ABSTRACT:While non-maturated seed contain 641 mg/kg P, 8834 K, 8523 Ca and 3477 mg/kg Mg, maturated seed of D. tenuifolia contained 4343 P, 82137 K, 10797 Ca and 4630 mg /kg Mg. Crude protein contents of seeds were found as 33% (non-maturated) and 32% (maturated). Oil content of maturated and non-maturated seeds was determined as 35% and 34%, respectively. Total flavonoids and phenolic contents of non-maturated and maturated seeds of D.tenuifolia were found as 875-1159 mg catechol /g and 661-856 mg Gallic Acid/ g (dw), respectively. While non-maturated contains 11.7% palmitic, 3.5% stearic, 5.3% palmitoleic, 30.6% oleic, 3.8% erucic, 31.1% linoleic and 7.2% linolenic, maturated seed oil contained 10.8% palmitic, 3.9% stearic, 2.3% palmitoleic, 30.1% oleic, 6.6% erucic, 34.9% linoleic and 8.3% linolenic acids.
