Edible oil (also known as cooking oil, a type of vegetable oil) is a plant or animal liquid fat used in frying, baking, and other types of cooking. Such oils have been part of human culture for millennia.

Oil allows higher cooking temperatures than water, making cooking faster and more flavorful, while likewise distributing heat, reducing burning and uneven cooking. It sometimes imparts its own flavor. Oil is also used in food preparation and flavoring not involving heat, such as salad dressings and bread dips.

In 2021/22, vegetable oil production amounted to some 208.8 million metric tons worldwide and was forecast to increase to over 217 million metric tons in the 2022/23 marketing year.

There are a wide variety of edible oils from plant sources such as Palm Oil, Avocado Oil, Peanut Oil/Groundnut Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Safflower Oil, Sesame Oil, Sunflower Oil, Olive Oil, Mustard Oil, Marula Oil, Avocado Oil, etc.

Filtration is an essential process in the purification of edible oil/vegetable oil and ensures that all undesirable particles are removed whilst the quality of the oil is maintained.

Depending on the type of oil and final purpose, the oil is processed in a sequence of process steps which can be divided as follows:

  • Particulates and foots removal
  • Microbial stabilization
  • Clarification prior to filling
  • Process water
  • vent and steam filtration

This optimized filtration process provides robust and highly reproducible product filtration protection. Contaminants are effectively removed. And, operating at ambient temperature, it protects flavor and maximizes shelf life.
