The total lipidic content and the distribution of fatty acids in twenty edible wild plants in S.E. Spain was determined by GC. The lipidic content was higher than usual in the common vegetables. The high ratio of the omega 3 series of unsaturated fatty acids relative to the omega 6 series demonstrates the good nutritional qualities of these plants.
Nutritional (ascorbic acid, dehydroascorbic acid and carotenes); antinutritional and toxic components (oxalic acid, nitrate and erucic acid) were determined in sixteen popular species of wild edible plants which are collected for human consumption in southeast Spain. Ascorbic + dehydroascorbic acids contents were very high in several species, especially in(More)
