Peanut oil: Is it good for cooking?

Fact Checked

Peanut Oil

Story at-a-glance -

  • Peanut oil is currently one of the most popular oils used in the kitchen, as it can be used for frying, sautéing or simply adding a mild nutty flavor to dishes
  • Peanut oil is added to certain foods, so always read the label when grocery shopping. If you're dining out, ask your server to check if your food contains or is cooked with peanut, arachis or groundnut oil
  • The stability and shelf life of peanut oil are mainly brought on by its fatty acid composition, which is at least 20% saturated and 80% unsaturated fats

Warning: This oil comes with potentially damaging side effects due to either the ingredient it's made from or the manufacturing process used to extract it. Because these negative effects overshadow the potential benefits, I do not recommend this oil for therapeutic use. Always be aware of the potential side effects of any herbal oil before using.
