Mandarin Oil Yellow

Citrus reticulata

Mandarin oil is one of the most important essential citrus oils for the food and fragrance industry. Depending on the origin, ripeness or type of fruit, the oil obtained from the peel can be yellow, green or red.

The annual production of mandarin oil worldwide is between 1.75 to 1.85 million kilograms. The yield is approximately 3 to 5 kilograms of oil per 1000 kilograms of fruit.
