Oil Neutralization - Edible Oil Refining Process

Oil Neutralization

Oil neutralization is another step in the edible oil refining process. Oil neutralization is also known as deacidification. It neutralizes fatty free acids in the oil using caustic soda, thereby converting the acids into soaps. These soaps are easily removed by decantation or by centrifugal force. Since there are many kinds of oilseeds with differing qualities, KMEC's machinery is equipped with versatile technology for the oil neutralization process.  

Features of Edible Oil Refining Process

  • Technology adaptable to the oil's quality and to processing requirements.
  • Oil loss is reduced to minimum through well-crafted centrifuges.
