It Was Only a Matter of Time Before Someone Created Diet Avocados

It Was Only a Matter of Time Before Someone Created Diet Avocados

"The monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids present in avocados help to promote a healthy blood lipid profile", says Maya Feller, R.D.N. According to Isla Bonita, the avocado is "naturally grown" and has a milder flavor.

In order to find the "light" avocados, Isla Bonita analyzed 32 varieties of the fruit in six different countries. Isla Bonita also claims their avocado "oxidizes more slowly", making it longer-lasting (i.e. less likely to turn that gross grayish brown) than the real deal. It will be launching officially this month, and does not yet have plans for transfer to the US.

According to California Avocados, the typical avocado fruit has about 80 calories and 8 grams of fat in one a serving, which his one-third of an entire fruit.

A large avocado contains about 330 calories, just under one fifth of the daily recommended intake for an average woman.

Someone's created diet avocados
You can now buy DIET avocados that contain a third less fat (and they ripen faster and turn brown SLOWER than the normal type)

But in moderation, normal avocados are extremely healthy, asthe fat they contain are "good" fats that help improve heart health and lower levels of "bad" cholesterol. Joy Bauer, the Nourish Snacks founder, and nutrition expert, said that he's sceptical about "fussing with something that's not broken".

The new light avocado isn't available yet in the USA to taste for ourselves.

Taub-Dix has also said that she thinks "too many people are fat phobic", to the point that many replace high-fat foods in their diet with unhealthy sugars, thinking it must be better.
