How to Establish Rice Bran Oil Extraction Project?
Rice is a popular food item throughout the world. A by-product that comes out of rice cultivation is the rice bran oil, which is basically the oil extracted from the germ and the husk of rice kernels and is famous throughout the world, particularly in Asian countries. The characteristic features of rice bran oil are mainly the high smoke point of about 232-degree Celsius and the mild flavor imparted by it when used as a cooking oil, mainly in deep frying dishes. Therefore, investment on rice bran oil production would be a wise decision. But, how to start the rice bran oil production? Establishing a rice bran oil extraction plant helps quickly enter the rice bran oil industry. Here, we simply introduce the main ideas and overall cost about how to establish the rice bran oil extraction plant.
Step 1: Choose Right Rice Bran Oil Extraction Process & Method
As for rice bran oil production, the first step to establish an efficient extraction project is to decide rice bran oil extraction technology and rice bran oil production process based on the planning capacity and investment budget. ABC Machinery patented Sub-critical Low Temperature Solvent Extraction Method is the latest advanced oil extraction technology that is extremely suitable for rice bran oil extraction. Different from traditional solvent extraction (hexane), it uses subcritical solvents, including butane, propane, and dimethyl ether, to separate oils from the rice bran. Why choose these solvents instead of hexane? Below research carried out by Henan University of Technology would tell the answer.
Comparison of the Active Ingredients within Rice Bran Oil by Hexane and Subcritical Solvents
|Solvents for Rice Bran Oil||Vitamin E (mg/100g)||Oryzanol (%)||Sterol (mg/g)|
Above research data have clearly proven the advantages to extract rice bran oil by subcritical solvents than traditional hexane.
- The oryzanol contents by subcritical solvents is higher than that of hexane, up to 12.7%.
- The plant sterol contents by subcritical solvents is higher than that of hexane, up to 16.9%.
- The Vitamin E contents by subcritical solvents is higher than that of hexane, up to 65.8%.
- The color of crude rice bran oil by subcritical solvents is brighter than that of hexane, please check the right picture.
- The oil meal is free from high temperature, which perfectly protect the protein within it from damages. (You may also interested in Rice Bran Protein Extracting Machine)
In conclusion, compared with traditional hexane solvent extraction method, the subcritical low temperature solvent extraction technology is more suitable for rice bran oil production. So, how about the rice bran oil extraction process by subcritical low temperature extraction method.

Step 2: Find out Optimal Rice Bran Oil Extraction Plant Site
The next step to set up rice bran oil extraction plant is to choose the plant site. For rice bran oil extraction plant, there are several selection principles that are worthy to note.
Transportation Cost - the ideal rice bran oil extraction plant site should be selected at the center or near the plantation area of rice.
Delivery Cost - the product depends on the distance between the site and the nearest main road.
Water Supply - There should be plenty of water near the plant area.
Geographical Conditions - undulating, the area that requires excavation to fill the pile is not suitable for construction.
Based on different environment, there may have different factors should be taken into consideration. If you are not sure whether the site your selected is suitable or not, you can just email us for more professional advaices!

Rice Bran Oil Benefits
The Rice Bran Oil market is mainly spread into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa. The rapidly growing food and beverage industry accounts for a high revenue share for the vegetable oil. It has also been segmented into the categories of pharmaceuticals, supplements and cosmetics, which still promises a growth. The availability in tonnes of quantities of the raw materials in countries like India, China, etc, make it a major product for export.
Thus we can conclude that Rice Bran Oil is probably the healthiest vegetable oil available in the market and its benefits are beyond doubt, scientifically proven facts. Apart from this, rice bran oil also allows the food item to absorb only minimal proportions of it and thus help them retain their original taste. It is used in the most famous cuisines in China and majority of popular Asian restaurants due to its flavour-imparting properties. The benefits of rice bran oil is as followings.
- It has an equal balance of saturated fats, monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. The property of the oil being free of trans-fat is what makes it even more desirable to the health-caution population.
- It improves serum cholesterol levels, thereby reducing the amount of cholesterol in the body. This fact has also been validated by the WHO.
- A very high concentration of Vitamin E, which is responsible for improved vision and skin quality.
- The anti-inflammatory properties of the oil reduce hot flashes and other irritating problems of menopause.
- Healthy anti-oxidants such as oryzanol, are present in the oil, thereby reducing chances of developing various types of cancerous cells in the body.
