This Avocado Oil is 100% extra virgin oil extracted from New Zealand Avocados by cold pressing. It has a higher smoke point than extra virgin olive oil, so food can be cooked on high heat without burning the oil. Use avocado oil for cooking meats, fish or chicken, dressing salads and vegetables or just simply dipping bread. The smooth rich taste of New Zealand Olive Oil is a great complement to any meal. Certified Organic.
