Made from peanut plant seeds, peanut oil — also known as Arachis Oil or Groundnut Oil  — is commonly used in baking, frying, and other forms of cooking.While Arachis Oil offers a slightly nutty flavor, it’s generally a good, neutral option to use for most recipes. It has a high smoke point (around 450°F), meaning it can withstand high temperatures without burning.

Arachis Oil is rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant that offers many protective benefits against chronic disease. This, along with its healthy fat content, means peanut oil can be a great addition to your diet — as long as you consume it in moderation.
