Plant Based Fats

Plant-based diets continue to gain popularity as more people begin to recognize the benefits of plant-based eating. An abundance of unique and delicious plant-based alternatives are popping up on grocery store shelves, restaurants, and cookbooks — showing the world that incorporating more plant-based food into their diets is quicker and easier than ever.

Plant-based fats are a staple for any diet because of their nutritional benefits (improved heart health, improved LDL cholesterol, and weight loss). Healthy plant derived fats are generally polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. Some common examples of these fats include extra virgin avocado oil, refined avocado oil, extra virgin olive oil, nuts, and seeds.

Here are a few of our favorite plant-based products containing avocado oil:

1. Avocado Butter

Refined avocado oil is known for its mild, buttery flavor and high smoke point of 500F. Plant-based butters containing avocado oil are on the rise as people continue to seek out healthier, plant-based alternatives for butter when baking and cooking at higher temperatures.

2. Vegan Mayo

Some popular ingredients in vegan mayonnaise are refined and extra virgin avocado oil because they are packed with healthy omega fatty acids. Spread vegan mayo on your favorite sandwiches or mix it into dips and dressings for a deliciously healthy boost to your meal.

3. Non-Dairy Ranch Dressing

Ranch dressing is a favorite for salads and dips of all kinds. Luckily for plant lovers, non-dairy ranch dressings have made their way to grocery stores and they’re here to stay! Avocado oil is often included in these plant-based dressings because of its buttery and smooth characteristics.
