Why is cottonseed oil rarely promoted?
Since the cottonseed oil has high quality and high consumption, why it is rarely promoted?
Because there has been controversy over the use of cottonseed oil, and the price can’t be matched with the value, the industry development has encountered difficulties. Gossypol is a natural ingredient to resist pests and diseases contained in cotton, but it is harmful to humans. In the past, restricted by production technology, unrefined cotton oil contains gossypol and other harmful substances, and there have been food safety incidents caused by the consumption of unrefined cotton oil. As a result, people still have a prejudice against cottonseed oil.
Nowadays, cotton oil has been refined to remove harmful substances and is safe for consumption, but the public cannot distinguish between the concepts of crude cotton oil and refined cotton oil. There are also a lot of vague media reports that not only do not clear up people's doubts, but also add to the misconceptions about cottonseed oil. When we search for information on cottonseed oil, most of the information is negative.

However, what the public does not understand is that China's cottonseed oil and cottonseed processing comprehensive utilization technology is already in the international leading position. Myande Group has developed the dephenolization technology to effectively remove the gossypol contained in cotton oil and cottonseed protein. In addition, cottonseed protein can replace soybean meal for the feed industry, and cottonseed hulls are the main raw material for culture medium in edible mushroom industry, thus making the best use of cottonseed resources.
