BIO PLANÈTE Toasted Peanut Oil is exclusively pressed from Fairtrade peanuts from selected Chinese farmers.
Thanks to the Fairtrade project, we can ensure that local small farmers receive modern equipment, access to agricultural knowledge and fair prices for their organically grown peanuts. This form of partnership enables local investment and sustainable structural and economic improvements.
The oil is pressed from 100% Fairtrade certified peanuts. Certified by the Swiss Max Havelaar Foundation, we can thus offer our customers a Fairtrade Peanut Oil that meets the highest ecological and social standards. More information at www.info.fairtrade.net
Recipe ideas and use of Toasted Peanut Oil
Toasted Peanut Oil is excellent for frying and baking, especially for wok dishes and in Asian cuisine. Compared to other frying oils, it is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and gives a wonderful peanut flavour with a roasted aroma to a wide variety of dishes.
The nutty, exotic scent of peanuts is ideal for meat, fish and vegetables. But also desserts, pastries (cookies and muffins), fried potatoes and cold dishes get a great flavour from BIO PLANÈTE Peanut Oil.

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
What does the Fairtrade seal on food mean?
The Fairtrade seal is probably the best-known certification for goods that originate from fair trade and that have been produced in compliance with certain social, ecological and economic criteria.
The seal enables small farmers' cooperatives to achieve stable prices and long-term trading partnerships. Both farmers and employees on plantations receive an additional Fairtrade premium for community projects. The standards also contain criteria on democratic organisational structures, environmental protection and safe working conditions. The controls are carried out by the certification company FLOCERT.
