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… 

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 these

Fatty acids profile of pulp and nuts of Brazilian fruits

Fruits and nuts from the North and Northeast regions of Brazil were collected to determine the fatty acid profile of their oils. The species studied were Brazil (Bertholletia excelsa H.B.K.), Mucaja

PHYSICOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES AND COMPOSITION OF LIPID FRACTION OF SELECTED EDIBLE NUTS

The study presents the characteristics of oil fraction of 8 types of edible nuts available on the Polish market. All tested nuts were characterized with high content of dry matter. Fatty acid and

Chemical composition of pine nut (Pinus pinea L.) grown in three geographical macrozones in Chile

ABSTRACT Mediterranean pine nuts are recognized for their high nutritional value and healthy benefits. The aim of the study was to analyze the composition of pine nuts harvested from Pinus pinea L.

Comparison of Oil Content and Fatty Acids Profile of Western Schley, Wichita, and Native Pecan Nuts Cultured in Chihuahua, Mexico

TLDR
There are statistically significant differences in the chemical composition of the pecan nuts oils extracted from the varieties cultured in Chihuahua, Mexico, and those cultivated in other regions of the world.

Online LC-GC-based analysis of minor lipids in various tree nuts and peanuts.

TLDR
There were considerable differences between the various nut types not only regarding the contents, but also the compositions of both classes.

Fatty acid profile, tocopherol, squalene and phytosterol content of walnuts, almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts and the macadamia nut

TLDR
The data indicate that all five nuts are a good source of monounsaturated fatty acid, tocopherols, squalene and phytosterols.

Lipid composition and oxidative stability of oils in hazelnuts (Corylus avellana L.) grown in New Zealand

Hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) samples were collected from six different cultivars of trees grown in an experimental orchard at Lincoln University. Three U.S. commercial cultivars (Butler, Ennis, and

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.

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.

Fatty acid composition of mexican pine nut (Pinus cembroides) oil from three seed coat phenotypes

Fatty acids from oils extracted from three seed coat phenotypes of Mexican stone pines (Pinus cembroides Zuc) growing in the central region of Veracruz State, Mexico, consisted of lauric (0-4.8%),

Partial replacement of saturated fatty acids with almonds or walnuts lowers total plasma cholesterol and low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol.

TLDR
Compared with the reference diet there were significant reductions in total and LDL cholesterol, 7% and 10%, respectively, after supplementation with almonds, and 5% and 9% after supplementationwith walnuts.

Effect of a diet high in monounsaturated fat from almonds on plasma cholesterol and lipoproteins.

TLDR
When the consumption of nuts high in MUFA increases the fat content of the diet, reduction rather than elevation of plasma cholesterol has to be expected, possibly due to the MUFA content of these nuts.
