Avocado stones (pits) are extremely high in insoluble fibre, which binds to excess cholesterol, and there is more anti-oxidant in the stone than the rest of the avocado!
The avocado stone is surprisingly soft – simply cut through the whole avocado, and the knife goes through the stone. Safer than trying to cut a slippery stone.
I’ve tried the stone grated in salad – it’s OK if you like a bitter taste. The best way is to add half an avocado stone to your green smoothie.
