Written by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites

Peanut Oil Calories & Fat Content

One Tablespoon contains 119 calories.

It contains high levels of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats which can assist in reducing unhealthy serum cholesterol levels - which in turn, benefits heart health.

Fat Distribution in Peanut Oil Based on 1 Tablespoon

Total fatty acids = 13.5 g
Saturated fat = 2.3 g [one of the unhealthier lipids that should be limited]
Monounsaturated fat = 6.2 g
Polyunsaturated fat = 4.3 g
Cholesterol = 0 mg
Phytosterols = 28 mg's

Phytosterols work to block cholesterol absorption within the body which in turn supports circulatory and heart health.

Smoke Point & Peanut Oil

It has a very high smoke point and is our go-to oil for those rare times when we fry foods. It doesn't smoke-up the kitchen and is a very clean cooking oil.

Another plus is that until olive and a few other oils, it doesn't hold a unique flavor that transfers to the food.
