Fenugreek seeds were found to have a total lipid content of 7.5% (dry basis) consisting of 84.1% neutral lipids, 5.4% glycolipids and 10.5% phospholipids. The purified lipid was golden-yellow in colour, liquid at ambient temp. (25-30 degree C), had a bitter taste and disagreeable odour, had a free fatty acid content of 1.7 g oleic acid/100 g, and contained 9.1% unsaponifiable matter. The neutral lipids consisted mainly of triacylglycerides (86.6%). Of the 5 glycolipids, acylmonogalactosyldiacylglycerol (43.4%) and acylated sterylglycoside (37.5%) predominated. Of the 7 phospholipids, phosphatidylcholine (54.6%) and phosphatidylethanolamine (29.5%) predominated. The neutral lipids, glycolipids and phospholipids were analysed for fatty acid composition.
