What is NUT OILS?

Include many varieties, the more important of which are described under their several names. Palm kernels contain about 50 per cent, by weight of a white, solid fat, which, after refining, is used Li making margarine, and the residual cake or meal resulting from the crushing and extraction of the oil is a serviceable cattle tood. Groundnuts or earthnuts contain from about 35 to 40 per cent, of a liquid, palatable oil, and, when freed from the. husks, about 45 per cent, of the oil. The residual cake is highly albuminous, that from the decorticated seed sometimes testing above 50 per cent., and is much relished by cattle. Hazel nuts yield 60 per cent, of a pale yellow oil, and walnut oil from the kernel of Juglans regia, is a quickdrying oil, which is green when freshly extracted; it turns yellow on keeping, is inodorous, and used in painting. Walnuts yield as much as from 50 to 65 per cent, of this oil, which forms a soft soap when saponified with potash. Almond nuts contain about 55 per cent, fat; beech nuts, 57 per cent.; brazil nuts, 66 per cent.; cocoanuts, from 50 to 55 per cent. filberts, 65 per cent.; hickory nuts, 67 per cent.; peanuts, 39 per cent.; pistachio nuts, 51 per cent.; and pecan nuts, 70 per cent. “Nut Oil” farachis oil, peanut or groundnut oil is now largely produced in both China and Japan, also in Senegal, and should not be confounded with true walnut oil, which was wont to be described as “nut oil.”
