Moringa oil production, the process!

Moringa oil is extracted from the moringa oleifera plant, and can be produced in different ways. For pharmaceutical purposes, moringa seeds are mechanically pressed in a cold-pressing process. For this, the oil is extracted from whole mature moringa seeds with a press, the degree of extraction being dependent on the capacity of the press and the inlet temperature of the seed. In the press type, the oil reaches a temperature of between 30 to 40 °C. The cloudy oil is filtered to remove fine particles. Additional levels of purification can be efficiently included. As an alternative purification system, the oil is left in storage long enough for the solids to settle and then removed by decanting. For technical reasons, on the other hand, hot pressing, which does not exceed 55°C, is used. For this purpose, the moringa seeds are first preheated very gently in a special heat conditioner and then pressed with a screw press. This makes it possible to maximise the degree of extraction without altering the quality of the oil or cake resulting from the process. Press cakes can also increase the oil yield by undergoing solvent extraction, if required by the customer. The resulting oil is pure and, depending on the use, may need to undergo a specific further refining process or step.

Moringa oil – shelf life & properties

Depending on the production method, cold-pressed in-shell moringa oil is pale yellow or greenish in colour and has a mild, pleasant smell, a light perfumed odour and is described as herbaceous-floral. It is rich in oleic acid (a monounsaturated fatty acid), linoleic acid (a polyunsaturated fatty acid), antioxidants such as vitamin E, and beneficial phytochemicals such as isothiocyanates.

Cold-pressed oil contains high levels of β-sitosterol (up to 50.07%), stigmasterol (up to 17.27%) and campesterol (up to 15.13%). Moringa oil has a flash point of around 250°C and a boiling point of over 225°C, which makes it difficult to ignite. The solidification point is around -25°C and the melting point is between 18.9°C and 19°C.

The shelf life of moringa oil can vary depending on several factors, such as the quality of the oil, the way it is processed and stored. However, under the right conditions, moringa oil usually has a relatively long shelf life of 1-2 years. To prolong shelf life, it should be stored in a cool, dark, dry place, away from direct sunlight and excessive heat. A cool, dark place is ideal to prevent oxidation. Store in an opaque, airtight container to protect from light and air.
