so is seen as nutricious by helping you

feel fuller for longer. it resists spoiling for

its high monounsaturated content, it is

considered more healthy than saturated

before it turns rancid. Peanut oil comes

in diffferent varietes like extra virgin, cold

pressed peanut oil and peanut extract.

peanut milk.
