As with all oils, smoke points vary depending on quality and processing methods. Unrefined extra virgin avocado oil generally has a smoke point between 400° F – 480° F (204° C – 249° C). This means it’s not the ideal choice for high heat frying, but a fine choice for medium heat frying, mayonnaise, and dressings. If you’re looking to cook with avocado oil on high heat, a refined version is more appropriate with its higher smoke point of 480° F – 520° F (249° C – 271° C), but be aware some of the nutritional value is lost with refinement. This company has its own unique low heat refining process. It retains 80% of the beta-sitosterol and 60% of the Vitamin E that you would usually find only in unrefined virgin oil.
