    Groundnut Oil

    Groundnut oil (arachis oil) is an organic material oil derived from peanuts, noted to have the aroma and taste of its parent legume. It is often used in Chinese, South Asian and Southeast Asian cuisine as much as olive oil is used in the Mediterranean. Groundnut oil is appreciated for its high smoke point relative to many other cooking oils. Groundnut oil can also be used to make soap in a process called saponification. The soap produced is soft and stable.
