Oil fatty acid composition was investigated in 165 sesame cv. from various countries. Cv. from Korea and USA were low in palmitic and stearic acids and high in linoleic acid. Unsaturated fatty acid content was higher in cv. from temperate regions than in those from tropical regions and were also higher in late than in early-maturing cv., yellow-seeded than in white-seeded cv. and in cv. setting 3 capsules than in cv. setting single capsules. A significant negative correlation was found between unsaturated and saturated fatty acid contents.
