Soybean oil quality as influenced by planting site and variety
- 35 Downloads
Seven soybean genotypes were grown in various locations in Illinois and Missouri. Crude oils were analyzed for fatty acid composition, total phospholipid, free fatty acids, iron and peroxide value. Of the seven varieties examined, William’s beans showed significant differences in total oil, protein, and fatty acid composition relative to planting sites. Evidence was obtained that crude oil from beans grown on irrigated land were higher in polyunsaturated fatty acids and lower in iron contents compared to those grown on nonirrigated land.
