Palm oil is produced from palm fruit by the process of sterilizing, threshing, digesting, pressing, filtering and drying. All the processing process can be finished by manual or mechanical.

Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from the mesocarp (reddish pulp) of the fruit of the oil palms. Palm oil is one of the few highly saturated vegetable fats and is semisolid at room temperature. Palm oil is a common cooking ingredient in the tropical belt of Africa, Southeast Asia and parts of Brazil. Its use in the commercial food industry in other parts of the world is widespread because of its lower cost and the high oxidative stability (saturation) of the refined product when used for frying.

Usually after pressing, we can get palm oil, but if palm oil is further processed, we can get various palm oil products. First is refining, with degumming, deacidification, decolorization and deodorization processes to produce "refined, bleached and deodorized palm oil" (RBDPO) and free fatty acids. RBDPO is the basic palm oil product sold on the world's commodity markets. Many companies fractionate it further to produce palm oil for cooking oil, or process it into other products. Second is fractionation, with crystallization and separation processes to obtain solid (palm stearin), and liquid (olein) fractions.

Tips: The production of different palm oil products requires different palm oil processing equipment. If you want to know more, welcome to contact Henan Glory Company directly, and their professional engineers will customize a suitable solution for you according to your needs.
