Sunflower oil is one of the most used edible oil. Sunflower seeds are agricultured in many countries like Ukraine, Russia, China, Bulgaria, Romania, Tanzania, Turkey, Hungry, France, and Argentina etc.
Sunflower oil is widely used as cooking oil which is extracted by solvent extraction method or screw oil press method from sunflower seed.
Generally, Crude Sunflower oil have some undesirable oil-soluble & oil-insoluble impurities. These impurities are harmful for health & consumption and requires to remove. Sunflower Crude oil mainly contains hydratable & non-hydratable gums, free fatty acids, coloring pigments like Carotenoids, moisture, oxidative component like aldehyde & ketone, metallic element, waxes and other impurities.
Sunflower oil contains high amount of waxes comparatively to other soft oils so dewaxing is required in order to minimize the wax content.
Sunflower oil refining consists of the following sections
Degumming
Neutralisation
Bleaching
Dewaxing
Deodorisation / De-acidification
From all these steps, sunflower oil goes to commercial circulation. Crude, semi-crude and refined, but at the end before consumer use, refining process should have been finished.
The Turquoiise Group is handling trade from Turkey to abroad of various refined or cold press virgin oils. In Turkey, it has contracts or supply options with local producers. So it acts like an agent due to its influential contacts, to provide time efficiency for its customers.
Below typical three sunflower oil specifications shown and those can be supplied. Please apply with detailed specification of your purchase request and let’s negotiate options we provide you.
