Avocado Oil Short Course

Avocado Oil Short Course (Virtual & live-Zoom Q&A)

This course was last held in August, 2022.  If you are interested in taking it, please send an email to Dr. Wang at scwang@ucdavis.edu. Avocado oil producers want to make sure their products are of excellent quality to deliver the best taste and health benefits to the consumers. Professional buyers, importers and distributors want to ensure the products they choose are not only of excellent quality, but made of pure avocado oil. In this online course, researchers and experts from University of California, Davis and New Zealand will help the participants gain understanding of factors that affect chemical parameters of avocado oil and develop skills to interpret the laboratory results so the producers, professional buyers and importers will be equipped to make the best post-harvest, processing and purchasing decisions for their companies.
