Characteristics of guindilla (Valenzuela trinervis Bert.) oil

Abstract

Seed of Guindilla (Valenzuela trinervis Bert.) and its oil were characterized. On a dry weight basis, the seed consists of 56% hull and seed coat and 44% cotyledon, containing about 67.0% lipids. The main fatty acids are: 62.3% oleic, 12.9% gadoleic, 10.1% linoleic and 9.6% palmitic. Physical properties of oil, expressed by hand press, include: melting point, −6 to −2 C; iodine value, 75.1; saponification value, 192; and unsaponifiable matter, 0.8%.
