Avocados come from avocado trees originating in South Central Mexico. The avocado tree, or Persea americana, is a type of flowering plant that belongs to the Lauraceae family. The avocado fruit is technically a large type of berry, which includes an equally-large seed. Although they’re native to Mexico, avocadoes are now grown in warm, temperate climates all over the world. There are several different types of avocado fruits, varying in colour, shape, and texture. Avocados range from very dark, almost black, to dark green and green in coloration. They can be perfectly round or more pear-shaped. Their skins can be smooth or even spiny, as is the case with the alligator pear, another name for a type of green, spiny avocado fruit.
Avocados are receiving a great deal of attention these days because of their nutritional content and health benefits. When considering avocado nutrients, avocados are high in dietary fiber, potassium, and vitamin C; they’re also an excellent source of healthy fats, contain vitamin A, calcium, and iron, and they’re low in sugar and cholesterol. While avocados are high in fat, and considered to be one of the fattiest fruits in the world, this fat is also considered to be extremely healthy. Noting that avocados are high in fat, but low in cholesterol may seem like a contradiction at first; however, avocado fat is special because it largely consists of oleic acid. Oleic acid is a monounsaturated fatty acid that is also found in olive oil, and it’s known to have several nourishing properties. Recent studies of oleic acid are showing that it can not only potentially lessen inflammation, but may be helpful in cancer prevention in those who are genetically susceptible. Avocado oils are also very heat-resistant, making them the perfect oils for cooking with. The high fiber content of avocados is also very beneficent because fiber can help facilitate the entire digestive process. Because fiber is basically indigestible vegetable material, it can help reduce high blood sugar levels and be a key contributor to weight loss. These are just a few of the many health benefits of avocados. If you wish to learn more, please be sure to do a little of your own research as well. As with any fruit or vegetable, it’s important to buy organic avocados in order to make use of their maximum nutritional value.
