Palm oil is one of the major fats and oils produced and traded in the world today. It forms an important ingredient in the diet of many people in West Africa. The quality of palm oil is mostly determined by the fatty acid, moisture and impurity content, and bleachability. This study examined the quality of palm oil produced at cottage industry level in Ghana with a view to improve its quality to meet industrial standards and increase its marketability. Palm oil produced from fruits stored at… CONTINUE READING
