    Global oilseeds industry is expected to expand in the future but would also constitute a platform for a variety of other products from processing waste such as protein meals and aromatic compounds. Edible Oils: Extraction, Processing, and Applications intends to present up to date technologies that are currently used for the extraction and refining of Edible Oils while proposing potential applications for its derivatives.

    This contribution pushes to consider market transformation driven by environmental concerns and customer’s envy to bring quality attributes, energy efficiency and waste disposal into the heart of innovation.

    This work is aimed at professionals and academics including researchers, engineers and managers engaged in food and green engineering disciplines and ambitions to stand as a reference for students and lecturers.

    The readers will find a wealth of knowledge about the fundamentals of unit operations such as extraction and separation while presenting concepts of biorefinery for product and value creation from certain edible seeds. Novelties includes novel approaches for green solvent development in extraction, and examples of life cycle assessment of production systems for certain vegetable oils comprising product, service and waste management systems. Furthermore, this book focuses attention to production, processing, and current applications of palm oil, as an important commodity in Asia and addresses global market changes and important factors that influence its future prospects.
