Our parameters and why exactly we chose this set are explained in this section for our Natureland Organics Groundnut oil review.
1. Nutritional Quotient
Following are the sub-parameters-
a. Organic Certifications – Does the brand mention its certifications? How many does it have and which certifications are these?
b. Ingredient List – In addition to groundnuts, what else does the brand add to their organic oil?
c. Extraction Method – Have the peanuts been mechanically pressed, cold-pressed, or wood-pressed for the extraction of oil?
Does the brand shed light on this? How clear and informative is the label?
Fresh and nutty or industrial? Or even worse, rancid?

b. Clarity – Did we observe some floating bits or residue? Or was the oil clear and free of particles?
