Sesame Oil Manufacturing Process

manufacturing process of sesame oil


1. Sesame Seed Cleaning:
Once the sesame seeds have been received in the factory, they are washed using the seed cleaning equipment to remove the unwanted products. Cleaning the seeds will help out in sorting out the good seeds and cleaning them to remove dust, foreign matter, and stones.

2. Sesame Seed Dry Roasting:
The Sesame seeds are the dried by being roasted. Afterwards, they are cooked ready for crushing. Heating is done to remove excess water from the seeds after the cleaning process.

3. Sesame Seed Pressing Process:
Once the seeds have been dried completely, they are ready for crushing or pressing by sesame oil expelelr press. After the oil has been pressed from the seeds, the oil is then given some time to settle.

4. Crude Sesame Oil Filtration
Once the oil has settled after pressing, there is the presence of some oil cakes that are mixed up with the oil. Filtration is done to separate the seeds from the oil. This will make the refining level easier to extract the final oil.

5. Sesame Oil Refining:
After filtration, it doesn't mean that the oil is ready for packing. There is the last and final filtration before the oil is packed. The filtration ensures that the oil is fully pure and that it does not have any oil cakes in it. Once the oil has settled and filtered, it is now ready for packing.

6. Sesame Oil Packing:
Once the oil has passed through all these processes, they are packed into either drums or cantor bottle by professional oil filling line and ready to take it to the market for sale. They are also transported to other companies that use the oil to manufacture other products.
