Smartika’s Cold Pressed Groundnut oil, also known as "Peanut oil" is mostly used in cooking.  Groundnut oil is rich in vitamin E, minerals and organic compounds.

It has a very safe balance of fatty acids that can boost your health in a variety of ways. Oil is extracted via traditional cold pressing in wooden chekku or vats to retain the rich nutrients and flavour. 

Its nutty scent and powerful aroma infuses with the ingredients while cooking.  With a high smoking point of 450 Degrees, it is a good choice for deep frying. 

Peanut oil contains monounsaturated fatty acids, like oleic acid, which increase the levels of “good cholesterol” called HDL in the blood.

This beneficial cholesterol actually helps to scrape off and reduce bad cholesterol (LDL).  The vitamin E in ground nut oil fights free radicals, which can otherwise could be harmful.
