Avocados

Avocados provide a substantial amount of monounsaturated fatty acids

Avocados are a source of vitamins C, E, K, and B6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium.

Avocados contain lutein and zeaxanthin, two phytochemicals present in eye tissue.

Avocados are high in fiber, containing approximately 6–7 g per half fruit.

Eating foods with natural fiber can help prevent constipation, maintain digestive tract health, and lower the risk of colon cancer.

Hass Avocado

In Peru, the Hass avocado is mainly grown in the regions of La Libertad, Lambayeque, Ancash, Cusco, Apurimac and Huancavelica. “It is a crop that can be easily managed by small farmers, as is mainly the case in the mountains, or by medium or large companies, as is mainly the case on the coast,”
