How to extract soybean oil

Nov. 07, 2023

To extract soybean oil, you can follow these general steps:

  1. Sourcing and cleaning the soybeans: Purchase high-quality soybeans from a trusted source. Ensure that the soybeans are clean and free from impurities or contaminants. Remove any debris or foreign particles by sifting or handpicking.

  2. Preparing the soybeans: If the soybeans are too large, you may need to break them down into smaller pieces. This can be done by cracking them using a mechanical soybean cracker or by grinding them in a blender or food processor. The goal is to increase the surface area of the soybeans to facilitate oil extraction.

  3. Heating and cooking the soybeans: Place the cracked or ground soybeans in a cooking vessel such as a pot or a soybean oil press. Heat the soybeans gradually while stirring continuously to prevent scorching. The cooking process helps to denature the proteins and loosen the oil from the soybean cells.

  4. Pressing the soybeans: There are different types of soybean oil presses available, including mechanical screw presses and hydraulic presses. These presses apply pressure to the heated soybeans to extract the oil. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for your specific oil press.

    • Mechanical screw press: This type of press uses a screw mechanism to compress the soybeans and extract the oil. Place the cooked soybeans in the press and turn the handle or operate the machinery as per the instructions. The oil will be forced out through small openings in the press while the solid residue, known as soybean cake or meal, remains behind.

    • Hydraulic press: Hydraulic presses use hydraulic pressure to extract oil from the soybeans. Place the cooked soybeans in a filter cloth or bag and position it between the press plates. Apply pressure using the hydraulic mechanism, and the oil will be forced out while the solids are retained.

  5. Filtering the oil: Once the oil is extracted, it may contain impurities or sediments. To obtain clean, pure soybean oil, filter it through a fine mesh or cheesecloth to remove any solid particles. This step helps improve the clarity and quality of the oil.

  6. Storing the oil: Transfer the filtered soybean oil into clean, airtight containers such as glass jars or bottles. Store the oil in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight to maintain its freshness and quality.

Note: The process described here provides a general overview of how to press soybean oil. However, commercial-scale oil production may involve additional steps and specialized equipment. Additionally, ensure that you follow safety guidelines and take necessary precautions when working with hot oil and machinery.
