What is Vegetable Oil Refining?

Crude oil Extracted from oil press expellers or solvent extraction plant inevitably contains impurities.

F.A.), pigment, off-flavor and other impurities in the oil. Vegetableoil refinery is necessary for vegetable oils & fats or animal oils & fats so they can be used for cooking and frying foods.

    Decolorizing /Bleaching:  Remove color pigments contained in oils.
    Deodorizing: Remove disagreeable flavor and odors that are naturally present or created during processing under high temperature.
    Dewaxing (Optional): Oils like sunflower oil or maize germ oil (corn oil) have waxes present in them. At low temperatures these waxes give a hazy appearance to the oil. So in extremely cold areas, dewaxing should take into accout when processing these oil seeds.
