Nuts contain bioactive constituents that elicit cardio-protective effects including phytosterols, tocopherols and squalene. The objective of the present study was to determine the total oil content, peroxide value, fatty acid composition and levels of tocopherols, squalene and phytosterols in oil extracted from freshly ground brazil, pecan, pine, pistachio and cashew nuts. The total oil content of the nuts ranged from 40.4 to 60.8% (w/w) while the peroxide values ranged from 0.14 to 0.22 mEq O2… Expand
Changes in Fatty Acid, Tocopherol and Xanthophyll Contents During the Development of Tunisian-Grown Pecan Nuts
Among oil compounds, fatty acids, tocopherols and xanthophylls (lutein and zeaxanthin) are of special interest due to their nutritional properties. The identification and quantification of theseExpand

Phytosterols, phytostanols, and their conjugates in foods: structural diversity, quantitative analysis, and health-promoting uses.
TLDR
Phytosterols and phytostanols have received much attention in the last five years because of their cholesterol-lowering properties and the popularity of these products has caused the medical and biochemical community to focus much attention on phytosterol research activity. Expand
Nuts and their bioactive constituents: effects on serum lipids and other factors that affect disease risk.
TLDR
Results suggest that there are non-fatty acid constituents in nuts that have additional cholesterol-lowering effects and further studies are needed to identify these constituents and establish their relative cholesterol- Lowering potency. Expand
A monounsaturated fatty acid-rich pecan-enriched diet favorably alters the serum lipid profile of healthy men and women.
TLDR
Nuts such as pecans that are rich in monounsaturated fat may therefore be recommended as part of prescribed cholesterol-lowering diet of patients or habitual diet of healthy individuals. Expand

TLDR
Twenty-four growing pigs were used in 19-day metabolism trial to determine the effect of n-3/medium-chain triacylglyceride (MCT)-structured triacyLglycerid on plasma and tissue lipid profiles, which reflected dietary fatty acid profiles. Expand
Squalene but not n-3 fatty acids protect against hydrogen peroxide-induced sister chromatid exchanges in Chinese hamster V79 cells
TLDR
Results indicate that squalene was more effective than EPA and DHA in protecting against H2O2-induced SCE, and pre-treatment withSqualene significantly decreased the frequency of SCE induced by H2 O2. Expand
