As many sushi lovers know, avocado is a staple ingredient in many rolls nowadays. But did you know that it wasn’t until the 1970s when sushi made its way into the diet of the average American. Avocado didn’t become a necessary addition until a few years later, and its delicious consistency became a popular choice as time went on. At White Coconut Thai Restaurant, we have a delicious sushi bar with a large selection of sashimi, rolls, and special rolls for you to try. Next time you’re in looking for a Thai restaurant in Massachusetts, you know where to go!
Avocado is now a key ingredient in many foods, especially in sushi! The Hass Avocado Board announced that in 2015, the number of avocados sold in the United States had reached an enormous 4.25 billion avocados per year! Which is to say, a lot of avocados. But there are many reasons as to why this food has gained so much popularity. For one, avocados are full of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, various Vitamins, and oleic acid.
These fats and acids can help the skin feel soft, hydrate your cells, and target insulin resistance. While that seems far-fetched for one food to do such a thing, an avocado on the regular will do wonders for your body when added to a healthy diet. So, it’s pretty easy to see why they’re a popular superfood.
How did avocado become a common addition to your favorite sushi? Well, let’s talk about it. It’s said that a chef in Los Angeles was having trouble finding toro for his sushi. Toro is the term for the fatty parts of a tuna. It can be expensive and difficult to source sometimes. Therefore, this chef found a solution: avocado. It has a similar melt-in-your-mouth consistency integral to making some of the most popular rolls. For example, the famous California Roll heavily relies on avocado!
