Taramira oil and meal were examined for chemical composition. Oil pressed from dehulled seed of 2 cv. (RTM-1 and RTM-2) contained, on average (% by wt.), 42.40 C22:1, 19.88 C18:1, 12.61 C20:1, 11.70 C18:3, 9.28 C18:2 and 3.76 C16:0. Dehulled kernels contained about 39% (dry wt. basis) of fat (RTM-1). The pungent flavour of taramira oil differs from that of mustard oil - taramira oil contains 4-thiomethyl-3-butenyl isothiocyanate as the predominant isothiocyanate, whereas mustard oil contains… 

Effect of Glucosinolates of Taramira (Eruca Sativa) Oilcake on Nutrient Utilization and Growth of Crossbred Calves

Similar dry matter Intake, nutrient digestibility and nitrogen balances as well as similar serum T 3 and T 4 levels and growth rate in all the groups indicated that taramira cake can replace 50 per cent crude protein of mustard cake in the diet of crossbred calves.


The present investigation was designed to study the physical and chemical properties of rocket seed oil. The obtained results indicated that rocket seed had high contents of protein (35.02%), oil

Effects of Eruca sativa seed oil on the histology of liver and kidney in rats

Daily administration of Eruca sativa seed oil at a dose 2 ml/kg B.W., for 4 weeks, could pathologically affect some vital internal organs, such as liver and kidneys causing alterations in their histological structure, so it is recommended to be used at low suitable dose.

Comparison of Different Genotypes of Rocket (Eruca sativa) in Terms of Chemical Compounds Extracted from Seeds and in the Callus Induced from Tissue Culture

A laboratory study was conducted to evaluate the oil contents and its fatty acids, total phenolic compounds and total flavonoid compounds in seed and callus induced from tissue culture of two rocket

Seed Germination and Seed Bank Dynamics of Eruca sativa (Brassicaceae): A Weed on the Northeastern Edge of Tibetan Plateau

As a versatile cruciferous species, Eruca sativa is widely cultivated, but in some areas, it has become an invasive weed. There are few studies on its seed dormancy and soil seed bank. This research

Taramira Seed Oil

Vegetable Fats and Oils

Molecular mechanisms that underlie the sexual stimulant actions of ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosocoe) and garden rocket (Eruca sativa L.)

Both extracts and sildenafil acted via an increase in cyclic GMP with an additional increase in dihydrotestosterone release in case of (C/H), which significantly increased the total sexual stimulation index and the index of successful mounting and ejaculation.

Biotechnology of Eruca Sativa Mill

These initial protocols represent a means of quickly adapting the inherent potential of this species to specific applications and markets and are a pool of genetic diversity for the economically important Brassica species.



The composition of seed and seed oils of taramira(Eruca sativa)

The seeds ofEruca sativa, commonly known as taramira, were found to contain 4.1% moisture, 27.8% oil, 27.4% protein and 6.6% ash. Atomic absorption spectrophotometric analysis indicated calcium and

The analysis of glucosinolates in Brassica species using gas chromatography. Direct determination of the thiocyanate ion precursors, glucobrassicin and neoglucobrassicin

A method using gas chromatography (g.c.) is described for the analysis of intact glucosinolates in Brassica leaf and seed material. Both glucobrassicin and neoglucobrassicin (indole glucosinolates)
