  • Refined palm fatty acid is of high quality if FFA does not exceed the value of 40 %, impurities do not exceed the value of 0.50%, and water does not exceed the value of 1.0%

Sampling: Samples are taken directly at the manufacturer´s premises in order to analyse the content of FFA and MIU in the refined fatty acid being purchased. Samples are taken for each transport unit separately before it is dispatched to customers. Samples are taken from each separate section individually. Samples are taken from the bottom, middle and top parts. One combined sample is produced out of these individual samples. Before dispatch to customers, the values must correspond with the declared quality.
