"Palm Olein

Palm olein is the liquid fraction obtained by fractionation of palm oil after crystallization at controlled temperatures. The physical characteristics of palm olein differ from those of palm oil. It is fully liquid in warm climate and has a narrow range of glycerides.

In addition to finding uses as in the case of palm oil, palm olein is widely used as a cooking oil. It also blends perfectly with other popular vegetable oils that are traditionally used in many parts of the world ; prompting a nickname 'blending partner' for palm olein. For example, in Japan, refined palm olein is blended with rice bran and in Malaysia, it is blended with groundnut oil.

Like palm oil, palm olein is also widely used as a frying oil and much of its popularity is due to its good resistance to oxidation and formation of breakdown products at frying temperatures and longer shelf life of finished products. In fact, palm olein is considered as the gold standard in frying and is perhaps, on its own, the most widely used frying oil in the world!"

I wasn't sure what groundnuts were so I looked it up and found it on this link:

Sounds to me very much like a peanut, unless perhaps it IS actually a peanut, and they're just not saying that.

Are you allergic to *all* nuts? If so I would avoid this. If not, you'd have to make a decision based on how sensitive you are. Keep in mind that one kind of nut could be cross contaminated by another kind of nut.
