There are two kinds softening methods, one is adding water and heating method, the other is heating and anhydrating method.
The former method is mainly suitable for low-oil-content or low-moisture oil seeds, like soybean, which is also used for processing high-oil-content oil seeds with hard shells or high cellulose, such as canola, flaxseed, etc. For this softening method, we need to add hot water or inject direct steam.

But for most high-oil-content oil seeds, like the peanut kernel, teaseed kernel, sunflower etc, their texture is soft, we will adopts the latter softening method, which is also called cooking , during softening we just need to heating ( adding a very little direct steam) , or without softening section, they can flaking directly.
