    I meant one pack, with 4 avocados in it for £1.80!
    Hopefully that's not a disappointment!!! :)

    Thanks, no, it's about what I would expect to pay. In fact I would have been a bit upset to read that someone else was succeeding so much better than me in being a thrifty shopper! (Especially as I don't even much enjoy the wretched avocados and just eat them out of duty.

    This short video is interesting on the difference between eating whole fruit, and fructose from other sources : https://nutritionfacts.org/video/if-fructose-is-bad-what-about-fruit/

    Any fructose is bad for diabetics because it digests in the liver. The liver regards it as toxic (like alcohol) and it is laid down as fat. It is a major cause of fatty livers. Fatty livers lead to insulin resistance and T2 diabetes. Whilst we have fatty livers we will never gain full control of diabetes.
