Apple seeds, a common byproduct of apple processing, have been examined for their overall proximate composition, fatty acid and amino acid composition of the lipid and protein components, respectively, as well as their key mineral constituents. Proximate analysis indicated that apple seeds are rich in oil content and protein ranging from 27.5 to 28% and 33.8 to 34.5% respectively, comparing favorably with oilseeds. GC analysis indicated high levels of linoleic acid (~49%) with the other…

Characterization of apple seeds and their oils from the cider-making industry
Apple seeds and their oils from an agro-food waste, derived from the cider industry protected by the Designation of Origin “Sidra de Asturias”, were chemically characterized. The average oil yield
Prospects of fatty acid profile and bioactive composition from lipid seeds for the discrimination of apple varieties with the application of chemometrics
TLDR
Both oil fractions could be applied as a useful tool to discriminate among the apple seed varieties by GC-MS.
Comparison of fatty acid profiles and contents of seed oils recovered from dessert and cider apples and further Rosaceous plants
TLDR
Seeds resulting from the processing of apple, pear, quince, chokeberry, and rose hip into juices, jellies, and jams may serve as a promising source for the recovery of nutritionally valuable edible oils.
Characterization of apple seed oil with Denomination of Origin from Asturias, Spain
The content and composition of lipids isolated from the seeds of seven apple species from Asturias (Spain) were characterized. The highest content in oil corresponded to Collao (22.73±0.81 g·100 g -1

SUMMARY: The content and composition of lipids isolated from the seeds of seven apple species from Asturias (Spain) were characterized. The highest content in oil corresponded to Collao (22.73±0.81
Apple (Malus pumila) Seed Oil
Apple (Malus pumila) is one of the most common sweet fruits consumed by humans either directly in fresh or in processed form. Apple has an impressive range of medicinal benefits due to its rich level
Assessing the Fatty Acid, Carotenoid, and Tocopherol Compositions of Seeds from Apple Cultivars (Malus domestica Borkh.) Grown in Norway
TLDR
The Norwegian apple cultivars Håkonseple, Kviteple, Tolleivseple, Vinterrosenstrips, and Tokheimseple are recommended for obtaining vegetable oil due to their high oil contents, while cultivar Sureple Grøn can be separated due to its high levels of β-carotene, lycopene and total tocopherols.
Nutritional and Health-Related Effects of a Diet Containing Apple Seed Meal in Rats: The Case of Amygdalin
TLDR
Dietary supplementation with apple seed meal can exert beneficial effects on the intestinal tract, blood lipid profile and antioxidant status of rats, and in most cases, these effects are not limited by the presence of amygdalin.
Fatty acids composition of some vegetable oils obtained in the west area of Romania
In this study was investigated the fatty acid composition of some vegetable oils: walnut (Juglans regia L.), soybean (Glycine max ), apple (Malus domestica) and pumpkin seed (Cucurbita maxima) in the
