Agroponiente Avocado

Vegetable butter that fights cholesterol

At Agroponiente, we are always close to the great ally against cholesterol: the avocado. That is why we supply it 52 weeks a year, both in Spain and abroad. In addition, we cultivate it in a traditional way, thus offering maximum guarantees.

Thanks to its high oleic acid content, avocado helps increase good cholesterol and reduce the bad. And not only that but this fruit contributes to reducing inflammation. For that alone, it is worth substituting butter for this vegetable gem.

The Hass variety, also known as ‘the crocodile pear’, is the most convenient to eat: it’s easy to peel when the avocado is ripe. So now that you know this, go ahead and cut it in half, remove the bone with a spoon and taste it.

What is avocado good for, or how to choose the one that is just right?

Avocado: high in minerals. It contains magnesium and potassium, which contributes to the proper functioning of the nervous and muscular system. This prevents the risk of suffering a stroke and also strengthens the immune system. The truth is, there are plenty of recipes for you to follow and introduce avocado into your daily life.

Avocado, an ally against constipation. Whether you have it with toast or mix it in a salad, you will avoid fluid retention. Here’s another secret: this natural treasure satisfies the appetite.

High in vitamin E.
An antioxidant that contributes to reducing the risk of multiple diseases, including cardiovascular and degenerative diseases. Together with some B vitamins, avocado also boosts fertility.

The trick to choosing a ripe avocado: peel back the cap at the top of the avocado. It’s that simple. If it comes away easily and you find yellow underneath, you’ve got a good avocado that’s ripe and ready to eat. Another way to check is to shake it gently. If the bone moves a bit, you can eat it. If you’re not going to eat it all, you can avoid its oxidation very easily: add some lemon juice, white or lime vinegar.
