Peanut oil (arachis oil or groundnut oil) is a familiar and frequently used basic oil. Peanuts originated in Brazil but they are now cultivated in all tropical regions. Peanut oil contains a high percentage of monounsaturated fatty acids and a relatively low percentage of poly-unsaturated fatty acids. For this reason, peanut oil is considered one of the best kinds of oils when it comes to exposure to prolonged heat.
