Tocopherols are an important dietary constituent with high antioxidant properties and serve as a first line of defense in human beings protecting membranes from lipid peroxidation. The objective of this study was to compare the fatty acid composition and tocopherols of twenty soybean genotypes grown under different environments. Averaged over twenty genotypes, the minimum value for palmitic, stearic… CONTINUE READING
