    Consumers are using tree nut oils in food preparations more frequently these days, partially due to the health benefits associated with these specialty oils. Limited research exists in nutritional databases about the lipid constituents – namely the fatty acids, phytosterols, and vitamin E contents – of these oils. This paper reports on the characterization of these constituents in raw and roasted tree nut oils available commercially.

    Natural stilbenes such as polydatin and resveratrol have not yet been known as inhibitors of desaturases. We found that they alter the fatty acid composition in microorganisms containing PUFA (algae) by inhibiting Δ4 desaturase and thus blocking the biosynthesis of specific PUFAs. Inhibition of Δ4 desaturase produces oils with a higher proportion of DPA. Moreover, these compounds increase yeast resistance to ethanol.

  5. The lignan (+)-secoisolariciresinol extracted from flax hulls is an effective protectant of linseed oil and its emulsion against oxidative damage

    Secoisolariciresinol, a natural antioxidant lignan accumulated in large amounts in the seedcoat of flax is here presented as an effective protectant of both bulk oil and o/w emulsion against secondary oxidation products, which makes it a potential alternative preservative for oily products in foods and cosmetics.
