Compositional Properties

Summary: Camelina lecithin was obtained by water and enzymatic degumming. The major phospholipid in camelina lecithin was phosphatidylinositol. Enzyme-degummed camelina lecithin contained more lysophospholipids. Enzyme-degummed camelina lecithin generated more stable emulsions. Results showed that camelina seed lecithin is a promising alternative PI-rich emulsifier for various food applications. Link: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0308814617314176

The antioxidant activities of Camelina sativa methanolic extracts were evaluated by different chemical assays: reducing power, 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) assay, the b-carotene bleaching method and the metal chelating activity assay. Results revealed that besides the total phenolic content and antioxidant activity, seeds and cake also possess a similar phenolic profile. In addition to sinapine and 4-vinyl derivatives, other antioxidants were successfully ...

Summary: Camelina is an ancient cruciferous crop which is showing highly valuable ingredients and agronomical traits and could be an alternative for non-food usages. Via HPLC analyses a total of three sulfinyl-glucosinolates were determined in the seeds of Camelina. The mean glucosinolate content of ten genotypes grown at seven locations in Germany varied from 18.0 to 31.4 μmol/g dry seed. ...

Summary: Glucosinolate (GLS) content in Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz and its relatives C. microcarpa, C. alyssum, C. rumelica and C. hispida was investigated. With the exception of C. hispida in which GSL3 was absent, in all remaining species, three characteristic glucosinolates (GSL1, GSL2 and GSL3) were identified. Camelina genotypes of spring type (C. sativa CAM134, C. alyssum CAM21) showed a ...

Summary: Fatty acid profiles, tocopherol, and tocotrienol contents, total lipid contents, and trypsin inhibitor activity were quantitated from thirteen accessions of camelina (Camelina sativa L. Crantz), a little-known oilseed. The oil content of camelina seeds ranged from 29.9 to 38.3%. Camelina seeds did not contain [g-glucans. Trypsin units inhibited ranged from 12 to 28 compared to 111 for raw soybean. ...
