Variations in oil, fatty acid and tocopherol contents of some Labiateae and Umbelliferae seed oils

Matthäus, Bertrand GND; Özcan, M.M.; Al Juhaimi, F.Y.

In this study, the oil content, fatty acid and tocopherol contents of the seeds of some selected Labiateae and Umbelliferae species from Turkey were determined. The total lipid of the studied plant seeds were found between 12.74 (Hyssopus officinalis) to 28.95% (Pimpinella anisum). The highest percentages of oleic acid was determined in Coriandrum sativum (79.2%), Foenicum vulgare (sweet) var. dulce (70.7%), Petroselinum crispum (68.9%), P. anisum (59.3%) and Cuminum cyminum (54.2%). Linoleic acid was determined as the major constituent of all the seed oils (except in F. vulgare and P. crispum seed oils). Linolenic acid in both family seed oils was generally found to be lower than 1.0%, except in a few samples like Satureja hortensis (60.4%), H. officinalis (50.7%), Lavandula angustifolia (64.8%) and Melissa officinalis (53.9%)
