Perilla oil -


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perilla_oil


>>> Perilla oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from perilla seeds. Having a distinct nutty aroma and taste, the oil pressed from the toasted perilla seeds is used as a flavor enhancer, condiment, and cooking oil in Korean cuisine.[1] The oil pressed from untoasted perilla seeds is used for non-culinary purposes.[1]


Production

Perilla oil is obtained by pressing the seeds of perilla, which contains 38-45% lipids.[2][3][4


Nutrition

Perilla oil is considered a rich source of fatty acids, and contains both saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. Saturated fatty acids in perilla oil are mainly palmitic (5-7%) and stearic (1-3%). Monounsaturated fatty acids in perilla oil are oleic (12-22%), while polyunsaturated fatty acids in perilla oil are linoleic (13-20%), gamma-linolenic (0-1%), alpha-linolenic (54-64%), and arachidic (0-1%).

In comparison to other plant oils, perilla oil exhibits one of the highest proportion of omega-3 fatty acids, which is between 54-64%.[5] The omega-6 fatty acid component is usually around 14%.[6][7]
