Avocado Pits?

I was bouncing around the internet and found the following statement on one of the raw food sites. Does anyone know if there is any truth to this? Has anyone ever tried it?

“The avocado pit is known to have the most soluble fiber of any food on Earth… even more than oatmeal. Oatmeal doesn’t even come close! The pit is so bland that I don’t even notice it, and no, it won’t hurt your blender. The pit has almost no taste. This soluble fiber can help get rid of all the arterial plaque”



  • I think there are toxic substances in the pit, besides the beneficial oils. The toxin is known as persin, which actually is being studied to kill breast cancer cells. I would still stay clear of eating them.
