As trusted health advisors, you can help set the record straight. Scientific research continues to investigate the effects of foods that contain predominantly unsaturated fats, like fresh avocados, nuts, olive oil and fish, on heart health, weight management, nutrient absorption and more. This growing body of evidence is helping us understand the role of dietary fats as part of a healthy diet.
Fresh avocados contribute 5 grams of monounsaturated fat and 1 gram of polyunsaturated fat per 50g serving (one-third medium avocado).
Creamy and delicious, avocados are perfect in dips or spreads, as a smoothie ingredient, or baking substitute.
