Current d-Limonene formulators may find that Cold Pressed Orange Oil is an effective and economic way to add color and extra citrus aroma to their product. Cold Pressed Orange Oil is a food product with a long history of uses in the flavor and fragrance industry. Examples include its use as an ingredient in fruit flavors and floral perfume compositions. Cold Pressed Orange Oil is a common additive to many products requiring citrus flavor because of the sweet and fresh notes of the product.


Cold Pressed Orange Oil is packaged in epoxy-lined containers as follows:

1-Gallon Pail 7 Pounds Net Weight 3.2 Kilos Net Weight
5-Gallon Pail 35 Pounds Net Weight 16 Kilos Net Weight
55-Gallon Pail 390 Pounds Net Weight 177 Kilos Net Weight


Filled drums should be stored in well ventilated, covered areas at temperatures which should not exceed 70F (21C) for extended periods of time. Air should be excluded from partially filled drums by displacement with Nitrogen or CO2. Citrus oils are subject to oxidation. This process may be inhibited by the addition of antioxidants. Cold Pressed Orange Oil is "winterized" when it is first produced by storing it at freezing temperatures to remove the majority of natural waxes. Although this process is done as thoroughly as possible, trace amounts of waxy solids may remain and settle out of the product when stored for an extended amount of time, particularly in cold temperatures.

Samples and certificates of analysis are available upon request.
