Title: Optimization of sunflower oil expression

Models to predict input energy for sunflower oil extraction were developed for four seed types. Input energy was found to be the lowest in case of whole seed at low seed moisture content (up to 7%), whereas, at higher moisture content, coarsely ground seed required the minimum input energy. Maximum net energy was obtained for coarsely ground seed with 8% moisture content, heated to 35/sup 0/C and expressed at 28 MPa for 5.5 minutes.
