Corn Oil

Corn oil manufacturing specifications involve cleaning, degerminating, and mechanically pressing corn kernels to extract the oil. The oil is then refined, including degumming, neutralization, bleaching, and deodorization processes. It should meet food safety standards and regulatory guidelines. Refined corn oil should have a pale color, neutral odor, and flavor, with a high smoke point, typically over 450°F. Proper packaging to prevent oxidation is crucial, and compliance with “best by” or shelf-life dates should be ensured.
