Abstract

Fatty acid composition of three Mucuna beans varieties, M. cochinchinenses, M. utilis and M. pruriens (var IRZ) are reported. Fatty acids levels in the Mucuna seed oils were comparable, except that erucic acid (C22: 1n-9) occurred only in M. cochinchinenses. With reference to soybean, Mucuna seed oils were higher in total saturated fatty acids but lower in total unsaturates. It was concluded that Mucuna seeds could be exploited for oil and the by products used for livestock feeding.
