Our groundnut oil is an all-purpose, healthy cooking choice. PUVI means Earth, a reminder of the soil we so value. Our Cold Pressed oils come from a family-run business that's been in agriculture for centuries. We take care to source groundnuts that are not malformed, rotten or stored for a long time (thus avoiding noxious pesticides to keep off pests). This groundnut oil (mungfali oil) is unrefined and clarified naturally. This keeps nutrients intact. The oil may appear a bit cloudy or have tiny sediments at the bottom of the bottle; but it is not a cause of concern. This is not a mass production oil, it's a really pure handcrafted oil made for discerning customers who appreciate quality.
We maintain an all-natural production process and don’t standardise our cold pressed groundnut oils using artificial colours or essences. There may be a minor difference in aroma and colour across batches. Foaming/Frothing can happen during deep frying in any cold pressed, raw oil. It's because of excessive moisture in food and oil heat. Try frying a small ball of tamarind first to prevent frothing.
Cold Pressed oil is extracted from nuts and seeds at temperatures not exceeding 50 degrees Celsius. There is no addition of any solvent to increase the Oil production or any other artificial methods. Due to lower temperature of extraction, Cold Pressed Oils are rich in nutrients, flavour and aroma. On the contrary, during the production of Refined Oils, excessive heat and chemical solvents are used which enhance the production. However, in the process the refined oils lose the nutritional values.
Puvi Groundnut Oil can be used for Grilling, Deep Frying and Sauteing.
Yes. As Puvi Cold Pressed Groundnut Oil is extracted without use of excessive heat or chemical processes, it is rich in nutrients. On the other hand, the process of refining removes various nutrients of the oil. Refining also alters the molecular structure of oils which increases the unhealthy Trans Fats in the refined oil.
Puvi Cold Pressed Oils are extracted from superior quality groundnuts that are full-grained and not malformed. As the oil is extracted using the Cold Pressing methods, the amount of oil extracted is substantially low compared to the refined oils that are extracted using high temperatures. Maintenance of the superior quality of oils increases the cost of production which makes Puvi Cold Pressed Oils a bit high priced than the unhealthy refined oils.
At the time of cold pressing, little bit of water is added to the seeds to keep the temperature low so that the nutritional value, flavour and aroma of the oil is retained. This caused the oil to froth, when heated. To reduce the froth try adding a little bit of Tamarind while heating the oil. Once the oil is heated, remove the tamarind and continue with your cooking as usual.
Litre is a measure of volume while Kg is the measurement of weight. And, depending on the density of the liquid the amount of litres in 1 Kg differs from one to another. For example, while 1-litre Groundnut oil weighs approx. 900gm, 1-litre water weighs equal to 1 Kg of water.
