Avocados are smooth, creamy, and filling fruits used in many kitchens worldwide because of their high nutrients and antioxidants, such as fiber, magnesium, potassium, iron, vitamin A, C, E, K, and B.


Avocados are high in fibre, providing about 14 grams in each avocado. That’s nearly half of the current DV for this important nutrient

Research shows that following a dietary pattern rich in fibrous foods, like fruits and vegetables, may help support weight loss. Plus, people who eat more fiber tend to maintain healthier body weights compared to those who follow lower fibee diets.
