Would durian be considered a compliant fat (?) source?


I get them frozen from my favorite Asia shop (ingredients: frozen durian and nothing else) and usually use them like avocado, e.g. for some creamy goodness in salads.

They don't have as much fat as avocado, so maybe have it in addition to another source, unless you're using a lot of it. But yes, I would imagine they're in the same category as avocado.

You can consume durian, but it is not much of a fat source. According to Wikipedia its macro breakdown for 100 grams of fruit is 

27.09 g
Dietary fiber 3.8 g  
5.33 g
1.47 g

The same amount of avocado has this macro composition

8.53 g
Sugars 0.66 g Dietary fiber 6.7 g  
14.66 g
Saturated 2.13 g Monounsaturated 9.80 g Polyunsaturated 1.82 g  
2 g

Thanks to the both of you!

Wow, I would have guessed it must contain more fat, from the taste and "feeling of satisfaction". 

The amount I would eat in a sitting is usually a good chunk so it might "even out" compared to avocado. 

Durian is more an occasional yummy luxury rather than a daily staple anyway. But it's a good thing to be aware of, to make sure I'll add some extra fatty goodness to it when I do have it.
