News and tips

Avocados are rich in “good” fats, antioxidants and heart-protecting substances; the garlic and onion help lowering cholesterol levels and protect your heart. The guacamole sauce should be kept in the fridge for two or three days in an air-tight container. It should be covered with a little oil in order not to brown. It is good for seasoning canapés and rolls (particularly piadina bread, chips or crackers); it can be served as an appetizer with raw vegetables or as seasoning for rice or salads.
