But before you can produce hydrotreated vegetable oil as an end product, first you need to understand the six-step refining process, which consists of:
|1||Crude oil filtration||to remove solids and strains following |
seed crushing and plastics from animal fat and frying oils
|2||Dewaxing||to remove waxes|
|3||Degumming||to remove phospholipids|
|4||Neutralising||to remove free fatty acids|
|5||Bleaching||to remove colour|
|6||Deodorisation ||to remove odour|
