This project examines the quantity of palm oil sample obtained from different location in Abia State Nigeria in terms of determining the physiochemical characteristics of palm oil. The result obtained were as follow: Saponification: A 336.17KOH/mg, B 271.64mg/KOH/g C 226.76kg/KOH/g, D 220.6mg/KOH/g. iodine value: A 486, B657mg/2/g, C  7.52mg/2/g, D 5.99mg/2/g, E  6.82mg/2/g, F 7.65mg/2/g, G 0.79mg/2/g. Refractive Index A  1.462, B 1.462, C 1.4620, D 1.4620%, E 1.4620, F 1.4625, G  1.4610. Peroxide value A  1.8ml/g, B  2.4ml/g, C  6.6ml/g, D  3.4ml/g, E  1.5ml/g, F  3.7ml/g, G 3.4ml/g. free fatty acid: A 37.026%, B  42.355, C 32.819, D  45.1605, E  18.513, F  40112, G  1.4025. Smoke point: A  820c, B 1000c, C  1020c, D  1000c, E  1000c, F  1000c, G  850c. Flash point: A  1850c, B  1600c, C  1600c, D  1830c, E  1850c, F 1650c, G  1600c. The different samples of palm oil analyzed were ascertained for safe consumption but requires adequate handling to guarantee the expected shelf life.      ...
