Abstract


The effectiveness of two additives, namely, laboratory prepared sodium oleate and sodium stearate to improve the colour of colour fixed cottonseed oil was studied. Also the presence of the azeotropic extract of cottonseed meal together with 5% Na oleate or 10%Na stearate was taken In consideration. Improvement in the colour index of most treated refined and bleached oil samples is observed. This is confirmed with the reduction of gossypol contents of the refined and bleached treated oil samples compared with the untreated oil sample.
