Soybean is valued for its high protein content (38-45%) as well as its oil content (approximately 18-22%).
Soybean oil is a vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of soybean, which has a mild nutty flavor and a better texture. It is one of the most widely consumed cooking oils, constituting about half of worldwide edible vegetable oil production. As a semi-drying oil, processed soybean oil is also used as a base for printing inks and oil paints. Thus soybean oil production line is installed worldwide.
Soybean is a kind of low oil content oilseed compared with other oilseeds such as peanut, sesame, canola, etc. So usually we adopt pretreatment and solvent extraction way to process soybean and get soybean oil, which can reduce residue oil rate and increase oil productivity compared with pressing way. Different oilseeds have different processing technology.
Soybean oil production line includes Soybean Pretreatment Process, Soybean Oil Extracting Process and Soybean Crude Oil Refining Process.
