The toxin person is contained in the avocado seed
You hear again and again that the avocado seed can be used to prepare food and drinks. However, this is not recommended – and if at all only in very small quantities.
- The reason: the avocado seed contains the poisoned person, which is also found throughout the plant. If you want to eat the kernel, you should only do so in small amounts.
- Many swear by eating the avocado seed because it is said to contain unsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants. However, experts doubt this addition, which is why you can safely do it without processing.
- But it’s not just the benefit of the core that’s controversial, it’s also said to not taste particularly good. The avocado core is considered to be extremely bitter and is difficult to process due to its hardness.
- Incidentally, you should keep the avocado seed and the entire plant away from your pets, because the person it contains is very toxic to the animals and can even kill them.
