Default Peanut oil

I just bought peanut oil to put in my deep fryer and now i dont know if i can use it. It says there are no carbs in it at all. But i didnt see it anywhere on foods we can eat.

Fats and Oils
Many fats, especially certain oils, are essential to good nutrition. Olive oil is particularly valuable. All other vegetable oils are allowed, the best being canola, walnut, soybean, grapeseed, sesame, sunflower and safflower oils, especially if they are labeled "cold-pressed" or "expeller-pressed." Do not cook polyunsaturated oils, such as corn, soybean and sunflower oil, at high temperatures or allow to brown or smoke.
Though peanut oil is not mentioned, I assume it would be allowed alongside soybean oil as they are both legumes but dont know if it is one of those oils you have to watch at high temperatures.
Here is a link to some info on peanut oil

Don't quote me on this, but I think peanut oil is fine to use at high temperatures. It's used in a lot of Chinese cooking.

As far as carbs go, it doesn't have any.

Use Coconut oil. It's the best and revs up your metabolism accoring to many senior members here. I just recently started using it but am using it more and more and getting tips from others on how to eat more of it.

Coconut oil doesn't have any coconut taste what so ever. You use it just like you would olive oil or any other type of vegtable oil.

The ONLY store that I've ever seen coconut oil at, along with many forum members is Super Walmart, believe it or not. Otherwise you can order it online.

I hope you find it...it's wonderful!
