Crude PKO Vs Refiend PKO
Palm kernel oil is a very complex product that can be classified into different quality levels according to its physical properties. For making use of the palm kernel oil better in more industries, the more refined it becomes, the better its characteristics will be. The freshly produced crude palm kernel oil is one creamy or slightly yellow in color, has a solid-like consistency, meanwhile, having impurities. Thus, the refining process can easily remove the impurities (such as waxes) that can negatively affect the product quality. The crude palm kernel oil physical properties (color. consistency. odor and viscosity) will not change after it has been refined because refining removes impurities without changing its composition.

- Neutralization: use the caustic soda to remove the acids like free fatty acids, phospholipids, pigments and waxes.
- Bleaching: Put the earth powder, activated clay or activated carbon to the heated oil to absorb the colored matter.
- Deodorization: Pressurized steam at very high temperatures is used to remove volatile compounds that can cause odors and off-flavors in the final product.
