Someone Created 'Diet' Avocados-Here's What That Even Means

A Spanish food company has just created 'diet' avocados and we are intrigued

Someone's created diet avocados

But the manmade strain, parsed together from other avocado breed traits, will likely remain a curiosity for folks across the pond; Isla Bonita only plans to distribute these Diet Avocados in Spain for now.

Eurobanan's Isla Bonita brand, a Spanish fruit company, has now invented a new product that they are calling what they are an "Avocado Light" - a diet version of a traditional avocado that has 30 percent less fat than variety you'd typically find in a grocery store. Its official launch is later this month at a trade show in Madrid, but unfortunately for Americans already chomping at the bit, it won't be in the produce section at their Trader Joe's.

For now, you're better off letting the Spaniards keep their diet avocado and simply keeping your avocado servings in check. According to many nutritionists, avocados have a special kind of fat that is essential to a healthy and balanced diet.

A large avocado has roughly 330 calories, which is slightly under a fifth of the daily recommended intake for women. 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.


Many are sceptical of the diet fruit, and wonder why it was necessary.

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

Avocados are proven to be quite the superfood too, providing nutritious heart-healthy fats, about half your day's fiber, folate, vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium.
