While the extraction rate of the sesame seed oil is up to 45~50%. The oil contains linoleic acid in a large amount. The oil contains sesamol and sesamolin which makes the oil durable.
With the arrival of the sesame seed for oil extraction. The first and foremost thing which is required is cleaning it. Seeds are washed using seed cleansing equipment to get over the unwanted products. It will help in sorting out the good seeds and the dust, stones, and other pollutants.
The cleaned Sesame seeds are thereafter dried by roasting. They are roasted for crushing. The core purpose of roasting is to remove excess water after the cleaning process.
