In this study, chemical composition of the 17 different hazelnut varieties grown in the Black Sea Region of Turkey was investigated. The main fatty acids in hazelnut varieties were oleic (79.4%), linoleic (13.0%) and palmitic acid (5.4%). The ratios of polyunsaturated/ saturated and unsaturated/saturated fatty acids of hazelnuts varieties were found to be between 1.23 and 2.87, and 11.1 and 16.4, respectively. The average niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, ascorbic acid, folic acid… CONTINUE READING
