Purpose
Our country is currently facing different problems, like finding alternatives on our daily needs. One of the main problems of our country is finding an alternative source of cooking oil and as we all know, the price of commodities such as cooking oil keep on increasing every year. Because of this, we came up with this research of using malunggay as alternative vegetable cooking oil to enable people to use cheaper alternative regular vegetable cooking oil. This research will enable people to make cheaper cooking oil. Procedure

In this research, we can use malunggay leaves or seeds, either way is possible. If you will use malunggay seeds, you will do the traditional methods of extracting oil from oil seed crops that involve extracting kernels, pounding them and boiling them in water for five minutes. If you will use malunggay leaves, you will also boil them in water for five minutes. The next step will be the same for both methods. After boiling, drain it through a cloth into a clean container. Leave overnight to allow the oil to separate from the water. There may be some debris floating on the surface of the oil. Conclusion

With these evidences, we will be able to create cheaper vegetable cooking oil that will be very helpful to every citizen of our country. We believe that this research will be very successful and will bring answers to our problems, economical and financial. It will also help our country to rise up from poverty.
