The degumming process of vegetable oil is also called dephosphorization process, because the main colloid in vegetable oil is phospholipid. Besides, there are also proteins and their breakdown products, phlegmatic, a complex of colloid and a variety of metals, etc. The exist of these substances not only influence the quality of product oil and the stability of vegetable oil storage, but also affect the subsequent vegetable oil refining process and the further processing of the vegetable oil.

In vegetable oil refining process, there are two degumming methods usually used in degumming process. One is hydration degumming method, the other is dry degumming method. They are suitable for different crude vegetable oil. For example, hydration degumming method is suitable for soybean oil because of the high colloid content. The dry degumming method is often used in palm oil refining process, because the colloid content of palm oil is very low.
