Cottonseed: Both mechanical oil pressing and solvent extraction is available for cottonseed oil production. Crude cottonseed oil contains gossypol which is harmful to human body. However, refined cottonseed oil is healthy and edible cooking oil. Refined cotton seed oil contains lot of essential fatty acid. The linoleic acid content is up to 47%~58%, which can resist the rise of blood cholesterol. Cottonseed oil has a reputation of "vascular scavenger". It is an ideal kind of cooking oil. Besides, its price is relatively low, making cottonseed oil an edible vegetable oil with high cost performance.
Soybean: Soybean oil is expelled or extracted from soybean (oil content: 19%). The color is generally dark yellow or faint green. Soybean oil is the typical composition of vegetable oil. The remaining soybean meal of oil pressing plant is widely used as animal feed. In soybean oil processing, the soybeans go through process of cracking, water content adjusting, and flaking, pressing or solvent extracting. Then, the oil is refined and blended for various applications.
Sunflower Seed: It is the fruit of sunflower. The fat contain of sunflower seeds is 30%~45%. Sunflower seed oil is an important kind of senior nutrition cooking oil, featured of golden color. It contains a lot of linoleic acid and other essential unsaturated fatty acid, can promote the regeneration of the cells and reduce the cholesterol in the blood. The sunflower seed consumption rate in many countries is as high as 70%, such as Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea.
