Microtalc FC8 has been tailored to increase the efficiency of the extraction process of olive oil, especially of fruits with unfavourable water content.
Due to its oleophilic properties, its platy particle shape and resulting high surface area, it is an economic and environmentally friendly process aid to make the highest quality olive oil.
The amount of oil that may be extracted can be increased by typically 50% by adding just a small dosage of Microtalc FC8.
It not only increases the yield, yet improves the quality by reducing the percentage of the free fatty acid content in oil.
