Nutrients in Avocado

Avocados are considered to have a lot of calories.  1/3 of a medium avocado (50 grams or 1.7 ounces) is considered to be the recommended serving size. An ounce of avocado would give out 50 calories of energy.

Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat, which is a "good" kind of fat, helping control bad cholesterol levels, as long as you eat them in moderation. Avocados offer around 20 vitamins and minerals. So in a 100-gram serving, it offers 485 mg of potassium, 81 mcg of folate, 0.257 mg of vitamin B6, 10 mg of vitamin C, and 2.07 mg of vitamin E.

Avocados provide thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), and vitamin A (Retinol), and in some varieties, the flesh contains as much as 25 per cent of unsaturated oil.
