Sunflower oil refining workshop introduction:
The crude vegetable oil from above mentioned two ways of
extracting, oil pressing and/or solvent extraction, will be pumped
oil refinery units to produce cooking oil at various grades.
The main equipment of oil refinery is various kinds of vessels and
tanks carrying on different tasks with additives.
These tasks may include sedimentation/filtering, neutralization
(removing free fatty acid), degumming, decolorization (bleaching),
especially the dewaxing process is necessary, more wax would
destroy the quality of sunflower oil.
By-Products from sunflower seed oil plant
The by-product from the oil press and solvent extraction process is
sunflower seed meal. The meal could be used as animal feed with
machinery, especially for chicken, cow, sheep and fish, or source
material for the other way of extraction. You can get soapstock
refining process. Soapstock is the source material for laundry soap
with soap making machinery and washing detergent.
Good Choice of Sunflower Oil :
Cooking with refined sunflower oil
One of the benefits of sunflower oil is that it is extremely light
in flavor, so the oil doesn't overpower the rest of a dish's
This light flavor is perfect in simple pasta dishes, including
shrimp and broccoli pasta, and pastas using simple garlic or lemon
To make shrimp and broccoli pasta, saute shrimp in a large skillet
using 2 tbsp of sunflower oil. Once the shrimp are cooked, add
steamed broccoli, 3 tbsp. of sunflower oil, salt, pepper and
crushed red pepper flakes. Saute on medium heat for two minutes or
until all ingredients
Frying with refined sunflower oil
Because sunflower oil is low in saturated fat, many use the oil for
frying. Unlike canola oil,which is high in saturated fat, sunflower
composed of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, making it a
much healthier alternative. Use sunflower oil to fry potato skins,
onion rings, chicken or seafood. Use a simple batter made with
flour, egg and water, or bread and cracker crumbs. Heat sunflower
oil in medium pot
or fryer, dip products in and remove once the batter is brown and
crispy. Allow to cool.
