How to Make Sunflower Oil?

Sunflower oil is a kind of high-quality edible oil. it is rich essential fatty acids for the human body, unsaturated fatty acids up to 85 to 90 percent, and the content of linoleic acid is 65%, which has high nutritional value. but sunflower oil contains a small amount of wax (usually 0.06% to 0.10% of crude oil). The presence of wax not only affects the transparency and taste of sunflower oil, but also smokes and produces a choking smell during cooking, which affects human health. When the temperature is higher than 40℃, the wax in sunflower oil has weak polarity and dissolves in sunflower oil. As the temperature drops, especially when the temperature is lower than 30°C, the wax crystallizes and forms relatively stable crystals. After a period of time at this low temperature, the wax crystals condense into larger grains. As the storage time increases, the wax crystal grains gradually increase and become a suspension. at this time, the oil becomes suspension. The transparency of sunflower oil decreases. The global consumption of sunflower oil is ranked 4th after palm oil, soybean oil and rapeseed oil. Sunflower oil is mainly used in food and cosmetic sector. So, how to turn the sunflower seeds into sunflower oil or cooking sunflower oil? One of the most commonly used method for sunflower oil making is mechanical pressing with screw oil press machine. This methods is relatively simple, features low cost and doesn't require chemical solvents, so it is widely adopted by many medium and small scale cooking oil production line. According to the oil production process, sunflower oil processing equipment including cleaning sieve, destoning machine, flaker, cooker, oil filter machine, oil filter machine, edible oil refining machine and more.

Dewaxing process
There are many methods for dewaxing oil. At present, the most commonly used is the dewaxing method, that is, freezing crystallization and separation.
1. Dewaxing process
Oil to be dewaxed → Cooling and Crystallization → Maturation → Filtration(Wax paste) → Finished oil
2.Main equipment for dewaxing process
The dewaxing equipment mainly includes refrigeration units, heat exchanger, crystallizing and maturing tanks, and horizontal leaf filter.

Sunflower Oil Dewaxing

The extracted sunflower oil should be processed further to make it an edible product. Edible oils are refined to improve their flavor, odor, color and stability. The refining process will remove contaminants such as phosphatides, free fatty acids and pro-oxidants. Apart from the normal refining steps, some oils and fats need further processing. They are winterized and modified to alter their melting characteristics.

Sunflower Oil presents an un-pleasant turbidity at low temperature. This can be removed by eliminating components like waxes which solidify at low temperature through the process known as Dewaxing. The process of dewaxing is carried out especially for Sunflower Oil to remove those waxes.

The by-products of dewaxing can be further processed to create value-added products or reduce costs.

Ways To Make Your Own Sunflower Oil

Typically, most salad and cooking oils you purchase from your local grocery stores are extracted using solvents or pressure, or both. However, if you want to make your own sunflower at home, these solvents are best avoided.

Instead, consider investing in a high-quality oil press to have a more wholesome fresher end product. So, on that listed below are a few steps to make your own sunflower oil the natural way!

Step 1: Clean The Sunflower Oil And Blend Them

To make your own sunflower oil, you must first clean the sunflower seeds and blend them in a blender. After blending the seeds into a thick paste, add two tablespoons of water and continue blending for a couple of minutes. When you see a layer of oil form on the top of the mixture, stop blending.

Step 2: Collect The Oil In A Bowl

The next step is to take out the paste and residual oil from the blender and transfer it into a large bowl. Then, use your hands to squeeze the oil from the paste into a separate bowl. Continue this step until all of the oil is extracted from the paste.

Step 3: Sift The Oil

The last step involved in the oil-making process is to filter it with a fine sift to remove any large sediments. You can heat the oil in your microwave or in a saucepan to have a clear-looking oil. Lastly, store your homemade sunflower oil into a mason jar or oil bottle, and you're done!

Wrapping Up

Congratulation! You've now learned how to make your own sunflower oil at home. Of course, you won't get the results you're after if you haven't made any oil at home before. However, using homemade sunflower oil, whether for cooking or dressing salads, is still better than consuming packaged oil. So, go ahead and make some today!
