If you bought green avocados, it is recommended to store them at room temperature. So they get up faster. To speed up the process, place the produce in a paper bag along with the bananas. If the avocado is ripe (the flesh has turned a light green color), then you should not store it in the refrigerator for more than three days.
To prolong the life of the cut half of an avocado (as you know, the product quickly darkens in the air), it is recommended to use a simple onion. The vegetable prevents the avocado from browning thanks to its volatile oils.
“It’s important to put the avocado and onion in the fridge in an airtight container with a lid,” she said.
Another way to preserve cut foods is to drizzle them with lemon or lime juice, then place them in a plastic bag and refrigerate.
Previously, researchers found that including avocados in the diet promotes the production of an antioxidant called glutathione. It is necessary to filter harmful substances from the liver and protect the cells of the body from damage.
