Exploring the Canola Oil Manufacturing Process:

Canola, a crucial oilseed crop globally, originated in Canada through the crossbreeding of the rapeseed plant to eliminate toxic compounds. Canola oil is considered a healthier option for consumption due to its lower levels of erucic acid and glucosinolates. The manufacturing process involves several stages:

  1. Cleaning: The seeds undergo thorough cleaning to remove unwanted materials such as pods, stems, and weed seeds.
  2. Heating and Flaking: Seeds are heated and flaked to facilitate the oil extraction process without shattering the seeds. This involves passing them through rollers to rupture cell walls, achieving the ideal thickness.
  3. Cooking: Canola seeds are cooked in heating drums or stacked cookers to further rupture cell walls, raise moisture and viscosity levels, and maintain product quality.
  4. Pressing: Cooked flakes undergo gentle pressing using pressers or expellers, extracting almost all the oil while compressing the remaining seed into solid cakes.
  5. Extraction: Solid cakes are subjected to extraction using hexane as a solvent, separating the remaining oil from the cakes, and recycling the hexane.
  6. Refining: The extracted oil undergoes refining to ensure purity and quality.


Canola oil, with its roots in Canada, has become a widely popular and affordable cooking oil in the Nigerian market. Understanding the manufacturing process and exploring the diverse product options empowers consumers to make informed choices for a healthy lifestyle.
