Edible Oil also known as Cooking Oil or Vegetable Oil comes from plant, various vegetables, animal, or synthetic sources. It is also used in food preparation and flavoring not including heat, such as salad dressing and bread dips. However we are primarily focused on plant based Edible Oil.
Most Edible Oils are typically in a liquid form at room temperature, although there are some oils that contains saturated fat, such as coconut oil, palm oil as well as there are some animal based oils like butter and lard.
People in many regions around the world began to process plant based vegetable oils thousands of years ago, utilizing whatever food stuffs they had on hand to obtain oils for a variety of cooking purposes. Early peoples learned to use the sun, a fire, or an oven to heat oily plant products until the plants exuded oil that could then be collected.
Using a spherical or conical stone mortar and pestle, vertical or horizontal millstones, or simply their feet, people began to crush from various seeds or vegetable to increase its available surface area. The ground material would subsequently be placed in sieves such as shallow, flat wicker baskets that were stacked. The matter was then pressed using lever or wedge presses. The Greeks, Indians, and Romans improved this process by introducing cattle based edge runners to grind and a winch or screw to operate a lever press. Their method was used throughout the Middle Ages.
Cooking oil manufacturing involves cleaning the seeds, grinding them, pressing, and extracting the oil from them. In extracting, a volatile hydrocarbon such as hexane is used as a solvent. After extracting, the oil is refined, mixed with an alkaline substance, and washed in a centrifuge. Further washing and refining follows, and then the oil is filtered and/or distilled. It is then ready for packaging. Over time extracting vegetable oils has become more and more efficient.
Universally, following methods are used to extract oil from fruits, seeds, nuts or plants:
Chemical solvent extraction, most commonly using hexane.
Rural or home-based vegetable oil production.
The average bottle of cooking oil contains vegetable oil, with no additives, preservatives, or special flavorings. The oil comes from various parts of plants, in most cases from what are commonly called seeds, which includes sunflower, palm kernel, safflower, cotton, sesame, and grapeseed oils and nuts such as peanut, soybean, almond, and walnut oils. A few special cases involve merely squeezing the oil from the flesh of the fruit of the plant. For example, coconut oil comes from the coconut's white meat, palm oil from the pulp of the palm fruit, and olive oil from the flesh of fresh olives. Typically, corn oil is derived from the germ (embryo) of the kernel.
