Soybean oil production

The production of commercial soybean oil is complicated. The mechanical production of soybean oil with hydraulic presses is not much used because it’s expensive and gives lower yields. Soybean oil is normally produced by extraction with solvents. The production consists of following steps:

Cleaning of soybeans

The soybeans are first cleaned, dried and dehulled prior to oil extraction. The soybean hulls needs to be removed because they absorb oil and give a lower yield. This de-hulling is done by cracking the soybeans and a mechanical separation of the hulls and cracked soybeans. Magnets are used to separate any iron from the soybeans.
The soybeans are also heated to about 75°C to coagulate the soy proteins to make the oil extraction easier.

Extraction of soybean oil

First the soybeans are cut in flakes which are put in a percolation extractors and immerged with a solvent, normally hexane. Counterflow is used as extraction system because it gives the highest yield. After removing the hexane, the extracted flakes only contain about 1% of soybean oil and is used as livestock meal or to produce food products such as soy protein. The hexane is separated from the soybean oil in evaporators. The evaporated hexane is recovered and returned to the extraction process. The hexane free crude soybean oil is then further purified.

Purification of soybean oil

The crude soybean oil still contains many oil-insoluble and oil-soluble impurities that needs to be removed. The oil-insoluble material are removed with filtration and the soluble materials is removed with different processes including degumming (removing of phosphatides), alkali refining (washing with alkaline solution to remove free fatty acids, colorants, insoluble matter and gums) and bleaching (with activated earth or activated carbon to remove colour and other impurities.

Hydrogenation of soybean oil (optional)

This process will increase the stability of the soybean oil and will make it less liquid. However, this process will create more saturated fats and will reduce the favourable unsaturated fats. In addition, transfats are produced which can cause hearth problems. Hydrogenated soybean oil is used in foods that require more solid fat such as margarines.

Hi I am looking for a formula to do the following. determin my loses, as a result of caustic used to neutralise the FFA's. Formula to work out how much caustic I must dose to reduce the FFA's, and what are my loses on the phosphorus. For example if the FFA's was 2,77% on the crude oil, and the P was 170, colour was 4 red on lovibond scale.

Start A Small Scale Soyabeans Processing

Processing soyabeans by chemical extraction is surely a complex and expensive process. Although it is normally designed for large scale operations and meant to extract almost all the oil content in the soyabean seeds, it has some adverse implications as the solvent used which is hexane is a cancer causing element. The use of this process should be discouraged and a more eco friendly method encouraged as the chemical method has the tendency to introduce this cancer causing agent into the food chain. We currently use an efficient and eco friendly method called dry extrusion to process our soyabeans. It is a mechanical method by which an extruder is used to process the soyabeans and later the oil is expelled from the soyabean cake. We can send you a business plan for the establishment of a small scale plant that can process up to 30 metric tons of soyabeans in 24 hours. The total project cost is about $30000.
