Groundnut oil extraction Facts and how much it will cost for you 24 Dec 2018

Recently we extracted oil from Ground nuts and i wanted to share my experience with that process and we will try to identify how much it will cost

As per normal standard and based on previous experiences Oil and Ganuga Pindi percentage in 100 KG ground nuts

Usually it will be 38% oil and 62% Ganuga pindi

  • We purchased Groundnuts/peanuts : 100 KG ( This includes two gunny bags which will weigh 1.5 KG)
  • Groundnuts price 1 KG @ 77, if it is quintal then it is @75
  • Total ground nut cost : 7500 rupees ————————————–
  • Weight Loss Around 4-5 KGs
    • Gunny Bags weight 1.5 KG
    • Loss due to wetness 1-2 KG
    • Labours eat 1.5 KG

After crushing ground nuts These are the out puts:

  • Ganuga pindi weight which I got after crushing – 56 Kgs (Ideally scenario 62)
  • Ground nut oil weight after crushing — 39.5 ( 1.5 – 2 Kgs maddi will be there. We can add this to Ganuga Pindi but we can not sell this)
  • Total weight: 56+39.5 = 95.5 Kgs – which matches my total ORIGINAL weight of nuts

Ganuga pindi – 56+2 = 58 KGs

Oil – 39.5-2 = 37.5 KGs

  • I sold Ganuga pindi 1 KG @ 44 rupees . So 56X44= 2464 rupees
  • Crushing charges for ground nuts 1 KG @ 6 rupees. For 100 KG = 600
  • Total cost for my oil = 7500 + 600– 2464 = 5636 rupees

Oil cost = 5636 / 37.5 KG == 150.29 rupees per KG

  • I have not included transportation costs, and labour cost (since I spent my time)
  • Even though if you include above costs, Total cost will be 160 rupees per KG
  • I spend 5-6 hours in doing this work.
  • In this method heat will be produced while pressing/extracting oil
  • Better to take cold pressed oil, if do not have a feasabilty then you can go for this method

Conclusion:

Insted of buying adulterated oils outside, if you work for a day you can eat for 6 months. You will eat quality product. You will have satisfaction.
