We don't need diet avocados but they exist anyway

We don't need diet avocados but they exist anyway

"The monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids present in avocados help to promote a healthy blood lipid profile", says Maya Feller, R.D.N.

Avocados are becoming increasingly popular everywhere, that it's only expected someone actually created a low-calorie version of it.

Just when you thought we had seen the last of avocados, a Spanish company has announced a low-fat version of the fruit. But Ramón Rey, director of the global and Marketing area of Isla Bonita, describes it as having "a mild flavor and a juicier and lighter pulp that makes it ideal for the preparation of smoothies, cold soup, gazpachos [and] cocktails".

The avocados are grown under special soil and climate conditions to provide the same nutritional benefits with less fat, according to the company's website.

The company also claims light avocados has a slower oxidation rate, get ripe faster and are available all year round.


Many are sceptical of the diet fruit, and wonder why it was necessary.

Intrigued? To be fair, avocado fat is generally considered good for you already, particularly in regards to heart health. Joy Bauer, the Nourish Snacks founder, and nutrition expert, said that he's sceptical about "fussing with something that's not broken".

So, surely this means there's no need to reduce the fat content?

Taub-Dix has also said that she thinks "too many people are fat phobic", to the point that many replace high-fat foods in their diet with unhealthy sugars, thinking it must be better.
