The studies to determine the effect of pre-processing conditions on the characteristics of palm kernel oil (PKO), on the physiochemical characteristics of palm kernel oil (PKO), has been successfully carried out in this work. It can be concluded from the results conducted over 6 months period, that there was significant difference (P<0.05) in storage time of saponification value, free fatty acid value, peroxide value, iodine value, melting point and moisture content of the palm kernel oil from both two processing methods. Both there is no significant difference (P>0.05) on both processing method of above named parameters.

        On the other hand, properties like freezing point has no significant difference (P>0.05) both on the storage time, processing method and interaction between storage time and processing method. While the interaction between storage time on the processing method had no significant difference (P>0.05) in all the parameters except melting point of the palm kernel oil. This shows that all the properties all increased with storage time of the palm kernel oil, both the little change in moisture content may be due to the changes in storage environment.

            Based on the results obtained from this work, and for the fact that the palm kernel oil extracted from fermented palm fruits had lower free fatty acid ranging from (1.907 to 6.900 MgKOH/g) compared to the palm kernel oil extracted from boiled palm fruits stored for 6 months which had higher free fatty acid ranging from (6.564 to 11.108 MgKOH/g) on the basis of this finding. It can be concluded that palm kernel oil extracted from fermented palm fruits process is preferable for edible purpose while palm kernel oil extracted from boiled palm fruits processing is preferable for soap making.
