Peanut oil, a sweet edible vegetable oil with a strong peanut flavour and aroma, also known as groundnut oil or arachis oil, is derived from peanuts (Arachis hypogea) a low-growing, annual plant that is a member of the family Fabaceae (Leguminosae). It often finds its use in the preparation of Chinese, South Asian and South-east Asian cuisine, both for general cooking and also in the case of roasted oil for added flavour. Peanut oil is commonly used for frying foods due to its high smoke point in comparison to other cooking oils.

The oil also contains some stearic acid, arachidic acid, behenic acid, lignoceric acid and other fatty acids. Vitamin E and sometimes other antioxidants are added to improve the shelf life of the oil.

Cultivation of Peanut Oil

Cultivated peanut (A. hypogaea) arose from a hybrid between two wild species of peanut, thought to be A. duranensis and A. ipaensis. Genetic analysis suggests the hybridization event probably occurred only once and gave rise to A. monticola, a wild form of peanut that occurs in a few restricted locations in northwestern Argentina, and by artificial selection to A. hypogaea. The process of domestication through artificial selection made A. hypogaea dramatically different from its wild relatives. The domesticated plants are bushier and more compact, and have a different pod structure and larger seeds. The initial domestication may have taken place in northwestern Argentina, or in southeastern Bolivia, where the peanut landraces with the most wild-like features are grown today. From this primary center of origin, cultivation spread and formed secondary and tertiary centers of diversity in Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay. Over time, thousands of peanut landraces evolved; these are classified into six botanical varieties and two subspecies.

The oldest known archeological remains of pods have been dated at about 7,600 years old. They were found in Peru, where dry climatic conditions are favorable to the preservation of organic material. Almost certainly, peanut cultivation antedated this at the center of origin where the climate is moister. Many pre-Columbian cultures, such as the Moche, depicted peanuts in their art. Cultivation was well established in Mesoamerica before the Spanish arrived. There, the conquistadors found the tlalcacahuatl (the plant's Nahuatl name, whence Mexican Spanish cacahuate, Castillian Spanish cacahuete, and French cacahuète) being offered for sale in the marketplace of Tenochtitlan.

The peanut was later spread worldwide by European traders, and cultivation is now very widespread in tropical and subtropical regions. In West Africa, it substantially replaced a crop plant from the same family, the Bambara groundnut, whose seed pods also develop underground. In Asia, it became an agricultural mainstay and this region is now the largest producer in the world.

In today’s world, peanut growing is most important in the United States.

Although it was mainly a garden crop for much of the colonial period, it was mostly used as animal feed stock until the 1930s. The US Department of Agriculture initiated a program to encourage agricultural production and human consumption of peanuts in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. George Washington Carver developed hundreds of recipes for peanuts during his tenure in the program.

Shortage of whale oil in the Confederacy made peanut oil an attractive alternative during the American Civil War. The oil had increased use in the United States during World War II, because of war shortages of other oils.

Olive Oil - 5 Oils That Can Easily Substitute It!

Olive oil can reduce your appetite if consumed regularly, reveals a study conducted by the University of Georgia. The study suggests that eating foods high in polyunsaturated fats regularly can have an effect on your hormones, which will result in reduced appetite and olive oil is a known form of polyunsaturated fat. Also, as per another study published in the Journal of Cancer Therapy, recommends cooking vegetables in olive oil will be helpful in reducing the risk of cancer. 

These studies definitely certify that today, olive oil is the king of oils, whether you’re making desserts or frying chicken. And, it has become a staple substitute for butter, ghee and lard, because, in comparison to these fats, olive oil has only about 40 calories per teaspoon. However, there are times when olive oil is either not available or you are not in a position to buy it, then in such a case what other alternatives should you go for? 

Here are a few other oils that are just as healthy:

  1. Canola Oil: Canola oil is produced from the rapeseed plant. This is an extremely versatile oil and can be used for cooking and baking as it has a neutral taste. As compared to olive oil, canola oil has less saturated fat and hence can even be considered the healthier alternative. In fact, canola oil has the lowest level of saturated fats amongst all cooking oils.
  2. Peanut Oil: Peanut oil is another heart-healthy oil that can be used in place of olive oil. This oil has a high smoke point and hence is best suited for frying foods. It also has a longer shelf life as compared to other oils. However, many people are allergic to peanuts and if you have been diagnosed with such an allergy, you should avoid using peanut oil.
  3. Sesame Oil: Sesame oil is very popular in Asian cuisine. It is a great substitute for olive oil when it comes to cooking food on the stovetop. However, this oil has a strong taste and hence should be used sparingly. It is also a little higher in its polyunsaturated fats as compared to olive oil. There are two types of sesame oil; dark sesame oil and light sesame oil. The former is ideal for seasoning food while the latter may be used to fry foods.
  4. Avocado oil: Avocado oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Thus, making it a heart-friendly oil that helps lower bad cholesterol level and maintains good cholesterol level. Avocado oil can be used to cook food or can be used as a dressing. This oil has a mild taste that enhances the overall flavor of the dish.
  5. Coconut oil: Coconut oil is another heart-healthy oil. This oil is rich in lauric acid; a type of saturated fat. It helps in lowering the level of cholesterol and can prevent heart diseases. Coconut oil can be used to fry foods as well as to bake foods. It has a slight sweetness in its taste and if you are very health conscious, you can opt for virgin coconut oil.

Diet For Diabetic Nephropathy Patient

Diabetic nephropathy is a serious kidney-related complication of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. It is also called diabetic kidney disease. Up to 40 percent of people with diabetes eventually develop kidney disease.

Diabetic nephropathy affects the ability of your kidneys to do their usual work of removing waste products and extra fluid from your body. The best way to prevent or delay diabetic nephropathy is by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and treating your diabetes and high blood pressure.

Choose high-fiber and slow-release carbohydrates. Carbohydrates have a big impact on blood sugar levels. High-fiber and slow-release carbohydrates are digested more slowly, thus preventing your body from producing too much insulin. They also provide lasting energy and help you stay full longer. You can try brown rice, sweet potatoes, cauliflower mash, leaf greens, high-fiber breakfast cereal, etc.

  • Eat a healthful type of protein at most meals, such as fish, lean meat, skinless chicken. They are high quality protein which produce less wastes and will not increase the burden on kidneys.
  • Lessen the intake of sodium properly. Too much sodium will cause swelling and high blood pressure.
  • Take vegetables and fruits with high vitamins. They can boost immune system and help you fight with various disease.
  • Diet plays an important role in treating disease, but it can not take the place of medication.

Patients with diabetic nephropathy often experience proteinuria and swelling and some may also have combined with high blood pressure. As for the patients, proper dietary plan is very essential in protecting their kidneys and slowing down kidney condition aggravation.

Dietary plan in diabetic nephropathy mainly include the follows:

  • Take low protein food, but they can take adequate fish, lean meat, egg white or chicken to replenish the lost protein. These foods contain high quality protein which produce little wastes.
  • Avoid high-potassium foods, like low sodium salt, sauce without salt, pickles, processed cans, ginseng powder, chicken powder, strong tea etc.
  • Avoid high uric-acid food, like animal giblets, seafood, dried fish, beans etc.
  • ﹡Foods that contain high amount of energy but low protein should be chosen, like potato, sweet potato and pumpkin should be considered.
  • Low lipid consumptions. Olive oil and peanut oil have abundant monounsaturated fatty acids, which are good for human beings.
  • In end-stage kidney disease, as kidneys fail to excrete potassium, and sodium. Foods like spinach, tomato, kelp, banana and peach should be limited.
  • If diabetic nephropathy patients have high blood pressure and swelling symptoms, they also need to limit salt intake. Foods rich in salt include pickles, salted eggs, salted vegetables, tomato sauce, barbecue, bacon and various seasons. Besides, fluids intake is also necessary to prevent the aggravation of swelling symptoms.
  • Limit sugar intake, which need patients to keep far away from foods with high sugar like chocolate, orange juice, coconut, brown sugar and so on.

The above is the general principles that diabetic nephropathy patients need to follow. Due to different illness condition, exact dietary principles for diabetic nephropathy patients may vary from one to one.

Mustard Vs Vegetable Oil - Which One Should You Really Use?

Vegetable Oils are the oils that are obtained from various plants and their sources. They comprise of different types of oils which are procured from sources like seeds, herbs, nuts, legumes and fruits. Common examples of vegetable oils are olive oil, soybean oil, corn oil, safflower oil and peanut oil.

Mustard oil is also, in fact, a vegetable oil as is extracted from the seeds of the mustard. Mustard oil is used a lot in traditional cooking. However, today, most people like to use new varieties of vegetable oils. But how healthy is this trend?

Mustard oil is a vegetable oil obtained from mustard seeds. It is dark yellow in colour and has a pungent odour. Its main benefits are

  1. Mustard oil contains good unsaturated fats. These fats don't get deposited in your blood vessels.
  2. It contains Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids that reduce blood cholesterol levels.
  3. Mustard oil also contains ‘Glucosinolate’, a substance that has antimicrobial properties. Thus, the oil is effective against infections.
  4. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, mustard oil is very good for people with irritable bowel syndrome as it helps reduce inflammation along the lining of your stomach.

Vegetable oils

  1. In comparison to mustard, vegetable oils are tasteless and are known to adapt to the food’s natural taste, due to which consumers often pick them up over mustard.
  2. Almost all vegetable oils are cholesterol-free, but they do contain some saturated and unsaturated fats and saturated fats, as we know, do play a role in blood cholesterol level.
  3. Each one of the vegetable oil such as olive, sunflower and groundnut have some benefits and negatives. Let’s take a quick look at the oil profiles of these three common vegetable oils before you select the oil for cooking in your kitchen.

Oil profile

  1. Groundnut: It is high in MUFA or monounsaturated fats and PUFA or polyunsaturated fats, and both of these help in lowering low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or bad cholesterol. Groundnut is also a good source of vitamin E, an antioxidant with anti-cancer properties and skin benefits.
  2. Sunflower: What’s perhaps the best thing about this oil is its light flavor that doesn’t overpower other ingredients. It also contains a protein that helps regulate blood glucose levels.
  3. Olive: It’s high in MUFA, so it’s linked to lower risk of heart disease and breast cancer. Extra virgin oil is rich in natural plant antioxidants and these can protect against damaging free radicals. The oil is reasonably high in saturated fats, so it should be used sparingly.

You can choose the oil for yourself keeping the above guidelines in mind, as no oil is best for all. You need to match the oil with your cooking style and health needs to get the best out of it. We recommend that you mix two oils and cook. This way you get the best of the best.
