Until a decade ago cold pressed groundnut oil was the primary means of ethnic Indian cooking. Unlike refined oils, cold pressed oils do not contain any preservatives or undergo chemical processing. This allows the oil to be retained in its pure form with 100% natural ingredients intact. Natural groundnut oil has a range of dietary and medicinal benefits.
- It is absolutely free of cholesterol and will not lead to any heart or stomach diseases if used daily. On the other hand, most refined oils are the major causes of cholesterol-based diseases.
- Cold pressed groundnut oil is highly flavorful and adds a unique taste to the food. Groundnut oil is a primary necessity for true ethnic Indian food and especially Gujarati food.
