The oil palm fibre may provide potential alternative source of revenue for oil
palm industries and the abundance of this raw materials lead to this study of
incorporated it into the production of high fibre bread. The aims of this study
were to evaluate the feasibility of producing high fibre bread from oil palm
pericarp fibre that leads to an acceptable consumption. Toxicological
analysis of BSLA was performed onto the raw material of oil palm pericarp
fibre and also the finished product to detect the level of toxicant in different
concentration was the major concern. In addition, the heavy metals were
detected by using AAS. Several other methods were used in these studies
which was sensory evaluation, and also physical and chemical analysis.
Physical analysis was to measure the firmness of the bread and determined
the fibre content in finished product through chemical analysis. Statistical
Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to analyze the sample by
one way ANOVA and Duncan’s to evaluate the significant different between
formulations. In addition, the oil palm fibre can be incorporated into
production of high fibre bread which was safe to be consuming with an
improvement in the bread for better acceptability by the consumers.
