Most of the peanut oil produced in India is used in food. The aflatoxin content of unrefined oil varies from 0.02 to 0.26%. Aflatoxin was absent from the samples of refined and hydrogenated peanut oil examined. Half of the aflatoxin in an unrefined oil disappears after 10 min at frying temp. (150 degree C), but the oil would have to be heated to 250 degree C (above the smoke point) to ensure complete removal. Fried wheat flour foodstuffs absorbed aflatoxin in proportion to their absorbtion of frying oil. The tamarind pulp which is added to control frothing during frying has no effect on the aflatoxin content, but a significant reduction is effected by casein or areca nut powder.
