The below production of meal from oilseeds shows various operations common to the processing of many oilseeds. The process begins with crushing and heating up the seeds then pressing them using the bleaching earth. The extracted crude oil is then processed ahead. Meanwhile, the solvent extraction from winterization from degumming helps remove the solvent by stripping, resulting in the degumming of crude oil. It should be noted here that oilseed is cleaned to remove trash, dirt, sand, and metal pieces. The oilseed is then weighed for accurate control of oil and cake yield. The shell or seed coat is often removed from the oilseed kernel. This process is known as decortication and, as well as raising the oil content of the raw material entering the extraction machinery. It ensures a higher protein content in the oil cake.
