How is Mustard Oil prepared?
Mustard oil is derived from the seeds of the mustard plant. Mustard oil is made either by pressing or grinding the mustard seeds to extract the oil and seed cake that can be used for animal feeds. The oil is extracted in the following steps:
- Mustard Seeds Drying
To begin the process of mustard oil extraction, firstly the mustard seeds are dried in the sun so as to remove any water that could deteriorate the process of oil extraction.
- Mustard Seeds Cleaning
Once the seeds are dried, they are then cleaned so that all the dirt and foreign objects are removed, which ensures pure and high-quality oil.
- Mustard Seeds Heating
After cleaning, the mustard seeds are heated before oil pressing starts. This process increases the quantity of the yield while also increasing the availability of protein in the by-product seed cake that is used for making animal feeds.
- Mustard Oil Extraction
The heated mustard seeds are immediately fed into the mustard oil press machine. During this process, they are crushed and pressed for up to one hour or more depending on the quantity to produce which should be approximately 26 percent oil.
- Mustard Oil Purification
The final step of the extraction process involves filtering the extracted oil to remove any leftover impurities from the oil before it is bottled and stored.
