Extraction and modeling of flaxseed (Linnum usitatissimum) oil using subcritical propane

Extraction and modeling of flaxseed (Linnum usitatissimum) oil using subcritical propane This study aimed at investigating flaxseed (Linnum usitatissimum) oil extraction using subcritical propane. Extractions were performed in a laboratory scale unit at temperature (20–60 °C) and pressure (80–120 bar) experimental conditions. Subcritical extraction process kinetic aspects evaluation was performed using four mathematical models found in the literature. The subcritical propane process successfully extracted Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids presenting good yielding in the experimental conditions studied. Physical characterization for commercial and subcritical propane extraction oils presented 1.477 and 1.473 refractive indexes at 40 °C, respectively. The oil extracted using subcritical propane presented free fatty acid contents lower than commercial oil (0.95% wt vs 1.37% wt). The adjusted parameters models presented good fitting with the experimental data under the investigated conditions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Food Engineering Elsevier

Abstract

This study aimed at investigating flaxseed (Linnum usitatissimum) oil extraction using subcritical propane. Extractions were performed in a laboratory scale unit at temperature (20–60 °C) and pressure (80–120 bar) experimental conditions. Subcritical extraction process kinetic aspects evaluation was performed using four mathematical models found in the literature. The subcritical propane process successfully extracted Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids presenting good yielding in the experimental conditions studied. Physical characterization for commercial and subcritical propane extraction oils presented 1.477 and 1.473 refractive indexes at 40 °C, respectively. The oil extracted using subcritical propane presented free fatty acid contents lower than commercial oil (0.95% wt vs 1.37% wt). The adjusted parameters models presented good fitting with the experimental data under the investigated conditions.
