Australian Avocados - Creamy Goodness with Various Health Benefits

If you love avocados like me, you will know that it's not easy finding good avocados and when you do, it isn't easy trying to find out when is the perfect ripeness to consume it either!

Taste Australia, the national brand representing the Australian horticulture industry to support and drive the demand of fresh produce through engagements in key export markets, recently launched a Tasty and Nutritious Avocado campaign at Jaya Grocer Starling Mall. There's a little guide on the best time to eat avocados too.
“When customers buy Australian Avocados, not only do they get ‘farm to table’ freshness, they are also buying into the country’s very high environmental, food safety and employment requirements. And because we’re so close, we can deliver the freshest products to Asia in 48 hours,” Austrade Trade Commissioner Caitlin Noble said.
“Many know of the buttery and tasty appeal of the avocado but not everyone is aware of its powerful health benefits,” certified nutritionist and health advocate, Alexandra Prabaharan said. “The unique combination of vitamins and minerals found in avocados can help keep your immune system strong, boost your energy, enhance brain power, increase bone strength, aid gut health, support healthy skin and, they can even put you in a better mood. Basically, avocados make everything better.”
Ms Prabaharan said avocados could also boost the nutrition of other healthy foods, with research showing that adding avocado to a salad can increase your ability to absorb key nutrients in other fresh vegetables such as lycopene from red tomatoes and beta carotene from orange carrots.
We were also treated to some easy avocado recipes. The Taste Australia Hass Avocados are in season now, from May till January so what better time to experiment a little in the kitchen?
The Avocado Smoothie really stood out with it's super yummy localised taste! The rich, creamy and thick Malaysian Avocado Smoothie was perfectly complemented with gula melaka. Must try, must try!
To see the Taste Australia campaign in action and try the flavoursome Avocados head down to participating retailers including Jaya Grocer, Village Grocer & AEON supermarkets.
