While people take great pleasure in eating the fruit pulp, they usually discard the seed, but is there more to avocado's core than meets the eye?Researchers from the Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) say that the overlooked avocado seeds yield an extract that may have important anti-inflammatory properties.

Over the past decade or so, the Penn State researchers have extracted and developed a compound from avocado seeds, producing a vibrant orange liquid.In 2016, after patenting this avocado-derived compound as a dye, Joshua Lambert and Gregory Ziegler founded a company Persea Naturals that now distribute it as a natural food color additive.
