    Soybean [ Glycine max (L.) Merr.] is an important oilseed crop which produces about 30 % of the world's edible vegetable oil. The quality of soybean oil is determined by its fatty acid composition. Soybean oil high in oleic and low in linolenic fatty acids is desirable for human consumption and...

    High oleic acid soybeans were produced by combining mutant FAD2- 1A and FAD2- 1B genes. Despite having a high oleic acid content, the linolenic acid content of these soybeans was in the range of 4-6 %, which may be high enough to cause oxidative instability of the oil. Therefore, a study was...

    Seed oil triacylglycerol (TAG) composition of 32 soybean varieties were determined and compared using 1H-NMR. The contents of linolenic (Ln), linoleic (L), and oleic (O) ranged from 10.7% to 19.3%, 37.4%-50.1%, and 15.7%-34.1%, respectively. As is evident, linoleic acid was the major fatty acid...
