But avocado contain a lot of fat? Yes, avocado fat is one of the healthiest fats because it contains a lot (approx. 23%) of monounsaturated fatty acids. Unsaturated fatty acid is oleic acid found in olive oil, nuts and avocados. The body needs these fats for the metabolism and the elasticity of its cell membranes. We can only use the important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K and carotene with their help. The fat protects internal organs, protects against cold and provides important energy reserves for times of need. Oleic acid also lowers cholesterol levels.
Avocado have even more to offer: The delicious fruits contain large amounts of vitamins, such as vitamin B (B1 and B29), vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, biotin, lutein, lycopene, zeaxanthin.

For whom avocados are not suitable: Diabetics should discuss the use of avocado with their doctor, as they can increase blood sugar levels.
