The Kreis test is a procedure for early detection of oxidative products of fats and oils. The reaction is complicated, sensitive and continuous. Kinetics of the Kreis test were studied as a function of reagent, phloroglucinol, oil quantity and incubation period for 3 oils [palm oil, rice bran oil, and groundnut oil] with different fatty acid profiles, storage life and composition other than triglycerides. A central composite rotatable design with each factor at 5 levels required 20 experiments for each oil. Results of experiments carried out in duplicate were examined by analysis of variance, and polynomials of appropriate degree were fitted to the data. The polyhedron search method was used to compute optimum conditions for carrying out the test for each oil. 3-dimensional graphs were generated to bring out the differences in the oils and the kinetics for each oil. Though compromised optimized conditions are reported, results indicate the necessity of more detailed investigation into the reaction.
