Modern day cooking oil producing plant use chemical extraction methods as this process yields more oil. Solvents are added to the crushed seeds to aid in the extraction process and are then removed from the extracted oil. The solvents are often reused numerous times in the oil production process. The remaining seed cake is used as fertilisers or animal feed.

Refined cooking oil production now requires the oil to be treated to remove the solvents and the taste as well as the colour and odour remaining in the oil.

The soap layer is removed through centrifuge and the remaining oil is washed. The oil is bleached to remove any traces of colour.
