The fatty oil and therein mainly the petroselinic acid can be obtained by extraction…

  • Wheat Germ

    Wheat Germ

    WHEAT GERM OIL Oil production Wheat germ oil usually occurs as a by-product in wheat flour production. Today, modern milling processes for obtaining flour and bran mechanically separate the germ buds, relatively fatty parts of the wheat grains. For wheat germ oil production, a cold-pressing with a screw press is used, or also an extraction…

  • Sesame oil

    Sesame oil

    SESAME OIL Oil production The aromatic sesame oil is taken from mature sesame seeds through cold-pressing or through warm-pressing, extraction, refinement and filtration. The type of production produces two distinct types of sesame oil: oil from unroasted seeds is known as light sesame oil, and oil from roasted seeds is known as dark sesame oil.…

  • Castor

    Castor

    CASTOR BEAN OIL Oil production From the shelled seeds of the Ricinus communis L. (castor beans), which have an oil content of 40-50%, castor oil can be obtained using a mechanical, cold-press process. The resulting oil must subsequently undergo a refining process, however, to prevent the toxic ricin from ending up in the oil. Although the quality…

  • Coconut

    Coconut

    Coconut oil Oil production Due to its high percentage of saturated fatty acids (approx. 90%), coconut oil is solid at room temperature, which is why it is also called coconut fat. Nevertheless, since it has a low melting point, it becomes liquid around 23°C. Coconut oil is taken from the copra, the endosperm of the…

  • Karite nut / Shea

    Karite nut / Shea

    SHEA BUTTER – KARITE NUT Butter Production The shea butter is taken from the fatty karité nut of the (shea) tree.

After a final…

  • Walnut

    Walnut

    WALNUT OIL Oil production Walnut oil is taken from walnut kernels that have a fat content over 60% after being dried. The oil can be obtained through cold-pressing, hot-pressing, or chemical extraction. However, cold-pressed and subsequently filtered walnut oil has the best quality. Oils of simple quality (oil from extraction or hot-pressing) are usually also…

  • Grape Seed

    Grape Seed

    GRAPE SEED OIL Oil production Grape seed oil may be obtained both through a hot-pressing and through chemical extraction and refinement. If oil containing numerous valuable contents (such as vitamin E and lecithin) is desired, then the grape seeds should be cold-pressed. In order to reach the seeds, however, the grapes must first be pressed…

  • Sunflower

    Sunflower

    SUNFLOWER SEED OIL Oil production For the production of the oil, the mature sunflower seeds are first fully or partially shelled (aided by a centrifugal peeler), pre-warmed and finally fed into a mechanical press. The cold- or hot-pressing process can follow in one or two stages. The screw press is suitable for a single-stage pressing.…
