Edible Oil Purification

TONSIL® bleaching earth grades for the oil refining process

Our TONSIL® range of bleaching earth is based on over a century experience in purifying edible oils and fats, and until today Clariant remains a truly global player and thought leader for edible oil purification.

The broad TONSIL® product range provides natural and activated bleaching clays which is able to gently remove pigments, gums and other substances that can unfavorably affect the appearance, taste, odor and shelf life of edible oils.

At the same time, our tailor-made formulations efficiently tackle the challenges of minimizing the level of 3-MCPD esters and glycidyl esters (GE) in palm oil depending on the actual feedstock.

Feel free to contact us and benefit from Clariant’s ability to reproduce your edible oil refining process on a laboratory scale and accurately tailor our TONSIL® solutions to your needs.
