Plant Based Fats
Plant-based eating has become undeniably prevalent in recent years. People are eliminating animal products from their diet resulting in a rise in healthy and satiating plant-based substitutes like avocado oil. Diets that focus on healthy, plant-based foods and plant-based fats include the Mediterranean diet, the Vegan diet, the Keto diet, and the Paleo diet.
A significant trend for plant-based substitutes is plant-based fats. Plant-based fats such as avocado oil have become staple ingredients and must-have products on grocery store shelves. Refined avocado oil’s neutral taste and texture makes it a perfect dairy substitute for a plant-based diet with the additional nutritional benefits of the avocado itself. Extra virgin avocado oil has a richer flavor making it an excellent option for a more robust flavor profile in cooking.
Here are a few of our favorite avocado oil plant-based products:
1. Avocado Butter
Refined avocado oil is known for its buttery, mild flavor and clear color. Refined avocado oil-based butters are on the rise as plant-based consumers seek out healthy alternatives for baking and cooking.
Vegan Mayonnaise made with refined or extra virgin avocado oil is packed with healthy plant-based fats. Use this in your favorite sandwiches, dips, and dressings for a delicious and satiating meal!
3. No Dairy Ranch Dressing
Ranch dressing is a universal favorite for salads and dips of all kinds. A rise in the plant-based trend has introduced a non-dairy ranch dressing made with hearty avocado oil – a popular, equally delicious alternative to classic ranch dressing.
