The oil is taken from the fatty tissue on the top layer of the emu's back. First the fat is separated from the meat, then it's removed from the skin. The fat is then ground and then melted. The processing phase is next, during which the oil is filtered, refined, sterilised and deodorised.

Are emu killed for their oil?

Emu aren't killed FOR their oil. They're raised in emu farms and killed for their meat... The fat and meat are then separated, and the fat is melted down and refined to oil. Most of the emu is used after it is killed... The feathers, hide, even claws do not go to waste. Sad, but at least they are not being killed ONLY for the oil.
