What is special oil seed? It is palm fruit. Palm fruit is an oil seed growing in tropical area, like Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Nigeria, Congo, and other African countries. There, the palm oil production industry is always very promising. But the extraction method of palm oil is totally different from that of extract oil from the common oil seeds. Palm fruit contains very high oil content, about 46%-50%. And in the palm fruit, there is palm kernel inside, which is also a kind of oil seeds. So to press palm fruit, it is better not to break the palm kernel. It is also the reason why palm oil press machine is different from common oil seeds press machine.
