Fatty acids profile of pulp and peel of mango (Mangifera indica Linn.) cultivar 'Espada' from Brazilian northeast region
Fatty acids of the lipid fraction obtained from the pulp and peel of the 'Espada' cultivar of mango cultivated in the northeast region of Brazil were analyzed. Thirteen fatty acids were identified among which the oleic acid was the most abundant for the lipid fraction of the peel, whereas for the pulp, the fatty acid in the highest concentration was palmitic, having for the peel and pulp the saturated fatty acids content of 45.41 and 79.74%, monounsaturated compounds of 46.88 and 18.62% and polyunsaturated compounds of 8.03 and 1.65%, respectively.
