Fatty acid profile and quality assessment of safflower ( Carthamus tinctorius ) oil

  title={Fatty acid profile and quality assessment of safflower ( Carthamus tinctorius ) oil},
  author={MB Katkade and HM Syed and RR Andhale and M. D. Sontakke},
The present investigation was undertaken with the objective to study the different physico-chemical properties, fatty acid profile by GC and total tocopherol by HPLC of the safflower oil. The different physical properties as density, specific gravity, refractive index and viscosity whilst, chemical properties iodine value, peroxide value, saponification value and acid value were determined. Color by Hunter Color Flex meter showed the highest reading for the lightness L* (45.24). The fatty acid…

The performance of nine safflower genotypes was estimated for the physical properties of seeds, chemical, and physiochemical characteristics of seed oil. They are with different response to most
Selenium in Germinated Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) Increases the Stability of Its Oil Fraction
Results suggest that Se-enriched chickpea sprouts could represent an excellent source of oil with a high OSI and CAA, associated with a reduction in LOX activity and an increase in phenolics, respectively.
The Balancing of Safflower Oil and Inositol to Intestinal Morphometric of Sentul Chicken
This study was aimed to evaluate the use of safflower oil (Carthamus tinctorius L) and inositol on the digestive profile of male Sentul chickens. A total of 182 Sentul chickens aged 17 weeks were
Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Potentials of Seed Oil from Carthamus tinctorius L. in the Management of Skin Injuries
A notable antioxidant capacity was demonstrated for the tested oil that exhibited moreover high antibacterial effects by both bacteriostatic and bactericidal pathways including lysozyme activity.
A Metabolic Perspective and Opportunities in Pharmacologically Important Safflower
This review focuses on several metabolite-based working techniques and updates to provide a summary of the current medical applications of safflower.
Insights into the yellowing of drying oils using fluorescence spectroscopy
Drying oils are commonly used in paintings and are prone to yellow discolouration from aging. Although there are numerous studies aimed at understanding their chemical composition, the yellowing
Supplementing safflower oil (Carthamus Tinctori L) and inocytol in feed and its effect
Investigating the effect of safflower oil (Carthamus tinctorius L) and inositol on the quality of Sentul chicken eggs. Eight one 16-week female Sentul chickens were distributed to 81 units of battery
The effect of safflower oil (Carthamus Tinctorius L.) and inositol supplementation on egg production
The study aimed to examine the effect of safflower oil and inositol supplementation in a feed on egg production performance and feed conversion ratio of Sentul chickens. The research was conducted


Characteristics and Oxidative Stability of Some Safflower (CarthamusTinctorius L.)
The results indicated that safflower seeds contain a high content of edable oil which consider agood source of an essential linoleic fatty acid.
Studies on the Characterization and Glyceride Composition of Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius) Seed Oil
Studies were carried out on the characterization and glyceride compositions of safflower ( Carthamus tinctorius ) seed oil. It was observed that safflower seed grown under the soil and climatic
Characterization and quality assessment of mechanically and solvent extracted Niger ( Guizotia abyssinica ) Seed oil
In the present study an attempt was made to evaluate physico-chemical and nutritional quality of mechanically and solvent extracted niger seed oil. SE exhibited higher yield of niger seed oil
Physico-chemical, Sensory and Aromatic Properties of Cold Press Produced Safflower Oil
In this study, seeds from the safflower variety called “Dinçer” were roasted and microwaved before oil extraction by cold pressing. Some physico-chemical analyses (moisture, ash, oil content and
Estimation of total free fatty acid and cholesterol content in some commercial edible oils in Ethiopia, Bahir DAR
There is no cholesterol free oil in the market as opposed to what is claimed on the vegetable oil brand labels, and companies producing and marketing vegetable oils are enjoined to desist from misleading the public by labeling their products as “cholesterol free”.
Safflower, its development and utilization
Safflower oil with approximately 75% linoleic acid and less than 10% saturated acids compares quite advantageously with other liquid oils for use as a dietary supplement and with the proper use of antioxidants, good flavor stability and resistance to oxidative deterioration is achieved.
Predicting temperature-dependence viscosity of vegetable oils from fatty acid composition
The viscosities of 12 vegetable oils were experimentally determined as a function of temperature (5 to 95°C) by means of a temperature-controlled rheometer. Viscosities of the oil samples decreased
Normal phase high-performance liquid chromatography method for the determination of tocopherols and tocotrienols in cereals.
A fast procedure for the determination of tocopherols and tocotrienols (tocols) in cereal foods was developed and the results have been compared with those found by direct extraction without saponification.
