Recipe ideas and use of Cooking & Frying Oil
Our Cooking & Frying Oil is neutral in taste and smell. Through this, the oil elegantly emphasizes the individual flavor of the food, for instance it can be used instead of butter for shortcrust pastry or cake dough. Moreover, it is suited for searing and deep-frying when it comes to meat, fish, tofu, veggie burgers, or fried potatoes. Its high vitamin E content and great proportion of monounsaturated fatty acids make this oil a valuable everyday companion.
BIO PLANÈTE Cooking & Frying Oil is also available in a convenient, eco-friendly and economical 3 L »Oil in Box« size. This economy pack is perfect for heavy usage, both at home and in restaurants. In the »Oil in Box«, the oil stays fresh longer after opening. Also, the small oil-tap makes a precise and drop-free pouring possible.

Where does the vitamin E come from? Was it added to the oils artificially?
Vitamin E occurs naturally in cold-pressed cooking oils because the plants make this vitamin and, due to its chemical properties, it passes to the cooking oil during cold pressing. Incidentally, the following are especially high in vitamin E: natural Sunflower Oil, natural Safflower Oil and natural or roasted Almond Oil.
What conditions and standards are behind the organic seal on our oils?
An organic seal is a quality and test seal with which products from organic farming are marked. In 2010, a binding new organic seal was introduced throughout the EU, also known as the EU organic logo, which identifies food from organic farming (a star-shaped leaf on a green background).
This seal replaced the German state organic seal (green hexagon with "BIO" lettering), which had existed since 2001, with the same standards in terms of content. Due to the high degree of popularity of its predecessor, both seals are still often used today.
The use of this certification is strictly regulated by the publisher and is subject to ecological requirements. Compliance with the criteria by producers is ensured by a documentation obligation as well as regular sampling and examination of product samples. Compliance with the regulations is monitored in Europe by the responsible Eco-Control bodies.
Foods labelled with the organic seal must, among other things:
• Not be produced by or with/from genetically modified organisms
• Not to be produced with the use of synthetic pesticides
• Contain no more than 5% conventionally produced components (in exceptional cases, if ingredients are not available in ecological quality, in accordance with Annex VO)
• not contain sweeteners and stabilisers as well as synthetic colourants, preservatives and flavour enhancers
• not result from monotonous crop rotations (two-, three- and four-field farming)
• and much more: more information on the EU Organic Label
Can I use the oil even after the expiration date?
We can no longer guarantee the oil's perfect quality after its best before date.
In the interest of sustainability, however, we would like to point out the following: vegetable oils do not belong to the group of very sensitive foodstuffs and can usually still be consumed after the best-before date. This is especially true if the bottle is still sealed and it has been stored away from heat sources. Therefore, we recommend using your senses to test the oil before disposing of it. Oil that has been stored for too long can be easily recognized by smell and taste. If it tastes rancid or unusual (off), it should not be consumed.
How do I remove the labels from the jars and bottles?
Since we use oil-soluble glue for the labels, the best way to remove the label from the coconut jars is with oil. Simply coat the label with oil, let it absorb overnight and peel off easily in the morning. However, if the label is already off and only the glue is on it, this method doesn't work as well. In this context, we have been told of positive experiences with orange oil cleaner, such as from AlmaWin or Sodasan. Another option is a hair dryer - because heat also loosens the label well.
