Comparing the effects of conventional and microwave roasting methods for bioactive composition and the sensory quality of cold-pressed orange seed oil

This study aims to report the composition of bioactives and volatile aromatic compounds, and determine the descriptive sensory properties of cold-pressed orange seed oil. The effects of oven pre-roasting and microwave pre-roasting of the seeds before cold pressing were compared. Thirteen sensory parameters were used to define the oil samples. The major bioactive components of the orange seed oils were naringin, hesperidin, and trans-ferulic acid. Flavonoids constituted the main phenolic class with 78.5% and 74.4%, followed by phenolic acids with 21.4% and 25.5% in the oven and microwave pre-roasted oil samples. The mean concentration of hesperidin and naringin varied from 903.4 to 909.6 mg/kg and from 234.3 to 299.8 mg/kg, respectively. The results showed for the first time in the literature that orange seed oil contains some volatile aromatic compounds and glycosylated flavanones that could have functional properties. Hence, cold-pressed orange seed oil could be suggested as the new potential health-promoting oil.
