Dante Vitamin Enriched Peanut Oil is obtained from the Arachis hypogaea L. seeds (American peanut), processed and enriched with vitamin E and vitamin B6.
Among vegetable oils it is the most prestigious thanks to its balanced fatty acids composition, making it similar to olive oil.
Dante Vitamin Enriched Peanut Oil with added vitamins has a very balanced composition of free fatty acids, as it contains many monounsaturated fatty acids and few polyunsaturated ones. That is why this oil is resistant to the oxidation process and has a high smoke point ( more than 220°C).
It is also enriched with vitamin E and vitamin B6. One tablespoon (10 g) of Dante various seeds oil contains 9 mg of vitamin E (75% RDA) and 0.25 mg of vitamin B6 (18% RDA).
Vitamins are macronutrients that our body needs for perfect functioning and are essential to regularize many chemical reactions.
As they can’t be synthesized by our body except few, they need to be daily introduced through our diet.
Vitamin B6 has a primary role in the amino-acid metabolism, so it is important for a proper use of proteins that we introduce through food.
The biological function of vitamin E is instead mainly due to its anti-oxidant properties thanks to which it protects cell membranes from oxidation damage. It is thus important in hindering the action of free radicals and in slowing cell ageing.
Like the whole range of Dante vegetable oils also the Dante various seeds oil is gluten free and so suitable for people affected by celiac disease.
Use in cooking
Dante Vitamin Enriched Peanut Oil is, with no doubt, an excellent oil for frying thanks to its free fatty acids composition, making it very stable to high frying temperatures.
Its light flavour and its delicate smell make it a perfect raw dressing if you want to emphasize the original taste of food without covering it. Used as dressing it maintains unaltered its nutritional properties and vitamin contents.
