Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract Fatty acid composition of Globe Artichoke (Cynara scolymus L.) oil was analysed by GLC. The principal constituents of this oil are stearic acid (6.59%), Palmitic acid (1.35%), Oleic acid (41.6%) and Linoleic acid (50.33%). This oil is thus composed of about 91 per cent essential polyunsaturated and 9 per cent saturated fatty acids. Thus, the high ratio of polyunsaturated to saturated fatty acids makes the oil an excellent dietary oil.
