Rice bran can be processed into nutritious cooking oil and bring considerable profits. So how much oil can be obtained from 1 ton of rice bran? In general, 130kg oil can be obtained from 1 ton rice bran. But in fact, the rice bran oil yield is influenced by rice bran oil content, processing method, processing technology.
Generally speaking, the oil content of rice bran varies from 14% to 25%. Relatively speaking, the higher the oil content, the more rice bran oil can be obtained. Rice bran has a certain freshness period and is recommended to be processed within 10 days after harvest.
Besides the rice bran’s quality, the rice bran oil’s processing method will also influence the rice bran oil yield. There are mainly two ways to obtain oil, one is direct pressing way and the other is puffing solvent extraction way.
The residual oil rate for rice bran oil processing by direct pressing is about 7%, that means about 130kg oil can be obtained from 1 ton rice bran; while the residual oil rate for rice bran oil processing by puffing solvent extraction is only 1%, that means about 190kg oil can be obtained from 1 ton rice bran. Considering the processing benefits, rice bran oil is more suitable for puffing solvent extraction.
Last but not the least, the processing technology of rice bran oil processing machine is also an important factor that influence the rice bran oil yield. The more advanced the processing technology, the more uniform and stable rice bran oil processing, the higher the oil yield of rice bran oil.
