Avocado substitutes

The avocado is a tasty fruit with multiple health virtues, but lokaal offers you equally nutritious alternatives while being local and natural.

Why no avocado?

In addition to the evidence that the avocado tree does not grow on our territory, here are some reasons to find an alternative to avocado:

- To consume less water: you need 1000 Liters of water for 1 kg of avocados.

- To avoid pollution due to transport. The first avocado producing country is Mexico.

- To avoid taking part in the deforestation linked to the intensive cultivation of avocados.

- To avoid the use of pesticides.

Finally, as a victim of its success, its culture is now a source of enrichment for South American drug traffickers.

What should we replace avocado with?

The taste and texture of avocado are not easy to replace. However, from a nutritional point of view, there are very accessible possibilities. Rich in Vitamins C, E, K, B6 and many others, here are our equally nutritious alternatives:
