"Diet Avocados" Have Just Been Discovered

According to Isla Bonita, the avocado is "naturally grown" and has a milder flavor.

Just when you thought we had seen the last of avocados, a Spanish company has announced a low-fat version of the fruit. Isla Bonita also claims their avocado "oxidizes more slowly", making it longer-lasting (i.e. less likely to turn that gross grayish brown) than the real deal. Note: This does not mean that regular avocados are unhealthy. It will be launching officially this month, and does not yet have plans for transfer to the US.

For now, you're better off letting the Spaniards keep their diet avocado and simply keeping your avocado servings in check.

Hmm, since avocados are a fruit and fruit is healthy. we are not really sure why their is a need for a diet version?

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

Intrigued? To be fair, avocado fat is generally considered good for you already, particularly in regards to heart health. Joy Bauer, the Nourish Snacks founder, and nutrition expert, said that he's sceptical about "fussing with something that's not broken".

The Avocado Light will be available "almost all year round", according to Fresh Plaza, in stores and retail chains across Spain, including El Corte Inglés.

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.
