Oil is divided into small mill oil and machine-pressed oil according to the production method. Machine-pressed oil is prepared at high temperature, and the nutrients contained in it are destroyed under high temperature and high pressure, so the nutritional value of machine-pressed oil is relatively small. Low grinding oil.
Xiaomoyou is a traditional local specialty. It is still brewed in Anhui, Hebei, Shandong, Henan and other places using the "small millpan" and ancestral techniques. The craftsmanship of "washing, frying, grinding and blanching" is purely manual and no additives. The scientific name is "Water Generation Method". The small mill sesame oil is ground by stone mill, and the oil is extracted by the water generation method (below 100 ℃). It belongs to the pure physical method of oil production. Compared with modern oil production processes such as pressing method and solvent method, it has lower operating temperature and loss of nutrients and fragrance substances. The advantages of less, the product is amber, strong fragrance, long taste, deeply loved by the people.
At present, most domestic small mill sesame oils are mainly produced in hand-made workshops, with many processing sites and lack of reliable process parameter standards, resulting in uneven product quality and affecting the reputation of small mill oils. Therefore, on the basis of inheriting the essence of traditional small grinding sesame oil technology, it is closely integrated with modern processing technology and equipment, boldly innovated, using mechanized and automated production lines to upgrade and transform existing manual production methods, improve the production environment and sanitary conditions of the workshop, and reverse the small grinding The small, chaotic, and poor market status of sesame oil is an effective way to ensure the sustainable and healthy development of my country's traditional famous small mill oil.
