Since the original publication of this book in 1992, the bleaching process has continued to attract the attention of researchers and the edible-oil industry. In this 2nd edition, the reader is directed to more modern techniques of analysis such as flame-atomic adsorption, graphite furnace atomic adsorption, and atomic emission spectrometry involving direct current plasma (DCP) and inductively coupled plasma (ICP). It also discusses the Freundlich Equation and reports on high-temperature water extraction, high- temperature oxidative aqueous regeneration, and extraction with supercritical CO2. Finally, various degumming methods improved over the past several decades are discussed
- Second edition features the progress in the bleaching and purifying of fats and oils since the mid-1990s
- Includes extensive details on the adsorptive purification of an oil prior to subsequent steps in the process, including refining and deodorization
- Offers practical considerations for choosing membranes, filtration equipment, and other key economic consideratons
