Babaob oil from Togo

Processing of seeds for the production of fixed oils is a direct result from the demand for natural oils from organically grown seeds without rectification or fractionation for the soap, cosmetic and natural insecticide industries and others which need that the oil produced had to be original, genuine and in no way chemically treated.

The seeds are wild or organically grown plantation collected in Togo
Processing: cold press, solvent free

Jatropha seeds oil
Jatropha curcas

The seeds are wild collected in Togo (West Africa) well selected  & free of defects. Moisture: 10% max Per 100 g, the seed is reported to contain 6.6 g H2O, 18.2 g protein, 38.0 g fat, 33.5 g total carbohydrate, 15.5 g fiber, and 4.5 g ash..

Oily liquid with a yellowish color
The oil content is 35 � 40% in the seeds and 50 � 60% in the kernel.
The oil contains 21% saturated fatty acids and 79% unsaturated fatty acids.
There are some chemical elements in the seed which are poisonous and render the oil not appropriate for human consumption. The oil can be used as fuel in pre-combustion chamber engines and as lubricant, oil and sediment for soap production and the press cake as good organic fertilizer. The oil contains also an insecticide
