Footnotes for Avocados, raw, California
Nutrient data for this listing was provided by UDSA SR20. Each "~" indicates a missing or incomplete value.

Percent Daily Values (%DV) are for adults or children aged 4 or older, and are based on a 2000 Calorie reference diet. Your daily values may be higher or lower based on your individual needs.

NDs Opinion, Completeness Score™, Fullness Factor™, Rating, Estimated Glycemic Load (eGL), and Better Choices Substitutions™ are editorial opinions of NutritionData.com, given without warranty, and are not intended to replace the advice of a nutritionist or healthcare professional. NDs opinions and ratings are based on weighted averages of the nutrient densities of those nutrients for which the FDA has established Daily Values, and do not consider other nutrients which may be important to your health, nor take into account your individual needs. Consequently, NDs higher-rated foods may not necessarily be better than lower-rated ones. All foods, regardless of their rating, have the potential to play an important role in your diet.

The Amino Acid Score has not been corrected for digestibility, which could reduce its value.
