The ExPress extrusion system from Insta-Pro International combines dry extruders and horizontal screw presses to remove up to 75% of the available oil from most oilseeds. Insta-Pro said the dry extrusion of oilseeds has been used to reduce anti-nutritional factors and growth inhibitors, improve digestibility, rupture oil cells and produce full-energy oilseed meal. The ExPress system can be used to produce all-natural oils and meals from identity-preserved crops. Because no steam is used in the ExPress extruder, no external moisture is added to the oil. Insta-Pro is the equipment manufacturing division of Triple "F" Inc., a diversified agribusiness company headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, U.S.
