A HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE

BALMORAL ORCHARD ENDORSES AND RECOMMENDS AUSSIE AVOS  FOR THEIR NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS AND A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE....

NUTRIENT DENSE = FOOD HIGH IN NUTRIENTS BUT RELATIVELY LOW IN CALORIES

Avocados are a great nutrient dense food. One-third of a medium avocado contains nearly 20 vitamins and minerals but only has 80 calories. Avocados contain such a treasure trove of nutrients that the Guinness Book of Records lists them as the most nutritious fruit in the world! In addition, avocados are included in the dietary programmes recommended by some of the world's leading nutrition organisations such as the American Diabetes Association and the US Department of Agriculture.

Avocados are kind to your heart:

 

GET THE FACTS ON FATS.........
  • Being rich in monounsaturated fats, avocados can reduce the level of  “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and protect against atherosclerosis, stroke and coronary heart disease.

 

 

Additional health benefits of avocados include:

  • Rich in multiple vitamins required by the body - C, E, K, B5 and B6
  • Bone health and osteoporosis prevention - vitamin K in avocados can increase calcium absorption and decrease urinary excretion of calcium helping prevent osteoporosis
  • Carotenoids – eyesight benefits
  • Anti-oxidants - protect against cancers and heart disease, and slow the ageing proces; also helps maintain eye health
  • Folate rich – excellent for kids and pregnant mums
  • Low sodium – helps blood pressure
  • High in fibre – protects against bowel cancer and reduces risk of heart attacks
  • Potassium - avocados contain more potassium than bananas; potassium helps maintain health blood pressure levels, thus reducing the risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney failure

As well as being a wonderful source of nutrients for growing bodies, kids just love the taste and flavour. Lucy and her baby sister Olivia enjoy a healthy Balmoral avocado for their afternoon snack - Yum Yum!
