Our Emu Oil processing are done in three major steps and our process produces international
standard quality Emu oil.
The oil generated in the extraction operation may be high in free fatty acids, peroxides,
and other impurities and also may have unpleasant odors. This makes it necessary
to further process the oil to make it fit for use as an edible product or for use
in cosmetics or pharmaceuticals. The presence of metals in rendered fats in general
is unavoidable due to contact of the fat with blood tissue. Metals are very effective
catalysts in the generation of free fatty acids from triglycerides and rapidly generates
rancidity in crude or finished oil.
Free fatty acids formed further deteriorate into peroxides which themselves decompose
into odorous materials which give the oil from the rendering operation an unpleasant
smell. Decomposition of proteinaceous materials, particularly if the bacterial count
is high, also generates obnoxious smells. This makes is necessary to follow some
or all of the following refining treatments inorder to bring the oil to the desired
specifications of a final product
1) Neutralization: This operation is carried out to remove free fatty acids from
the original fat and are not harmful per se. However, they are precursors of peroxides
and carboxylic compounds that are responsible for unwanted odors and rancidity in
fats, and their removal is usually the first step in the refining process. This is
usually done by neutralizing the free fatty acids with a weak caustic solution and
adding a slight excess to ensure complete neutralization. The neutralized free fatty
acids are then easily removed by centrifugation as saponified matter. This step also
removes residual matter such as phosphorous-based gums commonly found in crude oils
and any uncoagulated protein that may have remained in the oil from the rendering
2) Bleaching: This operation is usually practiced to remove unwanted colored compounds
in oils. Examples of these color compounds are carotenoids,chlorophyll, and burnt
or polymerized matter.An acid-activated clay is usually used for the removal of these
colored ompounds. However, bleaching also serves as a "cleaning" step of othercontaminants.
The acid-activated clay, in conjunction with other adsorbents normally used for bleaching,
also serves as a catalyst to decompose or remove peroxides and metals that may still
be present in the oil. In the case of emu oil, the bleaching operation is seldom
used to remove color. Emu oil extracted under moderate temperature and minimal exposure
to air usually has an acceptable color. However, the oil may still have some metals
and an excess of peroxides and saponified matter that must be removed from the oil.
The adsorbents used in bleaching effectively remove these contaminants. It is extremely
important that most metals be removed before processing the oil any further. The
next step is usually deodorizing, and if any metals are present in the oil during
deodorizing, it may in fact worsen the quality of the final product.
3) Deodorizing: This operation is performed to remove odors, peroxides, and carboxyl
compounds from the bleached oil. In some cases, this step is used to remove free
fatty acids as well. If the starting oil is good quality, the neutralization step
with caustic solution may be avoided, and the deodorizer can be used also as a physical
refiner. Deodorizing is usually done by injecting pure steam into the heated oil
