Advertorial: Oil you need to know

Healthy and versatile, Westfalia Avocado Oil products are worldwide leaders in the taste stakes

Avocados are packed with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, which make them ideal for oil production. To extract the oil, the skin and pip are removed and the flesh is spun in a centrifuge to separate the oil, water and solids. Westfalia Avocado Oil is perfect for culinary use.


Westfalia Organic Avocado Oil Extracted from avocados grown free of synthetic pesticides and fertilisers, this is certified by the USDA’s National Organic Program and BCS Oko-garantie GmbH – both recognised for the SA market.


Westfalia Avocado Oil chilli-flavoured infusion Mild enough for most dishes, this oil still has a nice bite. Try it in stir-fries, curries and marinades – and chocolate-chilli desserts!


Westfalia Avocado Oil herb-flavoured infusion Flavoured with a selection of Mediterranean herbs, it’s great with meat, as a rub or drizzled over couscous, salads or veg.


Westfalia Avocado Oil lemon-flavoured infusion Naturally infused with lemon, this oil is ideal for seafood, salads, marinades and lemony bakes.

Westfalia Plain Avocado Oil A great substitute for sunflower, olive or canola oil, use it for sauces, dressings and dips and for baking, roasting and frying.


Westfalia Avocado Oil basil-flavoured infusion Like summer in a bottle, drizzle it liberally over salads, chilled soups or fresh strawberries.

Or make pesto with it.


Westfalia Avocado Oil garlic-flavoured infusion Use garlic-infused oil for roasting potatoes and vegetables, or as a healthy alternative to garlic butter.



Mild in flavour, avocado oil is a healthier cooking option. When some oils are heated to high temperatures, the good fats can be transformed into harmful trans fats. But because of avocado oil’s high smoke point (250oC, which is higher than most cooking oils), it’s safe to use for frying.



Like any natural product, avocado oil can be damaged by exposure to oxygen and bright light which destroys nutrients and can affect the flavour. Keep in a cool, dark place like a cupboard (not the fridge), out of direct sunlight.


Fact: Westfalia Avocado Oils are endorsed by the Heart Foundation and are certified Halaal and Kosher.
