Groundnut Oil Processing

                                                        

Groundnut oil, also known as peanut oil, is a mild tasting vegetable oil expressed from groundnut kernels. Groundnut oil is widely used in cooking, including frying, basting, and the manufacturing of margarine’s  and  shortenings.
Groundnut oil production is a financially profitable venture with huge export potential. You can start and run a groundnut oil processing operation on a small  and medium scale basis according to the desired output and project cost.
Selecting the right location for your factory operation is an important aspect. Major required utilities are water and electricity. Also, the easy availability of transport and labor is important. The basic machines and equipment required are as follows:
  • Pre – cleaner for cleaning the oil seeds.
  • Cans and trays for handling oil seeds.
  • Solar dryer.
  • Oil Extractor Machine.
  • Mechanical Oil Expeller.
  • Filter Press.
  • Oil filling machine.
  • Steel drums for storing edible oil.
  • Bottle filling machine.
  • Bottle capping cum sealing machine.
                                                                 
 The principal raw material required for the production of groundnut oil is groundnut seed. The seed will give approximately 44 – 50% oil and 50 – 55% meal. Other required raw materials include caustic soda, bleaching earth and packaging consumables. Edible oil technology is divided into two groups. These are mechanical pressing and solvent extraction. For oil-seeds with high oil content such as groundnuts, you will need to apply first mechanical pressing.
Groundnut oil is cherished by consumers for its unique flavor and abundance of the powerful antioxidant tocopherol (vitamin E). It has a high smoke point of 229°C making it ideal for frying purposes. Pure groundnut oil can be refined to enhance its taste, smell, color, and oxidative stability by de-gumming, neutralization, bleaching’s and deodorization.
