Avocado pulp is a rich source of vitamin E and potassium

Avocado pulp is a rich source of vitamin E and potassium, which helps to regulate blood pressure, maintain a regular heartbeat and a healthy nervous system. Additionally, it contains interesting amounts of vitamin B6, C and magnesium. Avocado is rich especially in monounsaturated fats, which can lower cholesterol in the blood – this is why this fruit has become a part of the diet that is often recommended in the prevention of cardio vascular diseases virtually worldwide.

The culinary uses of avocados are wide: wash, cut and remove the stone. The pulp, due to the high contents of fat, has a butter-like consistency. We can eat the pulp as a main dish (very tasty if drizzled with lemon) or use it for the production or dressings, spreads, combined with vegetable or fruit salads. We recommend not eating unripe avodaco, as it has a bitter taste.
