    I absolutely love avocado oil, and have had nothing but good experiences with La Tourangelle over the past 5 or 6 years. One of the biggest challenges when buying exotic oils, is figuring out what to use it for without feeling like you’re wasting it. As a general rule, I use avocado oil and a great quality extra virgin olive oil interchangeably.The color is a beautiful shade of green, the taste has the distinctive creamy and slightly grassy/slightly sweet taste of avocados. It’s great on salads, to dip bread into, or drizzled on soups or stews. I’ve also cooked with it when the flavor of avocado will pair nicely. I tend to use it in Latin American dishes, because I follow the rule of “if it grows together it goes together.” One thing that is different about avocado oil vs olive oil, is La Tourangelle recommends it is kept refrigerated after opening. The first time I purchased, I kept it in the cupboard with other oils and didn’t notice a significant different in flavors, nor did it appear to go rancid any faster than when I kept it in the fridge, but I may use it more than a typical home cook. Since it’s kept in the fridge, it will solidify making it impractical to just grab and add to what it is you’re cooking. So I usually take a 4 cup measuring cup and fill it 1/3 with warm water and put the can of oil right into it for a few minutes to liquify the oil, then use as normal. I’m not an expert in food or medicine, but there’s a general consensus among people far more qualified than me of health benefits associated with avocado oil. It is made up of monounsaturated fatty acids which reduce inflammation, assist in decreasing LDL, and assist in increasing HDL; it’s rich in antioxidants; and it contains compounds beneficial to fighting liver damage. The bottom line is, if you like avocados and are looking for an alternative oil to add to your cooking, this is a reasonable size container of avocado oil at a reasonable price.

    Definitely a five star product for anyone looking for a carrier oil or even to use alone. It’s a deep green color, which is so fascinating being that many oils high in omega-3 are stripped of its natural color. This avocado oil is non-greasy and absorbs AMAZING. I loved it so much! I wore a teeny bit under my makeup primer and I was complimented so much at work for the beauty of my skin. The exterior of the bottle was was dented in pretty badly; however, it didn’t puncture the interior at all.



    Start using mostly Avocado oil for cooking!!! It’s also great to have around the household for Sexy Time!!! Or to use as a skin moisturizer. Avocado oil is amazing for your skin, hair, beards etc. Avocado oil will make your hair shine like you can’t believe and it will keep the frizz away, Avocado oil will moisturize your skin without making it to oily. For massage!!! Don’t even get me started on how Amazing it is for massage!!!! Add some avocado oil to your favorite body or hand lotion!!!!! It’s So healthy, it tastes great and it has a much higher heat range than any other cooking oil. Thous keeping the toxicity level from the average cooking oil out of your food or at a much lower level or if any at all!!!!For Sexy time or to turn an average massage into Sexy time Avocado oil is magic. If you don’t feel like licking that thing, just put some avocado oil on it and BANG THE PROBLEM IS FIXED and sometimes it just takes a little more than licking.

    I must say that I am new to the world of oils but I have taken an interest in my skin around the age of 40 and I’m now 50 and have yet to find anything that has been effective for my skin. I’ve ordered Cindy Crawford along with Muted and other products but it just wasn’t right for my skin. I’m an African American and I have dry areas on my forehead cheeks and between my eyes and eyebrows as well. I got my oil aboutn2 weeks ago and after I bathe I put my oil in my hands and I rub them together first to warm the oil and then i pat on my face. I wait a minute and rub in circular motions even in the corners of my eyes carefully and on my forehead where it is really dry and around the 5th day I noticed a dramatic change in my skin. It begin to feel like a baby’s bottom….literally. It looks as if it’s been awaken from a deep slumber. And its not greasy at all. And it doesn’t take much at all. Futhering my research on oils since I’m new at this I ordered the Rose Hip Oil and Olive oil and I mixed them together and for about 3 days now its even better my skin. I recommend anyone with really dry and flaky skin to get this product. Its done amazing things for my skin. Even though my noise is so oily it doesn’t make it oilier in fact it minimizes the oil on my nose. I will definitely by again.

    This batch of avocado oil is VERY DARK, and I am used to light colored avocado oil. I contacted the manufacturer in CA, and they responded quickly and thoroughly, explaining that there is natural variation in color depending on several factors and that this run of the production simply appears dark with no impact on quality. I have been using it for a month or so and it tastes fine and cooks well. In the photo, the can I bought is on the left, avocado oil from that can is in my clear dispenser in the center, and — for comparison — some olive oil (from a different manufacturer) is in the clear dispenser on the right.

    I’ve been using this Avocado oil for 16 days now,this is the best oil I’ve ever used. It absorbs very quickly and doesn’t feel oily after about 5 minutes on my facial and body skin. Before this brand I was using another one it was decent but this one’s far better. This one is a bright green and the other brand was a dark yellow in bottle and clear outside it. This one is less oily feeling ,absorbs faster and more moisturizing for my somewhat dry 26 year old skin. With amazon prime it’s 3 dollars cheaper for better quality. I will most definitely keep using this amazing avocado oil for my moisturizer. I put up a picture comparing this brand on the left to the other on the right.

    Edit 4-11-17: Amazon discontined offering La Tourangelle Avocado oil via Subscribe and Save which is a shame. It is still available and pretty much the same price I was previously payinig. I wanted everyone to know that I just had a very nice exchange of e-mails with someone from La Tourangelle. I had questions about their manufacturing process which were all answered to my satisfaction. I also asked if any of their avocados come from fields watered with refined fracking water. I was told that they have reached out to all of their avocado suppliers and have been assured that none of them water fields with fracking water. I continue to believe that, for the money, this is the best avocado oil I can buy for the good health of my husband and I. I believe La Tourangelle strives to provide the best avocado oil available for the price and does their best to give excellent customer service.This is my first experience with Avocado Oil. I was expecting a stronger avocado taste but I was wrong. THIS is what I wanted. The taste is so smooth, rich, buttery, and mild. There’s no acidic bite at all. If I really concentrate when tasting it I can taste a hint of avocado. My husband says he really tastes the avocado and it’s great. I guess everyone’s taste buds are different. In any event we both love it. It’s wonderful for sauteing, especially if your using a little higher heat. I don’t agree with the people who suggest this is good for temps up to 500 degrees. I wouldn’t want to go higher than 375.I used it last night to saute’ assorted veggies and then scrambled them with eggs and broken up pieces of Morning Star Sausage. It was very good. I didn’t miss butter at all which is what I usually like to use with eggs. Olive oil and eggs just don’t do it for me. From what I’ve read, there are significant health benefits derived from avocado oil. I’m hooked. I’m keeping this on subscribe and save. It’s now olive oil and avocado oil for almost everything except baking. Oh..add Sesame oil to that list. Can’t make Chinese dumplings without that for the dipping sauce and it’s a must for fried rice. I buy Kadoya right here on Amazon. It’s the best sesame oil I’ve ever tried.Update: I’m on my 3rd can of Tourangelle Avocado Oil and I continue to love it. It’s become my go to oil for almost everything including messaging any drips of oil into my hands to moisturize. I freeze a lot of roasted pepper from my garden in the summer time. I take out a few peppers at a time and put them in oil to defrost and keep in the frig. I love it on Rosemary bread with Feta cheese. This oil is much tastier than using olive oil. When all the peppers are used up we soak up any left over oil with bread and eat it. It’s just wonderful tasting oil.

    Scientific studies have shown that the healthiest oils are rich in Polyunsaturated fats because they contain omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, which lower “bad” (low-density lipoproteins) cholesterol and increase “good” (high-density lipoproteins) cholesterol and Monounsaturated fats.Avocado oil is high in Monounsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E. It has a fat profile similar to olive oil, but it has a high smoke point, making it great for frying. It has the flavor and nice green color that’s characteristic of the flesh of the avocado.La Tourangelle’s Avocado oil is expeller-pressed and free of any chemicals, and 100% natural. It has a nice avocado flavor, a strong smell, and a bright green color. I use it mostly for salad dressings and vinaigrettes.I’ve also used it for frying northern red snapper and trout and it gave the fish a delicious and unique flavor.I’ve also used it as a moisturizer for my children’s skin and hair. I apply it to slightly damp skin and it penetrates and rapidly absorbs, leaving the skin soft and hydrated. I apply a few drops to the tips (ends) of damp hair and it leaves it soft, eliminating frizz, while adding shine and bounce.I store it in the refrigerator to keep it fresh and bring it to room temperature before using. Taste is highly subjective but I find avocado oil to be much more robust in flavor and general deliciousness than olive oil!I have tried other brands of Avocado oil and La Tourangelle’s was the most delicious and flavorful, similar to that of a crushed avocado! Grade A+

    La Tourangelle oils are some of the best oils we have used. Love the fact that they come in tin containers. We have a subscription for avocado oil and peanut oil. When we receive the order, we find each container wrapped in thick bubble sheet bag which is twice the size of the container. It is very disheartening to open the packaging. Not sure if this packaging is done by Amazon or by La Tourangelle, but it would be great if they use more eco-friendly packaging.
