Soyoil

Refined & Crude 

We supply two kinds of soyoil
  • Crude

  • Refined

 

Crude

Crude Degummed Soybean Oil (CDSO) is pure but inedible soybean oil produced from fair to average quality crude soybeans. The majority of the free fatty acids and gums naturally present in soybeans are removed by hydration and mechanical or physical separation

Refined

Crude oil refined by industrial process to make it edible for human consumption

Oil accounts for 18% to 20% of the weight of soybean seeds, which is low relative to most other oilseed crops, and that is one of the reasons Soyoil is relatively expensive compared to other vegetable oils

Soybean oil is primarily a polyunsaturated oil (61 percent polyunsaturated fat, 24 monounsaturated fat and 15 percent saturated fat). As a bonus, soybean oil contains some omega-3 fats, which are heart-healthy fats often found in salmon and sardines, but are less common in plant-based sources of food

To produce soybean oil, the soybeans are cracked, adjusted for moisture content, heated to between 60 and 88 °C (140–190 °F), rolled into flakes, and solvent-extracted with hexanes. The oil is then refined, blended for different applications, and sometimes hydrogenated. Soybean oils, both liquid and partially hydrogenated are sold as "vegetable oil," or are ingredients in a wide variety of processed foods.

Per 100 g, soybean oil has 16 g of saturated fat, 23 g of monounsaturated fat, and 58 g of polyunsaturated fat. The major unsaturated fatty acids in soybean oil triglycerides are the polyunsaturates alpha-linolenic acid (C-18:3), 7-10%, and linoleic acid (C-18:2), 51%; and the mono-unsaturate oleic acid (C-18:1), 23%. It also contains the saturated fatty acids stearic acid (C-18:0), 4%, and palmitic acid (C-16:0), 10%.

The high-proportion of oxidation-prone polyunsaturated fatty acid is undesirable for some uses, such as cooking oils

 

Sometimes if and when we do not have a certain product available or we do not have enough. In those cases, we will talk to associated farmers/suppliers in order to be able to deliver. Contact us for more details.
