Process for producing a low gossypol proteinproduct from glanded cottonseed
Document Type and Number:United States Patent 4201709Link to this page:http://www.freepatentsonline.com/4201709.htmlAbstract:A low-gossypol, high-protein flour is produced by a process whichutilizes conventional solvent extraction equipment with a certainseries of steps, culminating at a point where a defatted, milled,cottonseed flour mixture is rendered edible for humanconsumption by the separation of the gossypol-containingportion.Inventors:Kadan, Ranjit S.

In a process for producing protein flour having reduced freegossypol content from glanded cottonseed wherein the processcomprises the following steps:
(a) flaking dehulled, glanded cottonseed with a moisture contentof about from 5% to 12% by weight,(b) solvent extracting the cottonseed flakes to reduce fatcontent,(c) desolventizing the solvent extracted flakes, and(d) milling the desolventized flakes into a flour, the improvementwherein the moisture content of the cottonseed flakes is reducedto about from 1% to 2% by weight prior to solvent extraction, thefat content of the cottonseed flakes is reduced to about from 1%to 3% by weight, and air-classifying the flour to obtain a coarsefraction and a fines fraction, thereafter repeatedly air-classifyingthe fines fractions until a food grade flour with a free gossypolcontent of less than 0.045% is achieved.2. The process of claim 1 wherein a hull content of the initialcottonseed of the process is less than 2%.3. The process of claim 1 wherein the moisture content of thecottonseed flakes is reduced by means of a high-velocity flow-through dryer.4. The process of claim 1 wherein the number of air-classificationsteps is determined by the percentage of free gossypol desired.5. The process of claim 1 wherein the air-classification isaccomplished by means of a centrifugal air-classifier.Description:BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION(1) Field of the Invention
