This study focuses on the effect of CPO toward respondent acceptance and its health benefit in Babakan, Dramaga, and Sukadamai Village Bogor District.

Acceptability analysis showed the respondent can accept CPO based on its colour (93%), taste (96%), and aroma (85%). By the consumption of 280 mL CPO will significantly increase RBP for 8,55% and 560 mL for 33,70-43,44% (α<0,05). The difference in CPO consumption is based on the difference in food consumption patten in each village and total family member who consumes CPO. Although CPO consumption is highly correlated to RBP increase (r=0,867, n=35,α<0.05). Thus, by consuming CPO is proven that it can help to fulfill retinol demand of respondents.
