Dietitian Approved: New Study Links Avocado Consumption with Improved Diet Quality & Nutrient Intake


Dietary guidelines around the world recommend increased consumption of fruit and vegetables as they may help support health and wellness and potentially reduce the risk of chronic diseases. However, data indicates that in the U.S., less than 3% of men and less than 6% of women (aged 19 to 50 years) consume the recommended number of daily fruit and vegetable servings. Unlike other fruits, avocados are low in sugar and contain 15% MUFA rich oil and contain a variety of vitamins and minerals. New research shows significant associations between avocado consumption and an improved quality diet and nutrient intake; lower body weight, BMI, and waist circumference; and reduced risk of metabolic syndrome.
