Cold-pressed groundnut oil, also known as cold-pressed peanut oil, is an edible oil extracted from peanuts (groundnuts) at low temperatures, typically below 60°C (140°F). Similar to other cold-pressed oils, this method helps retain the natural nutrients, flavors, and aroma of the peanuts.

The cold-pressing method for groundnut oil involves the following steps:

Seed Cleaning: The peanuts are thoroughly cleaned to remove any dirt, stones, or debris.

Seed Crushing: The cleaned peanuts are mechanically crushed or pressed to extract the oil.

Oil Separation: The oil is then separated from the crushed peanut solids using various techniques such as filtration or centrifugation.

Cold-pressed groundnut oil has a distinct nutty flavor and is rich in monounsaturated fats, particularly oleic acid (an omega-9 fatty acid). It also contains vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant. Due to its composition, it is considered a heart-healthy oil that can help improve cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease when used as part of a balanced diet.

This oil has a relatively high smoke point, making it suitable for cooking, frying, and sautéing. Additionally, it is commonly used in salad dressings and as a flavoring in various dishes.

As with any oil, moderation is key because groundnut oil is calorie-dense. While cold-pressed groundnut oil retains more nutrients than refined versions, it's still important to consume it in appropriate quantities as part of a well-balanced diet.
