Abstract

The composition of laurel berry fat produced in Turkey was studied by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. Of the 20 fatty acids occurring in acidic fraction lauric acid (54.2 %), oleic acid (15.1 %) and linoleic acid (17.2 %) were found to be dominating constituents. Some minor components identified in the unsaponifiable fraction, i. e. undecanone, alpha-terpineol, terpinyl acetate, beta-elemene, and beta-sitosterol, have not previously been reported in laurel berry fat.
