Abstract:

Soybean Oil Deodorizer Distillate (SODD) is obtained as a byproduct of the soybean oil refining process which is rich in sterols, tocopherols, steryl esters, free fatty acids (FFA) and hydrocarbons. The objective of this study was to develop a novel cost effective process for isolation of phytostanols from SODD. Soybean oil Deodorizer Distillate contains approximately 5 to 15 % free sterols of β-sitosterol (35-45 %), campesterol (15-25%), stigmasterol (35-45%) and avenasterol (2-8%). The processing steps for preparation of phytostanols from SODD are briefly as follows. SODD was first dried, mixed with methanol sulphuric acid and esterified. After complete removal of catalyst, the fatty acid methyl esters are distilled out at vacuum with steam supply at 200°C. The residue is then hydrogenated with nickel catalyst and crystallized at 10°C. Crystallized stanols were filtered and washed with chilled hexane to get high purity phytostanols. The major advantage of this process is hydrogenation of phytostanols carried out without a solvent medium. The present study brought out an innovative integrated process for the isolation of phytostanols from SODD. Process simplicity, product quality, less residue and low effluents are the advantages of the study.
