7 Facts About Avocado Oil

7 reasons why west~bourne’s chef-developed 100% Pure Avocado Oil is 100% better than the oil you’re using now.

1. Highest smoke point of any cooking oil 

west~bourne’s avocado oil’s smoke point exceeds 500º F making it the ideal choice for frying and searing, as it remains stable and doesn't break down or produce harmful compounds. The high smoke point preserves the oil's nutritional properties, and imparts a mild, buttery flavor to dishes, enhancing their overall taste.

2. Neutral flavor to swing sweet or savory

Similar to vegetable oil (in only this way), west~bourne’s avocado oil has a mild taste allowing it to seamlessly blend into any recipe without overpowering other ingredients.

3. A 1:1 substitute for butter (yes, it’s true) 

It has a similar consistency and neutral flavor to mimic the creamy richness of butter, making it an easy swap for baking, sautéing, or even spreading on toast. Additionally, avocado oil's heart-healthy fats provide a nutrient boost, making it the perfect choice for those looking to reduce saturated fat intake without compromising on taste or texture.

4. 89% of avocado oils were found to be fake, this is 100% pure

west~bourne’s avocado oil is derived completely from Mexican-grown ripe avocados. Their farms use regenerative methods that yield more nutrient-rich, delicious, and environmentally sound food than traditional growers. Unlike the alarming 89% of avocado oils that are diluted with cheaper oils, west~bourne is 100% pure.

5. Avocados are the #1 superfood 

If you were trapped on a desert island and could only eat one thing, you’d want it to be avocados. They’re packed with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, avocados not only promote good cardiovascular health but also support overall well-being.

6. Helps you absorb other nutrients better 

Because avocado oil is rich in monounsaturated fats, it enhances the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients like vitamins A, D, E, and K. The healthy fats act as carriers, helping transport these essential vitamins into your bloodstream more effectively.

7. Chef founded and formulated

west~bourne started as a zero-waste, mission-driven restaurant in SoHo, New York before coming the best-selling provisions brand it is today. Founded by Camilla Marcus, award-winning chef, it brings culinary delights to your table to make cooking and hosting more enjoyable.
