method for refining oil that includes extracting an oilseed with at least one organic solvent to form oil miscella comprising triglyceride(s), organic solvent(s), phospholipid(s), and fatty acid(s);
contacting the oil miscella with at least one of (i) water or (ii) an aqueous solution to form a medium having at least two immiscible phases, wherein at least a fraction of at least one of the immiscible phases is dispersed in the other immiscible phase; coalescing the dispersed immiscible phase;
separating the immiscible phases to generate a separated lipophilic product comprising the triglyceride(s) and the solvent(s) and a separated hydrophilic coproduct comprising water, the phospholipid(s), and the fatty acid(s), wherein centrifugation is not used for the separating the immiscible phases.
