· Virgin ·
We only use peanuts from selected farmers in China for the fair trade Peanut Oil Virgin. Thanks to BIO PLANÈTE’s 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 Virgin Peanut Oil
Virgin Peanut Oil is excellent for frying and baking. Compared to other frying oils, it is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and adds a wonderful peanut flavour to a wide variety of dishes.
The oil goes wonderfully with Asian dishes: the nutty, exotic aroma of peanuts is the ideal accompaniment to meat, fish and vegetables. But also fried potatoes and pastries such as cookies as well as muffins get a great flavour from the
BIO PLANÈTE Virgin Peanut Oil.

What does cold pressing mean?
"Cold pressing" assumes that no external heat is added. When we cold-press oils, the temperature is monitored and we ensure that no high temperatures are reached. We can therefore guarantee that the quality of the oil is not impaired.
What does "virgin" mean in the context of oils?
A virgin oil is a cooking oil which is obtained exclusively using mechanical processes without preheating the raw materials. It is not subjected to chemical or thermal treatment or to any other refinement process and thus preserves its authentic, natural taste and the essential components of the raw material. This also makes it suitable for eating raw.
