Total lipid contents of Acacia catechu, Lepidium sativum, Nigella sativa and Swetenia mohaganii seeds were 5.7, 13.8, 31.8 and 59.4%, dry weight on respectively. Neutral lipids were found to be predominant, while the glycolipids and phospholipids were present in lower quantities. Glycolipids consisted of monogalactosyl diglyceride, digalactosyldiglyceride, acylatedsterylgalactoside and sterylgalactoside, while the phospholipids comprised of phosphatidyl choline, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylinositol, candiolipin and phosphatidylglycerol. Lysophosphatidylethanolamine and lysophosphatidylcholine were present in small amounts.
