Concentrating lecithin from wet gum during water degumming of vegetable oil.
In degumming of vegetable oil especially soybean oil and rapeseed oil, wet-gum as a by-product used to be a cubersome liability. It's sticky and apt to deteriorate quickly. Some oil mills have to pay for the dumping. Now we can convert this waste into valuable product, concentrated lecithin and its derivatives. Concentrated lecithin can be applied in animal feed industry for multiple purposes. The further purification and concentration can get food grade lecithin for bakery, confection and infant formulas.
The lecithin plant will deepen oil refinery value chain and turn the burden into your treasure. We can provide whole industrial soution.
