Abstract

FATTY ACIDS, TOCOPHEROLS AND STEROLS PROFILES OF CUCUMEROPSIS EDULIS UNCONVENTIONAL OIL SEEDS

Wotto D.V. *, Yété P., Nonviho G., b Sessou P ., Sohounhloué D

ABSTRACT

The physicochemical properties, fatty acids, tocopherols, tocotrienols and phytosterols profiles of Cucumeropsis edulis oil seeds harvested in Benin have been undertaken in order to know its potential uses. The results revealed that this oil contained unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic (63.35%) and oleic (18.81%) acids. Unsaponifiables (1.85%) of the oil of Cucumeropsis edulis contained 141 mg/100g of phytosterols (of which 82.60% consisted of β-sitosterol), 86.9 mg/100g of tocopherols which are major with the alpha form (76.9%) and minors with tocotrienols. 0.35g/100g of phospholipids have been also quantified on the basis of the content in phosphor. The study indicates that this oil could be used as biofuel and in the fields of cosmetic and nutrition regarding its contents.

Keywords: unconventional oil seeds, Cucumeropsis edulis, fatty acids, tocopherols, phytosterols.
