The refining of palm oil using locally available
materials has been successfullY carried out through Thermal
method and Adsorption method.
Crude palm oil was degummed and neutralised. The
treated palm oil was then bleached with different masses of
activated clay and carbonised saw dust, and the results
Thermal bleaching of the crude palm oil was carried out
o at 140 C and 3.1% colour reduction was achieved. For refining
by adsorptive method, maxium colour reduction of 82% was
achieved when 0.9g of activated clay was mixed with 109 of
oil as compared. to 57.7% when carobonised saw dust was used.
There is however substantial reduction in the vitamin
content of the oil .
