Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract The nutritive composition of Chenopodium album L. was determined and exploited for a new vegetable. Because there is high contents of vitamin C, 尾-carotene, trace elements such as Fe,Zn,Mn,Cu and 17 kinds of amino acids including 7 essential amino acids for the human body. The fat content of seeds is 16. 4% including palmitate,stearic acid,oleic acid, linoleic acid and linolenic acid,but linoleic acid and linolenic acid are the essential fatty acid for the human body, especially the content of linoleic acid attains 53. 86%. Further more,its biological characters and adaptability for circumstances are discussed. It occurs on disturbed sites and thrives on all soil types and over a wide range of soil pH. Preparatory methods for cooking are simple. Chenopodium album L. is regarded as a prospective wild vegetable and is worth in exploration and utilization.
