Cottonseed oil (روغن بنولہ/ روغن روئی) is a commonly used vegetable oil that’s derived from the seeds of cotton plants. A whole cotton seed contains about 15 to 20 percent oil. Cottonseed oil must be refined to remove gossypol. This naturally occurring toxin gives the oil its yellow color and protects the plant from insects.Cottonseed oil is extracted from the seeds of cotton plants of various species, mainly Gossypium hirsutum and Gossypium herbaceum. They are grown primarily to produce for cotton fiber and animal feed. Processing includes the use of hydraulic pressing, screw pressing, and solvent extraction.
