Expeller Pressed Process

Expeller-Pressed Canola

Expeller-pressed canola oil is a mechanical, screw-press method of extracting oil from the canola seed. It stands in contrast to solvent extraction processing, which typically uses hexane to extract oil from the seed.

Expeller-pressed canola oil can be sold at a premium price due to its perceived health advantages. Expeller-pressed canola meal may also trade at higher value per pound as a result of its higher oil content, which results in a higher protein/energy content.
