Why We Love Cooking with Westfalia Avocado Oils
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. It is also a source of omega-3 fatty acids and it contains healthy, plant-based unsaturated oil components that provide an efficient source of energy. It is also naturally cholesterol-free and has earned the South African Heart Foundation’s mark of approval. The Heart Mark is a guideline and incentive for shoppers to identify healthy products on the shelf. These products are naturally lower in cholesterol, lower in saturated fat, lower in sodium, higher in fibre (where applicable) and lower in added sugar. The Heart Mark confirms two things: stringent nutritional standards; and independent testing by a reputable laboratory. Westfalia Avocado Oils are also certified Kosher (Parev) and Halaal.
We just LOVE these creative recipes which use Westfalia’s range of healthy avocado oils and highlight their beautiful flavours.
