Hi and welcome to Discuss Cooking. I love avocado's but see no need to use them powdered. Have you used it?

Hi avoavoavocado and welcome to DC.

From one Californian to another, I can't imagine using avocado powder when we get such beautiful fresh ones here. You are in San Diego, right? Mexico has wonderful avocados.

True that Cheryl, and this Heritage Valley here grows an abundance of Hass avocado's along with lemons and oranges for export.
I'm really puzzled over the idea of avocado powder. Why?

That spice company that someone posted they other day, has it. If you click on it, it will tell or suggest to you what you would use it for. I saw it under powders.

The reviews here are what I would have expected.

Ah-ha! So that's what's probably in those packets of Guacamole mix.

Going not too far off topic, I saw a cooking show where they had some kind of dextrose powder. Odorless, flavorless, safe.
Any product containing mostly fat, it would get absorbed by the Dextrose and become a powder. I thought that was kinda cool.
I forget how they used it. I bet you that stuff is used a lot in today's packaged meals.
