GREETINGS TO ALL FROM ALANYA
Welcome to Avocado Bazaar
OUR STORY ABOUT AVOCADO
As members of a family with healthy eating awareness in Alanya, we started a journey to bring you Avocado, one of our healthy nourishments. Avocado, which has been grown in fertile lands of Alanya since 1950s, has never been so famous despite having been consumed in our own city.
Containing healthy fat, avocado is such a miracle for human being, especially for a healthy heart, that is why it would not be fair to keep this precious nourishment only within the borders of Alanya for consumption.
Avocado, which is evergreen and a subtropical fruit type, is grown in 5 continents in about 50 countries all over the world. The name avocado is derived from Spanish language (aquacate or ahuacate) and generally it is named as “American pear”. However, we - people of Alanya - call this fruit “Avgada”.
High amount of oil and energy in avocado makes most consumers worry for health reasons. There have been misinterpretations, such as it would raise your cholesterol, it would cause vascular occlusion and hence result in cardiac diseases, it would fatten up due to its high calorie.
The fat content of Avocado’s fruit flesh varies from type to type and according the harvesting period. Generally, the total fat content of fruit flesh ranges from 10% to 20%. 80-90% of the total fat content contains unsaturated fatty acids. About 90% of unsaturated fatty acids is composed of mono-unsaturated fatty acids. 95 % of mono-unsaturated fatty acids contains oleic fat acid. The fat content of avocado has similar characteristics with the olive oil.
