Extraction, Compositional Studies and Physico-Chemical Characteristics of Palm Kernel Oil
V.N. Atasie and T.F. Akinhanmi

Abstract:
Proximate, physico-chemical and elemental analysis of palm Kernel nut were determined to contain fat/oil 42%, crude protein 7.01%, moisture 6.5%, crude fibre 11.09% and carbohydrate (by difference) 33.40%. The elemental composition (mg/100 g), included :Na (37.00±0.40), K (39.51±0.22), Mg (3.60±0.1), Ca (19.0±0.42), Fe (20.04±0.28), Zn (2.82±0.30), P (3.4±0.00). The result of the physico-chemical properties of the palm kernel oil are:-saponification value (232.815 mgKOH/g), refractive index (1.453), iodine value (41.24g/100g), acid value (11.60 mgKOH/g) and peroxide value (1.70meq/kg).
