Soybean Oil Extraction and Processing

  • Andrew Proctor

Abstract

Soybeans are the dominant oilseed in both U.S. and world markets. During a typical year soybean production comprises over half the worldwide oilseed production (Anonymous 1995). However, according to Dutton (1981) in the early 1940s, soybean oil was considered a poor quality oil, not suitable for food use, and more appropriate for use in industrial paints. It was first used in margarine in World War II due to the shortages of other fats and oils, but its use was limited to 30% of the product.
