MIRA is a Social and Environmental Project: many people have benefited from the avocado oil manufacturing plant in the North of Ecuador, where employment used to be scarce. Nowadays, many small producers are growing avocados and have become our suppliers to whom we pay a fair market price, thus providing them with a stable income. Not only is this having a positive impact on the economies of the towns surrounding the farm, but the planting of avocado trees is also contributing towards reforestation. Another reason to feel good about MIRA!
Mira Extra Virgin Avocado Oil enhances and complements the natural flavours of other ingredients, rather than overpowering them. Due to its high viscosity, it coats food rather than being absorbed into it. This makes it more economical than conventional oils like olive oil, since less of it needs to be used. Avocado oil has a very high burn/smoke point of around 491°F (against 400°F for olive oil) an important difference when cooking, because that is the point at which the healthy monounsaturated molecules become harmful. The smoking point is the degree to which you can heat the oil before it begins to burn and smoke. Once the oil begins to smoke it creates free radicals, which are very harmful to your health and are a major cause of many diseases. This is one of many reasons why MIRA Avocado Oil is a smart and healthy choice.
Thanks to its location right on the Equator, Ecuador is a country with a very high amount of sun. This is the reason why Ecuadorian roses are the most famous in the world, as well as our cocoa and bananas. Equadorian avocados experience the same advantage: our high-altitude avocados are grown 6200 feet above sea level, ripened by the bright warm sun. Our plantations are irrigated by natural spring waters, and the weather conditions are those of an eternal spring, thus enabling sustainable year-round harvests.
