Eight exotic seed fats (karanja, kusum, neem and aceituno oils, malabar tallow, kokum butter and mowrah and dika fats) have been subjected to pancreatic hydrolysis. From the original fatty acid compositions, and those of the monoglycerides produced by hydrolysis, the fatty acid distributions have been determined, and their probable glyceride compositions calculated.

The significance of the observed fatty acid distributions is discussed; and an expression relating the glyceride composition to the overall fatty acid composition is shown to give satisfactory agreement with the calculated values, for these, and other vegetable fats.
