separation technology

Natural fats and oils are a compound of numerous fat and oil components. For example, palm oil hardens like lard but it contains low melting point liquid oil components like those in soybean oil as well as high melting point solid oil components.
Separation technology is used to divide these mixed components, and can be used to create new fats and oils with differing melting points or properties. Fuji Oil was the first company in Japan to successfully develop separation technology for fats and oils for consumption for commercialization and mass production. Today, separation technology represents a core technology that is used to create numerous Fuji Oil products.
