There's now a reduced-fat avocado

There's now a reduced-fat avocado”

Created by Spanish food company Isla Bonita, these diet avocados claim to ripen quicker, turn brown slower AND contain only 70% of the fat of a normal avocado.

The diet avocado has been introduced by the brand Isla Bonita, and is naturally grown.

The low-fat avocado will make its debut in late October at a Madrid trade fair.

Many are sceptical of the diet fruit, and wonder why it was necessary. It was discovered when 32 different varieties of avocados were analyzed in 6 different countries.

The new light avocado isn't available yet in the U.S. to taste for ourselves.

For those disappointed that Avocado Light is not yet slated to come stateside, we actually already have one of our own. Slimcado, an avocado produced in Florida, has already been around for years and it, too, promises a "light" taste.as well as half the fat and a third fewer calories than the traditional avocado.

"The monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids present in avocados help to promote a healthy blood lipid profile", says Maya Feller, R.D.N. While they contain 322 calories and 30 grams of fat and should definitely be eaten in moderation, they contain vitamins like B, C, and E, and minerals like potassium and folate. The avocado's always been touted as a superfood, its monounsaturated fats - the good kind - and other nutrients that may be helping to stave off things like heart disease.

Avocados' rich, creamy texture is caused by their high fat content - an average fruit has between 20-30g of fat.

"So now, avocado can also be drunk".
