Peanut oil cake is a press cake, the solids remaining after peanuts have been pressed to extract their oil. It may be used to form peanut flour, as it is partially defatted ground peanut meal.

Health considerations

Oil cakes are low in fat relative to the original nut, seed, or legume, while retaining the protein and fiber content as well as many micronutrients. Some fat content from remaining peanut oil is still present. See: Peanuts, Peanut oil.
