Peanut (Groundnut) Oil

Groundnuts (peanuts) for oil production are grown primarily in China, India, West and North Africa and the USA.  Because there are relatively limited supplies, and a constant high demand, Peanut Oil usually commands a considerable price premium over most other cooking or frying oils. Groundnuts contain 40-50% oil.

Groundnut oil has a moderate content of polyunsaturated fatty acids and has a good heat stability making it suitable for frying.  The oil has a characteristic nutty taste.
