Avocado is both a fruit and a vegetable. It tastes similar to hazelnut or walnut and has a deliciously creamy consistency. You'll love it!
Avocado is a very ancient fruit that was consumed by pre-Columbian civilizations long before the arrival of the Spanish in America. We know that the Mayas, Incas and Olmecs already included it in their diet.
It is an important source of calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and a multitude of vitamins. It is also rich in healthy fats, which is why it has the extraordinary property of helping to eliminate "bad" cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular disease, so common in today's sedentary world.
