At this stage, several operations are performed at once.
Settling, filtration and centrifugation make it possible to clean sunflower oil from mechanical impurities.
In the process of hydration, protein and mucous substances are removed.
At the neutralization stage, free fatty acids, heavy metals and pesticides are removed.
At the next stage, free fatty acids are excreted and the oil is bleached.
Deodorization destroys odorous substances that lead to oxidation.
All these stages of oil purification from undesirable impurities allow to increase its shelf life.
Freezing allows you to clean the oil from waxy turbid substances and give it transparency.
Sunflower oil at our plant goes through all stages of purification.
