Seed oils of Phalaris canariensis extracted by ultrasonication and cold maceration were evaluated for their physical characteristics, fatty acid, sterol composition and total phenol contents as well as for their antioxidant, antibacterial and acetylcholinesterase activities. The physicochemical properties of ultrasonication and cold maceration oils respectively were: acid values (4 and 3.25) mg KOH/g, peroxide values (5.53 and 4.41) meq O2 Kg-1, iodine values (88.83 and 95.17) g/100 g of oil… Expand
