The Versatility of Westfalia Avocado Oil
The popularity of avocado oil has grown substantially over the past few years. Westfalia’s delicious range of avocado oils are healthy, versatile and a perfect substitute for any other cooking oil. It is suitable to use for a range of cooking methods and other uses, from frying, roasting and braaing to drizzling, dipping and even baking. Westfalia’s Plain Avocado Oil has a wonderful neutral flavour, without the taste of a fresh avo as many may think.
Avocado oil contains monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid (oleic acid ) which is known to have several positive effects to overall health such as lowering blood pressure, protecting cells from free radicals and improving brain function.
Another benefit is the high smoke-point of the oil – up to 250 ˚C. This means that the health structure of the oil remains intact, even when heated. With the stamp of approval from the Heart and Stroke Foundation of South Africa, you can be sure that it is one of the healthiest oils on the market. Westfalia avocado oils are certified Halaal and Kosher, suitable for vegetarians, and available in a variety of flavours. The flavours in the range include Plain, Garlic, Lemon, Chilli, Basil, Herb and Butter. This month we cook with the garlic, butter, lemon and plain flavoured oils and create some utterly delicious sweet and savoury recipes.
