Nutritional Values of Avocado
Avocado is a tropical tree characterized by belonging to the genus of evergreen, originating from Central America.
It is a fruit whose cultivation takes place mainly in the tropical part of the world: Northern and Southern America and Africa, Australia, Asia, New Zealand, and the Mediterranean basin.
This tropical tree is characterized by dense foliage, with a rounded development and an erect stem: its effect is concerned.
It is a plant that can count on good longevity since it can reach a maximum height of 9-18 meters during the years.
The foliage of the tropical tree is characterized by having an oval shape, dark green in color, but also very shiny and smooth, with a waxy appearance.
The flowers of the avocado plant are characterized by developing in the first part of the spring season until the late summer season.
As opposed to the average fruit, Avocado has reduced water content and a high content of lipids. For this reason, together with olives and coconut, it is classified in the category of oily fruit.
Although its fat composition is mainly monounsaturated, its consumption must be moderated, the so-called good fats.
A large avocado (about 300 g) contains the same quantity of fats found in about six tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
If we focus on other macronutrients, Avocado has a modest content of proteins and, as it can be imagined by its not very sweet taste, of simple sugars.
Fiber intake is also relatively low. However, it can still contribute in a small part to the recommended daily intake of 25-30 g.
It is a valuable source of micronutrients, in particular fat-soluble vitamins. 100 g of Avocado meets about half of the vitamin E requirement for both sexes.
