About Us & Our Ahuacatlan Avocado Oil

28f7ee2941807ddaa73a31098f5a63afStorino’s Quality Products was established to bring Ahuacatlan Avocado Oil into the United States. Our mission is to redefine the market for avocado oil by competitively pricing 100% Pure Avocado Oil to compete with mid priced olive oil that consumers are currently using. Because avocado oil offers cooking versatility, great taste and amazing health benefits it is a superior choice. It is through our passion for this outstanding product and hard work that we can offer this wonderful oil to our valued customers.

Most consumers are not too familiar with avocado oil. This is because avocado oil has been traditionally marketed as a high end gourmet oil with a gourmet price. As a result, only a niche market segment is familiar with avocado oil.

When we share our knowledge and passion about Ahuacatlan Avocado Oil , we usually are asked two questions:

  1. I have never heard of avocado oil, what is it?
  2. What do you do with avocado oil?

I asked the same two questions when I first discovered Ahuacatlan Avocado Oil in Mexico. I discovered the oil from being a pilot.  Being a corporate pilot, we traveled to Mexico all the time.  So much that all the local tourist attractions became very old– even the pools and the beaches.  For entertainment the flight crew would go to COSTCO.  It was always interesting to see which products were the same at the COSTCO’s in the United States and which products were not.  When  I first saw the “emerald green bottles” I was fascinated.  I loved to cook and had so many questions about this oil called Ahuacatlan–a name that none of the flight crew could pronounce.  I then asked the question to my flight crew:  “What do you do with Avocado Oil?  Nobody had an answer to my question.   Since the labels were in Spanish, I could only answer a few basic questions about the oil.  I decided to buy the oil and bring it home and cook with it.

AspragusAvocado-OilBack home, I was simply amazed when I started to cook with the oil.  My first  observation was the extremely high smoke point of avocado oil.  I could now brown and sear food to perfection.  Additionally, it did not make food “oily” or have a negative “oil taste transfer” like other oils.  I was also amazed how light and delicate the oil was and how it work so well in salads and sauces.  One simple observations was made when I replaced butter with avocado oil in making the kids grilled cheese sandwiches.  The sandwiches were ‘golden brown”, non-oiley and tasted like I used butter.  I also started to noticed that I was no longer using “butter” and “olive oil.”  That says a lot when a Italian puts aside olive oil. I was using Ahuacatlan Avocado Oil for everything.

The next phase came the extensive research into learning about avocado oil.  I was surprised that avocado oil  is considered the superior oil among gourmet chefs and dieticians/nutritionists.  Being so interested in food and cooking, I could not believe that I was not familiar with this wonderful oil.  Avocado oil has three main benefits over other cooking oils:

  1. Cooking versatility:   Avocado oil also has the highest smoke point (520 degrees F) of all plant oils making it superior for high heat cooking. Compared to olive oil with low smoke point at about 350 degrees F, avocado oil allows for various cooking applications like sautéing, stir frying, frying, and browning without burning. Furthermore, avocado oil is also wonderful for with dips, veggies, marinades, and bread. It’s great from sizzle to drizzle.
  2. Light and delicate flavor:  Avocado oil has a “buttery” texture which brings out the flavor of your food.
  3. Health Benefits:  Avocado oil is considered to be one of the healthiest oils on the market. It is rich in monounsaturated fats, omega 3’s, beta-sitosterol and antioxidants. Because of its high smoke point, the oil is not releasing harmful free radicals in your food. When you see any oil start to smoke, it is releasing harmful carcinogenic properties and vapors into your food and kitchen environment.

OilIt is because of the love of Ahuacatlan Avocado Oil that I formed a company called Storino’s Quality Products to bring this wonderful oil to the United States.   I take great pleasure in knowing that my company enables other’s to share in the experience of a product that is so unbelievable.  I simply love talking about this wonderful oil, if you ever have any questions or comments, please give me a call and I would love to talk to you about my passion for Ahuacatlan Avocado Oil.
