There are two kinds of peanut oils out there -refined and unrefined. Refined peanut oil has been leached of all flavor and color, making it perfect for cooking at high temperatures. Devoid of almost all taste, this kind of oil won't impart any nutty flavors to the food. Prized for its high smoke point, you’ll often see refined peanut oil used in deep frying and sauteing foods.
Unrefined peanut oil, on the other hand, still contains the amazing nutty aroma and flavor of the peanuts it was made from. Guenard’s virgin peanut oil is simply bursting with these flavors and should be used to add savory rich notes to your recipes. Instead of frying or cooking with it, try drizzling virgin peanut oil over salads or roasted vegetables. Add it to dressings, sauces, and marinades, or bake with it to add a deep nutty flavor to your cakes and quick breads. However, you use your delicious peanut oil we're positive you'll love the tasty flavors it will impart to your dishes.
