When it comes to cooking, avocado oil is the ultimate chef’s tool. Ideal for gentle heating in a frying pan as well as roasting, it can even 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 protein than any other fruit, more potassium than a banana, and half the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin K.
Studies have shown avocado oil reduces the risk of heart attack, and on top of everything else, they are also great for your hair and skin!
Our world-famous cold-extraction process
From small beginnings in a tiny New Zealand town, Olivado has grown to be one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-quality cooking oils.
This is in no small part thanks to our incredible cold-pressed extraction method, which allows us to turn our enticing, ripe fruit into quality cooking oil, and still retain all its health properties by the end.
This pioneering method has now become industry standard for high-end cooking oils, and is now used throughout the world by other manufacturers.
The process is similar to the traditional method, but with one key difference; temperature.
We are very careful never to let the temperature of the process rise above 50 degrees celsius. This ensures the avocado oil produced will retain all the nutrients and minerals of the avocado fruit.
Only by this cold-extraction process can avocado oil be truly called extra-virgin.
