The composition and quality of six refined edible oils in Khartoum State, Sudan was evaluated. The oils analyzed were Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.); groundnut (Arachis hypogea L); cottonseed (Gossypium barbadense L.); sunflower, (Helianthus annuus L.); corn (Zea mays L.) and olive (Olea europaea L.). Both physical and chemical properties and acid profile of the six oils were determined. The results showed that all properties values vary among the six refined oils and are within the permissible limits for human consumption.
