COPENHAGEN, DENMARK — LysoMax Oil, a new enzyme solution, increases the yield during vegetable oil refining by improving the release of oil from the gum, a viscous fraction obtained from treating crude vegetable oil with hot water, according to Danisco. The method allows producers to reduce the process water by 50%. It has no negative impact on oil quality and requires no further investments in equipment.
When using LysoMax Oil, enzymes are added to the water flow during the oil refining process. The process may be carried out at 55 degrees Centigrade (131 degrees Fahrenheit).
