Abstract:The main aim of this study was to explore the effects of microwave pre-treatment on quality of kenaf seed oil by observing the changes in oil yield, oxidative stability, fatty acid components, tocopherols, antioxidant activities and color intensity of kenaf seed oil. Microwave pre-treatment on kenaf seeds did affect the quality of the extracted oils. Microwave pre-treatment increased the extracted oil yields significantly (P < 0.05). Moreover, the roasted oils showed a significant increase in oxidati…
