The Nutritive Value of Palm Kernel Cake for Animal Feed


In Malaysia, most of the PKC produced are from expeller extraction. Though solvent extraction is also used in the extraction of palm kernel oil but the process is costly and screw press extraction (expeller) is the rule in many palm oil processing plants. The difference in the quality of expeller PKC and solvent extracted is small, although in general expeller PKC contains more oil (4%-8%) than solvent extracted PKC (1%-2%). In this paper, PKC refers to expeller palm kernel cake.
