Recently, there has been a rapid increase in the demand for high quality edible oils in Nigeria. Edible oils are oils gotten from oilseeds and nuts after oil extraction process by mechanical oil press or solvent extraction machine. Nigeria has several oil crops, the most common of which are palm fruit, palm kernel, soybean, corn, castor bean, sunflower, safflower, sesame, groundnuts, and flax seeds. (Related equipment: Palm Kernel Oil Extraction Machine >>)

Why Should Buy Oil Refining Machine for Cooking Oil Business?

After the oil seeds or nuts pass through oil pressing or oil extraction process, the crude oil obtained usually contains a large number of non-oil impurities. These impurities include moisture, wax, colloids, pigment, free fatty acids, stinking substances, or mechanical impurities. They affect the oil's color, taste, transparency, smell, nutrition, and degree of stability. All these factors make the oils inedible and make them spoil easily when stored. So, the crude oil has to be refined to remove all the impurities present. Edible oil refining process must not damage the neutral oil and natural antioxidants, so that the edible oil produced is of high quality. (Read more: Cotton Seed Cake Manufacturing Process  >>)

The process of refining crude oil into edible oil is very complex. Refining can be referred to as the "deacidification process." Generally, the refining process covers the following crude oil pretreatment, degumming, deacidifying, decoloring, deodorization, degreasing, and dewaxing. However, the process is also customized based on the oil variety and its uses. For instance, soybeans, sesame, and peanuts will undergo only pretreatment and degumming. Cottonseed requires pretreatment, degumming, and deacidifying. Pretreatment, degumming, deacidifying, decoloring, deodorization, and dewaxing are all steps in producing high-quality edible rice bran oil. (Read more: Soybean Oil Manufacturing Plant Cost >>)
