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.
Fish and Chip lovers across the UK will be coming together again on Friday 1 June 2018 to once again celebrate the nation’s favourite dish and NEODA are proud to be organising this special day again. Following the phenomenal success of the event last year, National Fish & Chip Day 2018 will see people throughout the country celebrating their love of the this iconic meal from fish & chip shops, pub chains, restaurants, retailers, to the fishermen and farmers who provide the sustainable and natural ingredients used to create it. We want to help Fish & Chip shops across the UK benefit from this awareness day and can offer advice on decorating your shops, running special promotions and competitions and generally creating a huge buzz about fish and chips. Keep an eye on this website for further information.
