Abstract

Palm oil is a vegetable oil extracted from the pulp of the palm oil fruit. It comes in crude or refined form. It is an oil which caused controversy due to lack of enough information on its use. Our study has shown that moderate consumption of palm oil, that do not exceed 15% of food content, over 28 days does not cause a significant increase in body mass in young rats. Similarly, the lack of significance in the indices of food intake, digestibility, protein efficiency and energy balance, among control and experimental groups of the rats confirmed that palm oil is good for nutrition when its consumption is moderate. However, our study showed that moderate consumption of palm oil does not affect the total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol levels in young. While, moderate consumption of crude palm showed a significant increase in triglyceride rates but refined palm oil does not increase significantly triglyceride rates. Finally, our study showed that moderate consumption of palm oil does not cause a massive accumulation of the oil in the liver. This leads to say that palm oil is not the matter, but the way of consuming palm oil that could be a risk of metabolic syndromes.
