Usage & Storage Tips

FAQ's

What is cold-pressed groundnut oil?

Cold-pressed groundnut oil is extracted from groundnuts using a mechanical method that involves minimal heat. This process helps retain the natural nutrients and flavour of the oil, making it healthier and more aromatic compared to oils produced using high heat methods.

How is cold-pressed groundnut oil different from refined groundnut oil?

Unlike refined groundnut oil, cold-pressed groundnut oil is minimally processed without the use of chemical solvents or high temperatures. This preserves its natural antioxidants and fatty acids, which can be lost during the refining process.

What are the health benefits of using cold-pressed groundnut oil?

Cold-pressed groundnut oil is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which can help reduce bad cholesterol levels and improve heart health. It also contains vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects your cells from damage.

Can cold-pressed groundnut oil be used for cooking at high temperatures?

Yes, cold-pressed groundnut oil has a relatively high smoke point, making it suitable for various cooking methods including frying, sautéing, and baking. Its robust flavour also enhances the taste of the dishes.

What types of dishes is cold-pressed groundnut oil best used for?

Cold-pressed groundnut oil is versatile and can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. It is particularly great for Indian cuisines, enhancing flavours in curries, fried snacks, and even in sweets like halwa.

Is there any difference in colour or consistency in cold-pressed groundnut oil?

Cold-pressed groundnut oil tends to have a deeper golden colour and a thicker consistency compared to refined oils. These characteristics indicate minimal processing and higher nutrient retention.

How can I tell if my cold-pressed groundnut oil has gone bad?

If the oil smells rancid or bitter, it's likely spoiled. Changes in colour or the presence of cloudiness can also indicate that the oil is no longer good to use.

Can cold-pressed groundnut oil be used for deep-frying?

While it is suitable for deep-frying due to its high smoke point, frequent use of any oil for deep frying can degrade its nutritional quality. It's best used in moderation for frying purposes.
