keywords: Lipid profiles, processed, raw, Treculiaafricana


The following determinations were carried out on the raw and processed Treculiaafricana seed samples using standard analytical methods: crude fat, fatty acids, phytosterols and phospholipids analyses and the results were subjected to analysis of variance (ANOVA). The results were: crude fat range (g/100g): 10.4, raw dehulled flour (RDF), 2.75, roasted dehulled flour (RSDF) and 3.12, cooked dehulled flour (CDF); SFA range (% total fat): 20.3 – 33.6; MUFA, 32.1 – 38.4; total polyunsaturated unsaturated fatty acid (PUFA = DUFA + TUFA) was RDF (36.6%)
