Oleomargarine Manufacture





The process by which suet is converted into

the substance called oleamargarine is as follows: The crude suet after

first being washed in cold water is "rendered," melted, and then drawn

off into movable tanks. The hard substance is subjected to a hydraulic

pressure of 350 tons, and the oil extracted. The butter is made from

the oil thus obtained, while the hard substance remaining is disposed

of as stearine. The oil, being carried off into churns, is mixed with

milk and from three to five per cent of dairy butter. It is then drawn

off in a consistent form, and cooled with broken ice. The latter is

soon removed, and the butter worked up with a small portion of salt.

When this is done the article is ready for packing and consumption.
