Oilseed processing is the process of removing oil from oilseed.
Oilseed processing begins with the harvesting of oilseed on the farm where its grown, and continues through oilseed extraction where the oil in the oilseed is extracted, clarification, packaging, storage and shipping of the final oilseed oil. Oilseed processing depends on several variables including the type of oilseed as well as the location, could be fully automated, or may require people to hand pick the oilseeds or nuts.
Small-scale oilseed processing is of interest as a potential on-farm or community enterprise that can increase income and employment in rural areas. Many seeds, nuts and kernels contain oil, a vegetable oil, which can be used after it’s removed, in the following uses：
- as an ingredient in other foods
- as a nutritional supplement
- as a raw material for the manufacture of soap, body and hair oils, detergents and paints
Some of these oils may also be used to replace certain petroleum-based lubricants and fuels. Small-scale oil extraction is more common in India, because there have more oilseeds to do oilseed processing.
