The Benefits of Avocado Oil

June 06, 2024

Avocado oil is fast becoming a fan-favorite cooking oil and one of the trendiest essentials to have in the kitchen. As versatile as it is delicious, it’s a must-have for every kitchen, whether you’re a five-star chef or a home cook just starting to branch out. 

If you haven't added Primal Kitchen Pure Avocado Oil to the lineup of everyday cooking essentials in your pantry or on your kitchen countertop, now is the perfect time to discover why it's such a valuable addition. Let's take a look at the many benefits of this outstanding oil.

Neutral Flavor

One of the standout features of our pure avocado oil is its neutral flavor profile. No one wants a mouthful of oil with their burgers or veggies. Unlike stronger oils such as olive or coconut, avocado oil has a mild and buttery taste that won't overpower your meals. This allows the natural flavor of your main ingredients to shine through, making it an ideal choice for cooking meats and vegetables. No matter how you use it, you'll taste your food—not your cooking oil.

High Smoke Point

Avocado oil has a smoke point of about 500°F (260°C), which makes it ideal for high-heat cooking methods such as sautéing, frying, baking, roasting, and even air-frying. Oils with lower smoke points can break down at high temperatures, giving food a burnt flavor that literally leaves a bad taste in your mouth. With Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil, you can easily cook at high temperatures without compromising the quality or flavor of your food.

Useful for Everything

We love avocado oil because it can do anything. Substitute it for canola or vegetable oil in a wide range of recipes, from sauteing taco meat to cooking omelets, drizzling pasta, and mixing into skillet meals. Avocado oil can also serve as a non-dairy substitute for butter, adding extra moisture and softness to cakes. In most cases, avocado is a 1:1 replacement, so you won’t use up any more than you would with butter or other oils.

Processed With Care

Our premium avocado oil is centrifuge-extracted to give you the pure, high-quality oil you deserve. How does it work? Simply put, ingredients are spun in a centrifuge to separate our delicious oil from the rest of the avocado. 

Free From Major Allergens

Have a food allergy? You’re not alone. Our avocado oil is no-dairy and made without the ingredients the nonprofit Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) organization has identified as the Big Nine, or the most common allergens in the US. If you’re unfamiliar with the Big Nine, they are: milk, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, wheat, soy, and sesame. This makes avocado oil a fantastic substitute for nut, soybean, and sesame oils, as well as oil blends containing these major allergens.

No GMOs, Please!

At Primal Kitchen, we’re committed to using intentional ingredients with integrity. Our Pure Avocado Oil is Non-GMO Project Verified. Choosing non-GMO avocado oil ensures that you are consuming a product that is free from genetic modification—just the way we like it.

The Ultimate Kitchen Companion

Avocado oil is more than just a pretty new face (or rather, bottle) on your countertop. Whether you're flipping pancakes, roasting veggies, or crafting the perfect vinaigrette, avocado oil is there to help.

For those who prefer to eat organic ingredients, our Pure Organic Avocado Oil is made with organically grown Mexican avocados. It has all of the same benefits of our regular avocado oil—buttery taste, non-GMO, no Big Nine allergens—and is also USDA Organic certified.  

With a neutral flavor and high smoke point, avocado oil is an essential culinary staple that deserves a place of honor next to your olive oil and sea salt. It’s also free from allergens like soy and nuts, so everyone in your household can enjoy it. Once you experience the benefits of avocado oil, you'll reach for it again and again!
