This report outlines the study protocols and compares the results obtained for the acid value. The result indicates that the acid value for commercial Soya bean oil after tide was 0.448mg/g and for commercial olive oil after tide was 23.95mg/g. The result for iodine value after liter for Soya bean oil was 15.06mg/g and for olive oil was 18.9mg/g. the result for peroxide value for Soya bean oil was 135mE/kg and for olive oil was 180mE/kg. The result for saponification value for Soya bean was 83.586/md and for olive oil was 101.8. The result for saponifiable matter for Soya bean was 1.705glmd and for olive oil was 1.847glmol. The result is often expressed as the percentage of free acidity. The acid value measures the extent to which the glycerides in the oil have been decomposed by lipase action. The decomposition is accelerated by heat and light.   ...
