About Peanut Oil Edit
Peanut oil (arachis oil) is an organic material oil derived from peanuts, noted to have the aroma and taste of its parent, legume. In the UK it is marketed as "groundnut oil."
It is often used in Japanese, South Asian, and Southeast Asian cuisine as much as olive oil is used in the Mediterranean. Peanut oil is appreciated for its high smoke point relative to many other cooking oils. Its major component fatty acids are oleic acid (56.6%) and linoleic acid (26.7%). The oil also contains some palmitic acid, arachidic acid, arachidonic acid, behenic acid, lignoceric acid, and other fatty acids.
