The local communities apply the pulp as an anti-inflammatory and against liver disorders.
To extract the pulp oil in a traditional way, the pulp mass is boiled at low heat (without water) and the mass removed while the oil melts. B.Th. pulp and kernel oil, along with the peel, is used in the manufacturing of soap.
Pequi oil is rich in fatty acids and boasts a high content of vitamin A, C and many B, as well as phytosterols, sitosterol, stigmasterol and lanosterol. Squale and selenium are obtained in concentrations of 64mg and 0,7mg per 100g respectively.

However, the Piquiá kernel is not very common due to the difficulty in removing the endocarp. The seed oil obtained is white-yellow in color, solid and of an agreeable taste and smell.
