Avocado is bursting with useful fats that can both prevent wrinkles and improve brain capacity. So eat avocado and moan about your beauty and health.
Avocado is a real super fruit with lots of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and antioxidants.
The beneficial cats consist primarily of monounsaturated fats that are capable of lowering the poor cholesterol and improving it. Omega 3 fatty acids help prevent wrinkles, improve brain capacity and relieve pain as in arthritis. Avocado also contains oleic acid, a building block for Omega 9, which is good for the skin and seems anti-inflammatory.
Avocado also contains a lot of vitamin E that helps keep your skin soft, smooth and healthy while giving your hair extra shine. The potassium content is also high which helps regulate blood pressure and is good for the muscles. There are also plenty of fiber, folic acid and vitamin C, A and B, as well as magnesium.
Avocado is originally from Central and South America, but is grown today in the United States, Israel, Chile, Mexico, Brazil and the Dominican Republic. Avocado is the fruit of a winter green tree, Persea americana, which can be 65 meters high but usually around 25 meters. A tree produces about 180 fruits per year.
Handling and storage
Avocado’s life expectancy is considered to be 30 days and therefore it is best to shop home only when using them. If you find avocado with a thin little throat, please buy them. They have matured on the trees and have a richer taste than those with a rounded throat picked up a long time ago.
Omega avocado should mature at room temperature. On the other hand, you can store the avocado in the fridge.
If you want to make your avocado mature faster for your avocado toast then let it lie in a paper bag together with an apple. The apple delivers ethylene gas, a maturation hormone that accelerates maturation.
To try if avocado is ripe then you can put the fruit in your hand. Then gently press the thumb at the bracket and feel if the fruit yields. Then it’s mature.
Then you use avocado
The absolute easiest way to use avocado is to slice some pieces and eat to the food. You can also mash avocado and use on bread instead of margarine or butter and thus the avocado toast.
A simple avocado or guacamole is done by mashing avocado and mixing with chopped garlic and spice with ginger, cumin, black pepper and peppers. A little lemon may also fit well.
When avocado came to Sweden in the 70’s, we began to eat halved avocado with shrimp for starters. It is a nutritious and good combination that is still popular and easy to prepare.
Avocado discolorises, oxidizes, when it is cut and exposed to acid. To prevent it, you can either drizzle some lemon or vinegar for your avocado toast or if you made guacamole – let the avocado kernel remain in the tube so that it will keep the color better.

Or eat as it is, for example, some Turkish yogurt.
- Control Maturation Process
Sometimes it is difficult to find an avocado that is ready to be eaten directly, and then some planning is required. Buy multiple at a time and make sure they mature in a round. To speed up the maturation process, put one or two in a brown paper bag together with an apple or banana. Should you have cut off an avocado that is not edible, pour lemon on the meat and plastin so that it does not turn brown. Instead of grabbing the avocado, scale it. It is the meat closest to the shell that is most nutritious.
