Abstract Oil seeds, an excellent source of good quality plant protein. Peanuts are one of the world's leading oil seed Crops. Most of Egypt production is classi· fied as food grade and is processed whole, whereas in other countries peanut are processed for oil and the residual meal is used in animal feed or fertilizer.

Youn~ and Waller r ll, Conkenon and Ory f2) studied the protein and amino acids of peanut in rhe United States. Also, Hokes and WonhinAton ( 3 l studied the structure of peanut oil in the United Stares. This paper presents the chemical composition of some peanut varieties which are cultivated and consumed in Egyp
