Abstract

Amaranth oil, Avocado oil, Cashew nut shell oil, Castor oil, Coconut oil, Corn/Maize oil, Cottonseed oil, Cumin oil, Fish oil, Groundnut oil, Linseed oil, Mustard oil, Neem oil, Olive oil, Palm oil, Pomegranate seed oil, Psyllium seed oil, Rice bran oil, Safflower oil, Sesame oil, Soybean oil, Sunflower oil, Wheat germ oil are a natural source of fatty acids, nutraceuticals and mainly Tocopherol – Vitamin ‘E’. They play important role with various medicinal properties like Anti-oxidant, Cholesterol reducing agent etc. and are present in the derivative fractions of oils. Hence, complete range of plant oils and their derivatives were selected as a part of raw material to explore the details of biochemical profile, fatty acids profile and nutraceutical profile and mainly quantity of Tocopherol.
