Exploring Different Cooking Oil Processing Methods:

  • Cold-pressed edible oils are sought after for their perceived nutritional benefits. Small-scale pressing methods result in higher-oil content in the oil meal compared to commercial processing. Pressed oils are desirable at temperatures below 49°C (120°F) to preserve nutritional properties and reduce phosphorous levels for engine fuel use.

  • Store-bought edible oils, known as RBD oils, undergo refining, bleaching, and deodorizing processes for consistent taste, color, and stability. They are tasteless, odorless, and colorless. Locally produced cooking oils retain original flavors and aromas, enhancing the taste of dishes.

  • Large-scale cooking oil refining involves neutralization, phospholipid removal, and filtration. Smaller scale oil refining aims to remove hydratable and non-hydratable phospholipids and filter particulates. Acid wash with citric acid precipitates hydratable compounds, and additional refining processes may be used.

  • Bleaching removes minor constituents for color elimination and prolonged shelf life. Bleaching clay, natural or activated, adsorbs undesirable compounds. Deodorizing eliminates components for taste and odorless oil. Small-scale oils may retain flavors, while deodorizing requires additional equipment.

Commercial processing ensures consistent quality, while small-scale methods offer unique flavors. The choice of processing methods depends on market demand and desired qualities.
