Identification and Characterization of Fat Compositions Contained within Hexane Extracts of Canarium Seed Oils (Canarium Indicum L)
One of the plants producing fatty acids is a canary plant which is found everywhere in Alor Island, NTT province, Indonesia. This study aimed to determine the content and types of fatty acids of Canary seed oil (Canarium indicum L). The method used was extraction and continued by the GC-MS for fatty acid characterization. Results of the analysis showed that Canary seed oil contains saturated fatty acids and unsaturated fatty acids. The saturated fatty acids are palmitic acid and stearic acid while the unsaturated fatty acid is oleic acid.
