MONTREAL, March 15, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ – Canadians love avocados! In fact, avocados are so popular not only at parties and festivities, but also as part of everyday life, that people across the country enjoy on average more than 99 million kilograms of avocados per year lately. As March is synonymous with nutrition month, it’s then the perfect timing to turn the spotlight on the health benefits of this amazing fruit.

Avocados from Mexico are widely available on grocery store shelves in Canada, with nearly 95% of the market share, and they are considered a ‘superfruit’ due to their abundant nutrient content.

This year’s theme—Ingredients for a Healthier Tomorrow—is especially fitting. As such, Avocados From Mexico checks all the boxes and then some. It’s delicious, versatile, and healthy. Indeed, it’s also an excellent substitute for many ingredients in vegetarians and vegans’ recipes and it’s perfectly in line with the rising trend of people looking to adopt healthier lifestyles. Luckily, these good habits seem likely to last. As a result, people are more likely to cook and be creative with their food. They want more nutritional choices and especially more diversity and fun in their plates. A perfect task for Avocados From Mexico.

Case in point: let’s not forget that avocados from Mexico are known for being a source of “good fat”, monounsaturated fat, which helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels. They are also high in fibre and packed with other nutrients, such as magnesium, potassium, folic acid, vitamin C, and vitamin E. To top it all: healthy avocados are sugar free!
