Final stage in refining process
Deodorising is the final stage in oil refining. Deodorising removes odoriferous
material, free fatty acids and other undesired minor components to produce a
bland oil with a good shelf life.
Over the latest years, the aim of a state-of-the-art deodorising became:
odour, flavour removal
free fatty acid removal
colour reduction (heat bleaching)
losses in essential fatty acids (EPA/DHA)
creation of transisomerisation (TFA)
breakdown vitam. A+D+E
Organoleptic & Nutritional Value Shelf life
Final customers require a perfect oil with high organoleptic and nutritional
values, even one year after production.
The different stages in deodorising are :
Deodorising / steam stripping
Heat recovery / cooling
Top quality products require optimal conditions at all stages。
Available deodorising technologies
