SIMEC Support Shea Butter Produce in Abidjan

Tags : 

In mid October 2021, SIMEC shipped shea butter extraction equipment to Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

The project is designed to produce shea butter in the form of 25 KG block wrapped and packed in carton. In the future, the same equipment will also produce extra virgin avocado oil.

In the shea butter production process, the client will roast the shea almonds then introduce them into the material barrels of hydraulic oil press. Afterwards the liquid product will be filtered by oil purification apparatus and filled into 25kg cardboard boxes (with a plastic bag).

25kg-butter-block-wrapped shea-butter-block

Shea butter, which is solid and waxy in appearance at room temperature, becomes oily above 34 °C. The oil transforms to butter below 34 degrees Celsius.

Starting with shea butter, the client will produce avocado oil and coconut oil later. The same machine can also make cold processed organic oil from castor, sesame, jojoba, moringa, etc.

Avocado Peeling and Pitting Test

Avocado Peeling and Pitting Test

Tags : 

Avocado peeling and pitting test is one of the quality control procedures before delivery. The machine is customized for a French client who needs to peel the avocado fruits and get clean pulp in chunks. So the avocado seeds are not protected to be complete when we design this set of machine.

However, some clients may need complete avocado seeds for nursery purposes. To achieve this requirement, SIMEC will adjust the design, homogenize the peeling and pitting mechanisms. Fruit positioning pins will not contact the seeds. The separators will not hurt the seeds, either.

SIMEC have developed multi designs to fulfill the requirements from different clients. For more information, please send your enquiry to  info@simecoilpress.com

Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Avocado Oil

Tags : 

PRODUCT: Cold-pressed Extra Virgin Avocado Oil.

SUPPLY VOLUME: 1000 liters per month, 50 ml/bottle.

ORIGION: Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania.

PROCESS TECHNOLOGY: The oil is obtained from avocado fruits, adopting 100% cold press technology by using SIMEC hydraulic oil press.

The cold-pressed extra virgin avocado oil is made from ripe avocado fruits, which contains up to 30% oil (based on fresh weight) in the avocado mesocarp. To have optimal oil quality, avocado fruits used for cold-pressed oil production must have ideally ripeness, minimal rots and other postharvest disorders (such as flesh greying due to long storage).

cold-pressed-extra-virgin-avocado-oil avocado-mesocarp-paste
 Extra Virgin Avocado Hydraulic oil Press  Avocado  Mesocarp Paste

The cold-pressed Extra Virgin Avocado Oil has the following properties:

  • Emerald green color;
  • Distinctive flavor with grassy and butter/mushroom-like flavors;
  • High in monounsaturated fatty acids;
  • High smoke point (≥250℃);
  • All nutritional value retained.

Extra Virgin Avocado Oil Cold-pressed Avocado Oil Products

Do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you’d like try the extra virgin avocado oil by calling us by 0086-372-5375806 or send Email to info@simecoilpress.com.

Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Avocado Oil Composition:

Fatty Acid Content
Monounsaturates (oleic and palmitoleic acids) 76%
Polyunsaturates (linoleic and linolenic acids) 12%
Saturates (palmitic and stearic acids) 12%
Non-lipid Nutrients Content
α-tocopherol 70-190 mg/kg oil
Chlorophylls 11-19 mg/kg oil
Carotenoid (lutein) 0.5-3.3 mg/kg oil
Phytosterols (b-sitosterol being the main sterol present) 2.23-4.48 mg/g oil

 

Almost 70% of cold-pressed avocado oil consists of heart-healthy oleic acid, a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. Additionally, around 12% of avocado oil is saturated fat and about 13% is polyunsaturated fat.

Based on its fatty acid makeup and the presence of these phytochemicals, extra virgin cold-pressed avocado oil is considered to be a healthful oil. It is highly versatile and easy to incorporate into your diet.

For example, it can be consumed cold, but it’s also a safe and healthy cooking oil because its fatty acids are stable at high heat.

 

It has been proved the cold-pressed extra virgin avocado oil contains but not limited to the following benefits to our body:

I. Reduces Cholesterol and Improves Heart Health

It has been proven that cold-pressed avocado oil has beneficial effects on heart health, including the reduction of blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels.

What’s more, the oil was found to be the most effective in increasing HDL, the “good” cholesterol. It also may reduce blood triglycerides and LDL cholesterol levels, as well as lower blood pressure.

II. High in Lutein, an Antioxidant That has Benefits for The Eyes

Cold-pressed avocado oil is a relatively good source of lutein, a carotenoid that functions as an antioxidant that is beneficial for eye health.

Eating plenty of lutein may reduce the risk of age-related cataracts and macular degeneration.

Our body doesn’t produce lutein, so we must obtain it from our diet.

III. Help Prevent Gum Disease

Some evidence suggests that avocado unsaponifiables may also help prevent periodontal disease, also called gum disease.

According to a study in bone cells and periodontal tissue, avocado unsaponifiables may block a protein called IL1B.

This protein promotes inflammation and is the main driver of tissue destruction and bone loss in gum disease.

IV. Reduce Symptoms of Arthritis

Numerous studies have found that unsaponifiables in cold-pressed avocado oil, may reduce the pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis. It seems to be especially beneficial for people who have hip and knee osteoarthritis.

V. Neutralizes Free Radicals

High levels of free radicals (waste products of metabolism) may contribute to diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Antioxidants contained in extra-virgin avocado oil can enter cell mitochondria and decrease the production of harmful free radicals.

VI. Enhances the Absorption of Important Nutrients

Some nutrients need fat to be absorbed by our bodies. Among these are the carotenoid antioxidants, found in many plant foods. However, fruits and vegetables rich in carotenoids are typically low in fat.

It’s found that adding cold-pressed avocado oil when eating vegetables, it can increase the absorption of carotenoid antioxidants up to 17 times.

 

The benefits of extra virgin avocado oil on the human body are not only reflected in internal use, the external use of avocado oil is also beneficial. The following characteristics make extra virgin avocado oil an important ingredient for cosmetic production:

  • The fatty acids in cold-pressed avocado oil appear to improve symptoms of psoriasis.
  • Extra virgin avocado oil has also been studied for its ability to treat skin injuries. It can improves skin and accelerate wound healing.
  • It can provides deep moisturization for dryness skin, delays skin aging process, prevents and treats acne and reduce dark circles.
  • Avocado oil used on hair caring may helps hair growth, keeps hair shiny and smooth.
  • It may Improve nail health.

Apricot kernel oil is easy to apply on the skin as it quickly spreads and percolates deep into the skin. A massage with apricot kernel oil is good for dry, parched skin. One can use it after a shower to seal the moisture into the skin. Since it is light, it does not feel too oily. Once it is absorbed into skin, it provides moisturization for a long time.
Apricot kernel oil is one of the best carrier oils for massage and can be utilized for various kinds of massage that require an oil. It penetrates nicely into the skin and also improves the delivery of essential oils and other herbal agents.
