Groundnut Oil

Groundnut Oil (Peanut Oil)

Peanut oil was used as the original source of fuel for the diesel engine. India exported around 100000 tons of groundnut oil in 2003-04 after 4 decades, as crop failed in Senegal and Argentina. Groundnut oil is an excellent all-rounder with the advantage of having no marked flavor yet at the same time being quite luscious. Extracted from peanuts (so also called peanut oil), groundnut oil is pale in color and of a light consistency. It has a subtle, pleasant flavor and can be heated to a high temperature without burning. We are the leading Groundnut/Peanut Oil Exporters in India
