The first time I heard that gluten was found in some popular baking sprays, I was shocked. Perhaps I ought not have been. After all, gluten has been known to lurk in some surprising places.
Upon learning this I thought to myself, no more cooking spray for me. It wasn’t worth the possible contamination.
So for years I’ve been greasing my baking pans and cooking vessels with a pastry brush and liquid oil. It was a messy job, and I always ended up using too much or not enough oil. I missed the ease, convenience, and speed a spray provides.
Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Oil Spray is my latest find, and I am happy to have it as my new kitchen companion. I already sprayed a roasting pan with it, and then proceeded to bake breaded eggplant slices. They browned up beautifully and did not stick to the pan, as they normally would have.
I also tried the spray when prepping a glass baking dish for some salted tahini caramel popcorn bars, and the same thing: no sticking and easy clean up!
The Heat Is On
Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Oil Spray has a 500° smoke point, so you can safely roast at high temperatures. You can even use the spray on foods before they hit a hot grill.
No chemicals or propellants are used in this product. Instead, air pressure allows the product to deliver an effective coating to your cookware. The spray is also nonGMO and free of glyphosate residue.
The avocado oil in this spray is neutral tasting, so it doesn’t impart a strong or off-putting flavor. In addition to the unflavored variety, Chosen Foods offers avocado spray in the following extract-flavored offerings: Chipotle, Garlic, Italian Herb, Pumpkin Spice, Gingerbread, and Simply Cinnamon.
A 6-oz bottle of Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Spray retails for $10.99.
