  • Publication number: 20100160658
    Abstract: Improved system and process for separating the initial portion of liquid solvent from spent oleaginous material after the solvent extraction process and prior to the thermal desolventizing process. Solvent laden solids departing the solvent extraction process are subjected to mechanical pressure to squeeze a portion of the liquid solvent through a perforated surface, into a collection hopper. This liquid solvent is subsequently recycled back to the solvent extraction process for liquid clarification and additional oil recovery.

  • Patent number: 7638643
    Abstract: It is intended to easily separate saponins from isoflavones extracted from starting soybeans thereby giving highly pure saponins at a high yield on an industrial scale. Saponins can be highly efficiently separated from isoflavones by performing multistage extraction under mild conditions such that malonyl isoflavone glycoside, from among isoflavones contained in the starting soybeans, is not converted into isoflavone glycoside, acetyl isoflavone glycoside or isoflavone aglycon. Thus, highly pure saponins can be obtained at a high yield on an industrial scale.

  • Patent number: 6579996
    Abstract: A method for removing free fatty acids from fats or oils of biological origin or their steam distillates by extracting the free fatty acids with a mixture of basic organic nitrogen compounds and water as an extraction medium at a temperature below the boiling point of the organic nitrogen compounds. The content of the basic organic nitrogen compounds in the extraction medium is 20-30% by weight. In this manner, the formation of a viscous soapstock which is difficult to remove is prevented. The boiling point of the basic organic nitrogen compounds used is the same as or above boiling point of water and below the boiling point of the fatty acids to be extracted in order to enable simple recovery of the extraction medium.

  • Patent number: 6201142
    Abstract: An efficient process for recovering high quality corn oil from corn germ. The process involves pre-treating corn germ by Rehydration, conditioning and, optionally flaking. This is followed by extrusion, which is the core operation in the preparation of corn germ for corn oil recovery. Water is provided up front in the process, prior to extrusion. Providing water up front reduces generation of fines and improves friction within the extruder, thereby allowing the material to move along and improving overall efficiency and streamlining of the process. The oil released from corn germ by this process is of high quality and high yield.

  • Patent number: 6103918
    Abstract: A process of producing glyceride oil having a very low content of non-hydratable phosphatides from fatty seeds and fruits is disclosed. In the process, the fatty material is instantaneously and for a very short time exposed to a high temperature at a controlled water content. The glyceride oil extracted from the thermally treated material has after water-degumming the same low contents of phosphorus, iron, calcium and magnesium as can be achieved by treatment with strong acid and alkali (superdegumming) of a conventionally produced glyceride oil.

  • Patent number: 5296621
    Abstract: The invention provides a process for the isolation of hydroxy fatty acid derivatives from Convolvulaceae plants like Ipomoea batatas and Ipomoea orizabensis by extracting parts of said plants like leaves, stems, seeds and in particular roots and tubers thereof, with an organic solvent, removing the solvent for at least the main part from the extract, dispersing the obtained residue into water, subjecting the obtained dispersion to a single hydrolysis step and recovering the released hydroxy fatty acids, like 11-hydroxy palmitic acid and 3,11-hydroxy myristic acid from the aqueous dispersion by means of an extraction agent. The obtained hydroxy fatty acid may be used in the synthesis of specific organic compounds like lactones or in the preparation of products having purgative properties and of thickeners for lubricating greases respectively.

  • Patent number: 5278325
    Abstract: A vegetable oil process and assembly is disclosed for extracting oil from an oil bearing material such as soybean, corn and the like. The process comprises adding at least one reagent to the oil bearing material to form a slurry mixture. The slurry is heated at a preselected temperature for a preselected period of time preferably under a partial vacuum. This processing reduces the phospholipid and trace metal content in the oil extracted from the oil heating material. The oil product produced is light in color, shows no turbidity and exhibits minimal amount of phosphorus, calcium, magnesium and iron. The oil is ready for physical refining.
