The clarity of single and double fractionated palm oleins of different iodine values (IV) were studied. At 5°C, all samples crystallized within a day; two samples (DfPOo IV 65 and 67) were cloudy while the rest became solid. On the other hand, all samples were clear at 20°C except SfPOo IV 56 and 58. Samples DfPOo IV 62, 65 and 67 remained clear at 20°C until day 60. Fatty acid composition and the content of diglycerides seemed to have an influence on the clarity of palm oleins.KEYWORDS:
