Abstract

1. The anacagüitas seed contains 2 oils. One is present in the fatty covering of the husk and other in the kernel; the first accounts for 3.8 percent and the second for 12 percent of the dried weight of the whole seed. 2. The principal characteristics of these two oils were determined. Both are nondrying oils. 3. The kernel oil contained 74.52 percent of oleic, 12.20 percent of myristic, and 9.30 of palmitic acid.
