About Karyashala

India, a prominent oilseed producer and importer, has the world’s fourth-largest vegetable oil economy after the USA, China, and Brazil. The country contributes 5% to global vegetable oil production and imports around 14% of the world’s edible oil consumption. India’s diverse agro-ecological conditions support the cultivation of nine annual oilseed crops, including seven edible and two non-edible varieties. Effective handling and storage practices are crucial to maintain the quality of oil and meal. This practical workshop aims to enhance technological advancements in oil and oilseed stability, non-conventional processing methods, quality assessment, and nutritional enhancement. The focus is on preventing rancidity, oxidation, and extending shelf life.


The workshop aims to familiarize postgraduate and Ph.D. students with the extraction of oil from non-conventional sources and advanced processing technologies. The session will include an in-depth discussion on engineering properties used to assess the quality of fat and oil seeds. This initiative
aligns with the “Skill India” program by the Government of India, which promotes entrepreneurial endeavors and self- reliance among the youth.

Purpose of the workshop

The workshop aims to enhance skills in advanced processing technology for a variety of oil seeds, with a specific emphasis on improving shelf life and analyzing relevant parameters. Hands-on training will be provided to students from universities, private academic institutions, and institutes to achieve this goal.

The primary objectives of the workshop are as follows:

• To familiarize participants with both conventional and cutting-edge processing technologies employed for improving the shelf life of non-traditional edible oils.
• To develop oils that are stable with sustainable modification technologies that augment shelf-life stability, and explore their application in food products.
• To evaluate the physio-chemical, nutritional, and sensory characteristics of oils and oil-based products.
