Avocado is a highly potential functional fruit with significant health benefits which has high demand for consumption with a preferable taste. The fruit is one of the oil sources that still needs further examination on its probable kinetic behavior and oxidative stability as well as some characteristic behavior to commercialize and increase the market demand as functional oil. Hence, this study was motivated primarily for obtaining the Arrhenius kinetic information about avocado oil to evaluate the oxidative stability and provide predictive information about the shelf life by using the Rancimat method which is an accelerated shelf life test. Specifically, this research paper presents the study of the physical, physicochemical, chemical, and oxidative stability tests with the shelf life expectancy and kinetic property of avocado oil. According to the analyses, avocado oil has 210 days of predicted shelf life at 25 °C. This gives it a greater chance to be considered a good alternative to other oils as well as its antioxidant and phenolic content. According to the findings presented in this study, avocado oil has a very similar profile to olive oil and can be used as an alternative functional oil source.
