· Virgin ·
Our BIO PLANÈTE Peanut Oil Virgin is purely natural. We rely on an especially intense selection of nuts and are supplied by our agricultural partners only with valuable, shelled nuts of the most superior quality. The BIO PLANÈTE fair trade project puts us in the position to guarantee valuable support in optimizing the farming for our Chinese small farming partners, which work under fair conditions and are adequately compensated for their efforts.
Among virgin oils, peanut oil is one of the few that can be used for frying and deep frying. It is a valuable alternative to conventional solid frying fats, since it has a considerably higher proportion of oleic acid. This makes our peanut oil ideal for the preparation of stir-fries: The robust, exotic fragrance of peanuts makes it a wonderful companion for meat, fish, and root vegetables. And even fried potatoes receive a delicious aroma when prepared with 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.
