FULL TEXT  


AIM: Information on the physicochemical properties of the ostrich oil is very limited. The aim of this work was to investigate the component fatty acids and some physicochemical properties of ostrich oil.
METHODS: The fatty acids profiles include monounsaturated (MUFA), saturated (SFA), and polyunsaturated (PUFA). The major SFA were C16:0 and C18:0. The C18:1 was the prominent MUFA.
RESULTS: Physicochemical properties determined experimentally were iodine value, saponification number, melting point, refractive index, specific gravity and color.
CONCLUSION: A quick method for measuring alpha tocopherols and retinol in the ostrich oil has been developed using reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) with UV detection.
