The avocado is thought to originate from Mexico of course. Avocados are now grown all over the world where the climate is right (mainly in the tropics and Mediterranean countries); but the most delicious avocados still come from Mexico, where they soak in the energy from the sun and absorb nutrients from the rich Mexican soil.
Because it is a source of good fats, with its creamy texture, and mild flavor, avocados are a very flexible ingredient that can be used in many different types of dishes. Fresh avocado doesn’t only taste great, it’s also a nutritional powerhouse. 

Avocados are called a superfood for good reason: they’re like the comic book heros of fruits! Avocados contribute unsaturated “good” fats, and good fats can help the body absorb fat-soluble nutrients Vitamins A, D, K, and E. Healthy avocados contain 6g of naturally good fat per serving – one-third of a medium avocado. Good fats help the body absorb fat-soluble nutrients without raising LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels when eaten as part of a healthy diet.

The average avocado weighs 150 grams (g) and contains 240 calories, or 80 calories per 50g serving. If you’re watching your weight and thinking about striking avocado out of your diet – don’t! The extra calories in an avocado are well worth the nutritional benefits.

  • The main reason that avocado calories are higher than other fruits is because they’re high in fat with about 90% of calorific energy coming from fat. Again, don’t panic! High fat doesn’t mean bad. You can see the full nutritional breakdown of avocados in the table below:
