Avocado Oil (Refined)

INGREDIENT SPECIFICATION: Avocado Oil, Refined
CERTIFICATE OF ANALYSIS: Each shipment to include certificate.
DESCRIPTION: The fatty Avocado Oil is obtained by pure mechanical pressing from the fruit pulp of the ripe avocado pear (Persea Americana, resp. Persea Gratissima).The pressed oil is of green to reddish-brown color. The subsequent refining considerably reduces the free fatty acids, and a light yellow, practically odorless oil is obtained.The cold filtration (winterization) can improve the cold stability (turbity) at certain temperatures.  Our main source is from Spain.
