1 Linoleic acid was the most prevalent fatty acid, ranging from 31% to 51% of the fatty acids profile, very similar to soybean oil profile. Technol. The tree was figured and described in 1592 by Prosper Alpinus under the name 'agihalid'. In most oils, the level of free fatty acid which causes deterioration is noticed when the %FFA calculated as oleic acid falls within the range of 0.5% - 1.5% [23]. Balanites aegyptiaca is used for firewood, charcoal, poles, tim- ber, utensils, tool handle, food, fodder (Elseed et al., 2002), mulch, shade, windbreak and gum (Guinand et al., 2001). Die jeweils vier Tocopherole (T) und Tocotrienole (T3) sowie Plastochromanol-8 (P-8) und BHA wurden bei der HPLC an einer Diol-Säule durch Elution mit n-Hexan/tert-Butylmethylether (96 + 4, v/v) vollständig voneinander getrennt. It was removed, kept at room temperature for 24 hours then analyzed. The antioxidant behavior of tocopherols represents a complex phenomenon as they are efficient antioxidants at low concentrations but they gradually lose efficacy as their concentrations in the vegetable oils increase. A 1 Acid value was determined to quantify the fatty acid found in the oil as it measures the free fatty acids of oil. The iodine values of the oils were remarkably decreased. − A Potential New Source of Edible Oil: Review. They are formulated not as medicines but simply to smoothen, moisturize and soften the skin. Fatty acids methyl esters of the oil were prepared by dissolving 0.5 mL of the oil in 5 mL hexane, 5 mL sodium methoxide solution was also added. Totalalkali The total oil content of the nuts ranged from 64.2 to 68.9% while the stability of the The aim of this study was to assess the suitability of Desert date (Balanites aegyptiaca L. Delile) as an oil crop in arid lands for large-scale sustainable industrial biodiesel production. = = Methods employed included determination of fatty acid composition, iodine value (IV), peroxide value (PV), conjugated dienes (CD), para-ansidine value (p-AV) and 2-thiobarbituric acid (TBA) value. The implication of high moisture content in soap is that the excess water could possibly react with any unsaponified neutral fat to give free fatty acid and glycerol in a process called hydrolysis of soap on storage [30]. × For maximum temperature, the product was placed in the oven at 45˚C for 24 hours, removed and also kept at room temperature for 24 hours then analyzed for colour, odour, PH, viscosity, texture and signs of separation. Creaming is one of the first signs of impending emulsion instability and should be taken seriously. This also was done in triplicate after which the average was calculated. A low peroxide value as seen in our study increases the suitability of the oil for a long storage due to low level of oxidative and lipolytic activities [27]. Seed oils have been used for centuries by rural communities as food, medicine, for cosmetic applications and as fuel. Using an expeller at 115 degrees C, about 85% of the kernel oil was recovered. However, after Canola quality Indian mustard (Brassica juncea) is also being developed for cultivation in hot and low-rainfall areas of the country where canola does not perform well. Analyses of antinutrient composition show that processing significantly reduced the levels of oxalate, tannins, phytate, trypsin inhibitor, and hydrogen cyanide contents of V. subterranea. It was then placed in the oven at 105˚C for 24 hrs. The specific gravity of the oil was determined by conventional method. 100. After exhaustive extraction the content of the round bottom flask was transferred into a quick fit flask of a rotary evaporator and oil separated from the solvent. Microwaved sunflower seeds (Helianthus annuus L.) of two varieties, KL-39 and FH-330, were extracted using n-hexane. 1 The oil is consisted on four major fatty acids: palmitic (16:0), stearic (18:0), oleic (18:1), and linoleic (18:2), constituting 98-100% of the total fatty acids in the oil of all tested genotypes. Regarding the FA composition % The plant may be grown for its fiber, oil and for medicinal values; it is also used in treatment of several diseases and disorders since ages. < Thus it can be a good source of raw material for many oil based products (soap, shampoo, bio-diesel, lubricants, etc.). The results showed remarkable biological activity of Balanites aegyptiaca fixed oil and proved its importance as natural bioactive source. Balanites aegyptiaca Del. The milled seed kernel (200 g) was packed in the thimble; 250 ml of petroleum ether (boiling point 60˚C - 80˚C) was transferred into a 500 ml round bottom flask which was place on a heating mantle and temperature maintained at 80˚C. 0.05 American Oil Chemists' Society (AOCS). Iodine value is the measure of the degree of the unsaturation of the oil. T The authors declare no conflicts of interest. The extraction process basically comprises of five fundamental steps: thermal conditioning of the seeds; milling; extraction by boiling; oil recovery; and drying. It is hardy to zone (UK) 10. Table 1. This was to allow for complete addition reaction between the double bonds of the oil and the liberated iodine to a pale yellow colour. The method was verified. Thereafter, it was increased at 4˚C/min to 215˚C, and then held at 215˚C for 35 min., the total runs were 86 minutes. to the roasting. The saponification value of the oil is 200.02 ± 0.12 168.67 mg KOH/g which is comparable to the values of certain vegetable oils like; sesame, neem, groundnut, palm fruit and soya beans, while iodine value (104.39 ± 0.00) in the present work is within the range for sesame seed (Table 2). < Note: LE―light exposure, CI―creaming index. The solvent extraction was done using soxhlets apparatus and petroleum ether as the solvent. = Phytic acid content was relatively high compared to other legumes. w The acid value of Balanites aegyptiaca seed kernel oil was 2.14 ± 0.28 mg KOH/g while free fatty acids value was 0.82 ± 0.01 mg KOH/g. Their characteristics and uses, Phytochemical investigation and medicinal evaluation of fixed oil of Balanites aegyptiaca fruits (Balantiaceae), Desert date (Balanites aegyptiaca) as an arid lands sustainable bioresource for biodiesel, Physical, morphological and chemical characteristics, oil recovery and fatty acid composition of Balanites aegyptiaca Del. Organic rapeseed oil, the second best source of plant sterols, contained 887 mg/100 g. The variations of the total tocol and sterol contents in 10 rapeseed oil sub-samples analysed separately were 9.7% for tocols and 9.9% for sterols in refined rapeseed oil, and 6.3% for tocols and 4.2% for sterols, respectively, in cold-pressed rapeseed oil. Balanites aegyptiaca (Balantiaceae), mainly the fruit, is used by traditional healers and herbalists for treating many diseases in Africa and Asia. Ximenia americana seed oil (XSO) and Balanites aegyptiaca seed oil (BSO) were soxhlet extracted and characterized. C s In addition to the target compounds, plastochromanol-8 could be determined in all plant-based samples with contents ranging from 0.13 (walnut oil) to 18 mg/100 g (linseed oil). s The result was also comparable with two other common soaps found in the market (Standard 1 and 2). Studies on the potential of Balanites aegyptiaca seed oil as raw material for the production of liquid cleansing agents. At this point, a few drops of starch indicator solution were added and titrated against standard 0.1N Sodium thiosulphate to a blue end point. 56.10 All rights reserved. b = Volume (mL) of thiosulphate used for the test. 50 mL of the oil sample was placed in a beaker, neutralized methylated spirit (0.1 M NaOH was added to methylated spirit to a pink colour and then heated) was added to the oil sample and heated on a hot plate for 1.0 min.
