Description & production

Peanut oil refined Ph. Eur. is obtained from the shelled seeds of Arachis hypogaea L. by pressing and extraction of the previously crushed, heat-treated and flaked peanuts. The oil is then gently refined.

A clear, yellowish, viscous liquid. Very slightly soluble in ethanol (96%); miscible with light petroleum. It solidifies at about 2°C.

Gustav Heess

Our peanut oil refined is always specified according to the latest version of the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.). Therefore, we monitor our peanut oil refined Ph. Eur. according to a special test plan and have designed our complete supply chain including quality control and storage in such a way that mixing with other oils is excluded. To achieve this high quality level, we only work with selected producers. The good cooperation is also shown by the long-standing business relations and regular audits. In order to be able to guarantee our customers a high level of supply security, we have established various supply chains. In doing so, we pay attention to the different origins of the seeds from as many different continents as possible. This means that local events (e.g. extreme weather conditions) have hardly any influence on our ability to supply. Not only for the seeds, but also for the oil mill and refinery we pay attention to different locations and can therefore supply our customers reliably at all times.

Peanut oil is not suitable for everyone despite its wide range of uses. This is because peanuts contain allergens and are responsible for the majority of nutritional allergic reactions. Due to refining, the allergenic peanut allergen is no longer contained in the oil and can therefore also be tolerated by peanut allergy sufferers.

  • Food

    • Basis for a wide use in the food industry, e.g. in margarine or for refining soups and spices

Sustainability & responsibility

We audit our producers regularly and pay attention not only to compliance with the agreed high quality requirements, but also to the way we treat our employees and the impact on the environment. Our producers regularly prepare sustainability reports and document the careful use of resources in detail. In doing so, not only the European oil production (oil mill and refinery) is considered, but also the entire supply chain including the countries where our high-quality peanuts are grown.
