BIOCHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF FRUITS OF SOME IMPORTANT WALNUT CULTIVARS AND SELECTIONS
The paper presents the results obtained in the study on biochemical composition of kernel (starch, sugars, proteins, oil, iodine number and refraction index) in the following eight cultivars and selections: Dorka, Ceinovo, Ibar, Vujan, Ovcar, G-139, G-251 and G-286. The average starch content in the cultivars studied amounted to 2.46%, Sugar content averaged 2.93%. It was found that the average value for proteins was 14.02%. Oils, which had the greatest content in kernel, averaged 68.81%. Iodine number, as an indicator of oil quality was 140.81 on average, whereas the average value for refraction index was 74.72 for all the cultivars studied.
