This past weekend I put together an oil tasting dinner. We had 3 different oils from Olivado. We tried them with bread, on a salad, in cooking beans and to deep fry fritters on another occasion. Avocados in general are not a favorite of mine, (I know, vegan blasphemy) so eating oil made of avocados made me feel a little apprehensive. The omega plus oil and macadamia oils were my favorite. They had mild flavors and went well with everything. The virgin avocado oil went over well with my family, but the avocado flavor was too strong for me. Olivado also offers virgin coconut oil. I fried fritters with it and it worked very well. It melted quickly and easily without burning, and didn’t leave an aftertaste. You can find them at the usual locations, Publix, Whole Foods, etc. and prices are comparable to other brands of olive oil. I still think that plain extra virgin olive oil is the choice for me when cooking and on salads, but if you’re looking for something different to add to your salads or cook your vegetables in, then these are worth a try.
About Olivado Oils:
Olivado’s Cold Pressed Extra Virgin oils retain all of their natural goodness and taste with minimal processing. Grown in New Zealand, or sourced from the best international ingredients, the Extra Virgin range provides oils of exceptional quality and nutritional value.
Olivado’s philosophy is Natural Nutrition: that a balanced everyday diet combining a variety of foods should give a person all the nutrition they need.
Current research suggests that many food supplements are not an effective way of obtaining nutrients; that Nature’s bundle of nutrients in vegetables and fruits works best, rather than extracting what we think is the important ingredient and taking this in a tablet.
For example, a 10ml (2 tsp) serving of Olivado’s extra virgin cold pressed avocado oil provides 20% of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin E.
Extra virgin avocado oil has been proven to be one of the healthiest and most versatile of culinary oils.
The rich smooth taste enhances the flavours of delicate foods, and its high burn point makes it the best choice for healthy pan frying and high heat cooking. And of course it’s perfect with salads, vegetables, in smoothies, even baking. Add to that an extraordinary list of health benefits, including high levels of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, Vitamin E, Omegas 6 and 9, lutein, alpha and beta carotene, and many more.
