UPDATE 04/05/2011: After reading so many reviews about how good this product was I contacted La Tourangelle through their email system and told them about the situation and asked how this avocado oil was supposed to taste. I wasn't sure if it was supposed to taste the way it did or not. I didn't ask for replacements or anything because I know a lot of companies will not back their product if sold by Amazon. That is not the case with La Tourangelle. I was contacted by Diane through email about a week later asking for the batch numbers. I gave them and didn't hear anything back, until today. About an hour ago UPS delivered a box that contained two large cans of oil; one can of Avocado oil and one can of Hazelnut oil. I was so surprised because I didn't even remember giving them my address, but now recall it was required on their email submission form. At any rate La Tourangelle went above and beyond and they will be getting my business in the future, but only in a B&M store or through their website. That is the only place I can recommend anyone buy these products because Amazon will not take back food items.
As far as the oil, the new Avocado oil tastes like real Avocados with no rancid taste or smell and the Hazelnut is out of this world. I plan to try them all out now, from the La Tourangelle website. Companies that go above and beyond will always get my business because they actually care about their product. Thank you La Tourangelle!
What didn't make sense to me is that it stated med-high heat applications like stir fry, but not high heat like deep fry or searing. Whereas it also says on Amazon description that the smoke point is 520 degrees. That is the smoke point of high heat, refined Avocado oil. Here on the latourangell web site they have the correct smoke point for their product - https://latourangelle.com/index.php/avocado-oil.html stated -
which is 375 degrees for med high heat applications. This could even be characterized as dangerous advertising because if someone is heating over 375 degrees like for fried foods or popcorn, the oil can be separated into the carcinogenic counterparts without the person knowing about it.
This should be fixed by Amazon or if this oil is indeed a high heat version, then it should not say "for med heat".
It is especially good drizzled on fresh-baked bread or pizza. It is nice on a salad although if there are other strong flavors for it to compete with such as balsamic vinegar, onions, or cheese, consider using a less expensive oil with a more competitive flavor such as first-press olive oil and save this for when you can better appreciate its unique sensory qualities. There is a recipe on the label for a citrus dressing with equal parts of this oil and citrus juice with a little honey, salt, and pepper which complements the flavor of the oil rather than overpowers it as a dressing with vinegar does.
Avocado oil also has a medium-high smoke point, higher than that of olive oil, so it is safer to use for cooking on the stove top although there are less expensive oils just as suitable for this purpose.
Avocado oil is also an excellent oil for use on the skin and the scent is pleasant enough that I will dab a little on my elbows and knuckles when using it in the kitchen.
The oil is packaged in a can to protect it from light and the lid fits tightly, although I have found that it will drip from the spout and collect on top of the can. Twisting the can at the end of the pour (as with a bottle of wine) helps prevent this. It can be stored at a reasonable room temperature but it would be better off in the refrigerator in warm climates or instead of over the oven.Read more ›
