Abstract


Bleached cottonseed oil, partially hydrogenated palm oil and margarine were stored in metal (tin) cans and white plastic (polyethylene) bottles with air in head space and served at room temperature during the whole period of investigation. The analytical techniques used to analyse these materials has been done at zero time storing (control), after four and seven months of storage. This study showed that storing oils in metal cans have better results than plastic packages specially for bleached cottonseed and hydrogenated oils.
