Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract The chemical composition of bitter almond, plum and mango kernels and the physico-chemical characteristics of their lipids were studied. Bitter almond and plum kernels contained higher amounts of lipids in comparison to mango kernels. All kernel lipids were found free from hydrocyanic acid. The predominant lipid class of the studied kernel lipids was triglycerides. Oleic acid was the major fatty acid present in bitter almond and plum kernel lipids, while mango kernel lipids were rich in stearic and oleic acid.
