Hass Avocado Oil

July 18, 2016 in Category: What's New

From the world’s most avocado-rich region—Michoacán, Mexico—we’ve recently introduced Trader Joe’s Avocado Oil. Michoacán’s tropical climate, rich volcanic soil, and ample rainfall make it an ideal area for avocado cultivation.

The differing elevations on the (inactive) volcanic slopes result in multiple microclimates. So, depending on location, trees bloom at different times during the year—which means there are always fresh avocados to be had! Avocados are also plentiful because individual trees actually bloom and produce fruit twice each year. An abundant avocado crop not only means plenty of avocados for eating, but it also equates to plenty left over for making Trader Joe’s Avocado Oil.

Avocado Oil is high in monounsaturated fats and an excellent cooking oil, with a smoke point of 520 degrees Fahrenheit (significantly higher than olive oil, which has a smoke point closer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit). The clean, delicate flavor is a great match for all kinds of uses, from sautéing to baking to searing to garnishing.

Trader Joe’s Avocado Oil is an excellent addition to your pantry, and a good alternative to olive or other vegetable oils. We’re selling each 16.9 fluid ounce bottle for $8.99, an excellent price for this versatile, light-tasting oil.
