Gamma linolenic acid in seeds of black currant ribes nigrum red currant ribes rubrum and gooseberry ribes uva crispa
The content of fatty acids in the seeds of black currant, red currant and gooseberry were determined by gas chromatography. The aim was variety evaluation for manufacture of nutritional valuable plant oils. For black currants, red currants and gooseberries the ranges of the content of .gamma.-linolenic acid (.gamma.C18:3) were 600-1300, 250-850 and 100-400 gram per ton of fresh fruits respectively. The yield in g/ton was determined by use of the percentage of .gamma.C18:3 in the fat of the seeds and of the percentage of seeds in the berries. The varieties 'Roodknop' and 'Ben Lomond' of black currant recommended for commerical orchards in Denmark have yield potential of about 1000 g .gamma.C18:3 per ton of fresh fruit. The new varieties 'Ben Alder' and 'Ben Tirran' may yield about 1300 g .gamma.C18:3 per ton of fresh fruit.
