ginger oil extraction

Ginger oil is pressed from the root of ginger. Ginger oil can vary in color from pale yellow to a darker amber color, and the viscosity also ranges from the medium to watery. It has a strong spicy, sharp, and warm aromatic odor. Ginger oil is widely used as flavor for cake, cookies and biscuits. Besides, as is well suited to help ease colds and flu, ginger oil is also used for medical research.

Ginger oil extraction has two ways: steam distillation and solvent extraction. Solvent extraction is for the extraction of ginger oleoresin, while steam distillation is used to get ginger essential oil.

Process of Ginger Oil Extraction

Steam distillation is safer because there is no solvent used but pure water as the main component. The dried ginger is grinded into powder in advance. Then, the steam produced in the boiler will be supplied into the vessel, which contains water and ginger powder. The steam will contact to the ginger powder and force ginger oil out. After a while, water vapor and the distilled ginger oil are recovered in a different water cooler and condenser. These two separated mixture occurs because of difference in density. The distilled water leaves from downside, while the ginger essential oil is collected at the top of the condenser. Then this ginger essential oil is sent back to the vessel by means of second distillation to recover the soluble components of the ginger oil.
